Jay = Spectre = us1kw For those who do not know. I always wonder how you guys know more about a boat than the guy who builds them?

NO,when you see a boat with a fiberglass single piece tab bolted to the back that should tell you something.The spectre is not easy on drives either only xrs or bravo's.

Im not bashing the one for 95k looks pretty good with the 575's
You can power through the hop or re work the bottom a bit.

mine did with both merc and hering props.... matt at throttle up made me a custom set, after explaining what was happening w/ the boat etc...

now it runs w/ out any hop, at any speed range, and is MEGA fast for a 1075 boat.

hope that helps,

Most new cats seem to use a tunnel tab to some extent from say 2002 to present. MTI, Skater, Spectre, DCB, Eliminator, etc. Matter of choice and where you run your boat at. 60-70 seems a different area except for the new designs such as the Spectre 32 and 42.

Ok boys - a thought from a girl ........
SHUT UP! If you are afraid of a little hoppin, keep your d**k in your pants and stay home on the couch. Get a freakin life!
I have run boats all over the Caribbean and a little hop between 60-70 is nothing to be afraid of. Butch up!
