You know I rain on a lot of parades here about diesel boats, I try to say it as I know it.

BUT, this boat rocks, I wish you all the best, it's done like a diesel boat should be - very nice job!!!!

I still think the gearing is too low but testing will tell you that.

Again, I wish you the best - great effort, great looking boat - Good Luck!!

What inquiring minds want to know is:
HOW FAST WILL SHE GO???
(When she's not on the trailer)

she looks fast on the trailer. I did a 43 Nortech project, 480 Yanmars/ASD-8's which is a heavier-14500, longer-44'6" and she ran just under 75. I said earlier 78, Im going to bump it up to 81mph. I think the lighter over all weight, lower deck height, staggered motors and NXTs will help achieve a few extra mph. Hope I'm wrong and she runs in the mid 80's. Great project, Awesome graphics..Good Luck. Jeff
