For not having test time to dial it in, I would say it ran real well !

The boat looks to be able to achieve 110 to 112 with ease once dialed in.

Once we got outside the cut the seas got much bigger but you would only know by looking at it. The boat didn't seem to care what it was running in. It flew extremely level whenever we saw air time. Which was quite a bit. The boat was also very quiet and had a different sound to it. You could actually hold a conversation without yelling.

Thats kinda of what Ive herd, I was told that it had an amazing ruff water ride, and it "turns like an f-1 boat!" What is the purpose of the bussel extention over the drives, transom lift? possible rudder perphaps? just curious.
Thanks.

Yes, its a 700 boat. The bow never flies high on this boat! We ran 80-85 in some rollers with chop on top about 3-4ft. The boat ran absolutly awesome!! It planned with ease kind of like a cat. Like Sharkey said the boat didnt really care what it was running in. We hit 106 with five on board and close to full fuel. Whats cool is all you hear is the whine of the superchargers. The interior was top knotch on this boat for being in the mold only a week before the show! OL stepped it up on this SL 41!!
