Why am I always the one that asks the questions? Let me have it...
Well, in short. A couple features are; two 7 gal tanks stored in the gunwalls hooked to a pump that sucks all the drive oil out. The system also doubles as a means to empty the oil for changing. The trim pumps Etc all have custom extensions on the tops to keep the fluid from leaking out. The fuel cells are both routed to the port side ofthe boat making it possible to tow the boat full of fuel. There's other aspects of it but I'm told it's all going to be covered in detail in an upcoming issue of powerboat mag!

He did a lot of cool ("first addition") stuff. Painting the bottom, the air intakes flush on the sides of the deck, foot mics for the VHS radio that comes through the headsets, iphone and hands free bluetooth for the headsets, additional polished rings behind the gauge bezzle, etc. etc. Attention to detail is impressive.

Nice I would think he would do a 1300 to 1500 to test and play with then sell them as a new line once you get 1100 or 1200 you got to mess with them every 25 to 50 hours so go for it. I can't wait till next spring to put my DEAN GELLNER BLOWN 572 in a new or worst case my old hull. Thanks tank hope you had a good summer. artie
