The boat looks great, have fun with the upgrades! I am excited to see what you have in mind for it.

Peace,

Thanks..

Currently the boat is bone stock.

It was a low to mid 60's boat originally, but slices thru the rough like a hot knife thru butter.. My target speed at some point will be to get another 10+ mph out of her which will be pretty easy for me to do.. I am unsure as to if I want to puch this one over the 80 or 90mph mark, but that has been done too on these hulls.

I will probably do some interior work at some point, although the current original one is in like new condition. I just am not that fond of the gray currently. I will probably also do some updates to the dash & gauges, but keep an old school look.

Beyond that I am going to update the old original bravo to a new heavier one along with external latham steering.. Along the way I will be doing sprucing as needed to the rest of the boat..

Jamie / Lakeside
