It believe it will be at the Support The Troops Poker Run at LOTO 6/24. Looking forward to seeing it up close.

I'm in total shock over this result.
I'm even more shocked you've actually owned a boat!



Nice work Sunsation!

something wrong if the ao31 runs only 114 on 700's. my friends runs that speed with 525's. are you propped right?

The XT packages with the quarter canopies is really slick and appropriate for a boat that runs this fast.

I have followed the story of this model for some time and it is impressive on many levels. The most impressive of these is what it has done for a family-owned-run company with a giant heart.

That was a LONG time ago. I don't remember what the props were but they could have been 4 blade 30s. Motors were 502/700SCs. It was a shakedown cruise on Grand Lake for the owner who was in Chicago IIRC.
