Daaaaamn! That boat is WIDE! You got two 2-person bolsters, plus space to walk between them? And COUCH in the back? You could use that thing as a school bus...it looks like a really fun boat...congrats!

I noticed that yesterday on the water. I was looking around under the cabin.

So Spinning the drives outward helped it a little.

I think I am going to try some 4 or 5 blade props. I can loose a little speed.

I burned about 100 gallons through it yesterday. Took a little getting used to , but I stil have a lot to learn on driving it.
