Default Name that boat.

Finally,!! my Avanti is scheduled to be shipped next weekend.
I need a good and fitting name for it. It's been a long frustrating road, but looks like it will end with a happy note.

Also.. let's have a pull. I wonder what will be the top speed.
The closest guess gets a case of brew from me. (just for the heII of it)
33'4".. deep "V" no step. twin 525's. ITS and Sport master shorties. 8000 LB dry.

This is how it looked some time ago.

Can you use Paradox? I'm laughing at how close we all thought on speeds, 80.5.

Yup. speeds are close, names are good.
My first Avanti (the one that flipped back in Nov.) had 496's .. mags. std. Bravos. topped out at 72 in light chops.
Paradox would be fitting, But, I thought of "Second Chanse" also.
Keep them coming ..
