I just have to find a way to get the MH in the back of the Ford so I can tow the AT at the same time.

FF2, do you have any pictures of your interior, specifically the combing pads on the side? I only have on on my port side which needs redone, and I want to make one for the starboard side like yours.

What HP do you have? Do you know about roughly about how long of a run, time or mileage wise, the 5 gallons can get you?

Mine came with a fin that bolts to the cavitation plate, but it was not installed when I sea-trialed it. I have some dialing in to do. I also want to install a bilge pump.

Thanks!

Yup, Ill get them too ya. I have a 25 merc. running around 4000 I can get 3-4 hours out of the 5 gallons. I have a 500 CCa battery up front the the tank behind the seat. Buy yourself a 13p Vengence prop and send it to Bblades. With 5.5 inch CMC setback/trim ittl just touch 40..that was when I was 110 lbs..now...35-38 maybe? Ill get the pics for u

Get this:
When I get to the guy's house, he has a picklefork jetboat and a strangely familiar Cougar tucked neatly in the garage. We shot the chit for a while and it turns out it is THIS Cougar:

He bought it from the guy in the video & his brother who did the "production".
That video is a Masterpiece! Nicely done. Thx for the moment.

Thanks a bunch. I need to figure out how to install a tach. I don't want to do too much modifying, so the pitot speedo is coming out in favor of a handheld GPS.
