Long and painfull story bro.
The first Avanti I had, flipped on the highway, on the way to KW. I'm trying to finnish and get this one done. New hull and motors, good rough water boat, very few around.. So second effort on my part with the Avanti.=> 2's, double.. twice.. etc..

Bow..
Boat is in St Pete getting finished with the rigging. A few minor odds and ends and should be ready for testing Monday.
Planning to take it for the Jax PR. but it will be in NPR till Thursday AM. and back Sunday PM. It's been a stressfull and frustrating road, but it's almost over.

Finally the maiden voyage of the Avanti, while it was a short test drive, the boat is done.
After 6 months of stress, frustration and head ache she had her first plunge.
With a standard 28” prop, 70.1 KNT. In smooth seas. So who gets the beer? Do the math. (80.67 MPH)
After some dialing in, I think I’ll get mid 80’s.
I owe some beer to some one, and gladly take care of it. Time to play.

The results are in. After some testing, and some great choppie chit seas in KW. (Saturday back from the YCOA party... we went out to play a little.) Love that rough stuff.

We hit 91.2 with Bravo labbed 32's. (Hand held GPS)
So ,, who gets the second batch of Heiny.? (I still owe Cash his)
The lady is still nameless.
