Looks great with the new interior. Who did the upholstery?

They just did this one for me. They also do all my 30ft Liberators. They do awesome work!

I took the boat out again today. I got it running right now that I fixed the broken fuel and bleeder lines. I could only hold it open for about 10 seconds before the overheat horn would go off. It has a Torquemaster case with only side water intakes. The shaft is 4.5" below the bottom, but for some reason, it sucks air when I get up to speed. I only expected to be able to run about 60 before it got out of control. I discovered that if I keep the nose in the water a bit, it's not to bad to drive. Now for the biggest surprise.

I was by myself, so no way to video it. I hope to next time. I was very surprised that the boat could be driven at those speeds. If the boat had a pad, I'm sure it would really scream. I told the wife about it. She asked if I had a death wish! I just said "NO" but it sure was fun! Here's some more pics from today.
