Thanks Jay, Your pics bring it to life. Cintron got on top about 115mph at 130 she was in a really nice groove. Anyone who has ever raced in Miami water knows the NE/E Atlantic swells really challenge you to accelerate while the boat is in the water. Holding a big number in Miami water is physically draining the CG has to be perfect and you must be on top in the turns or massive HP will slam the big boat broadside into the swells on tight turns (hull won't last long).

Alvin, it's nice to know there are others that truly understand what i'm talking about. Knowing the right steps to take to maximise the performance/handling potential of a hull/power and the detailed actions in which to acomplish it is always an education when talking with Gary Stray. When we come in from a test session and explain what the boat did or did not do and what we need....he explains what is happening ( what we were doing wrong then makes it happen right.

I certainly agree with Marc. Gary and his crew did and always do a fantastic job. The boat ran great. 130 was like sitting in the living room, which is a testament to Gary's setup ability.

Just one question Marc. Doesn't the hull actually have to spend some time touching the water for it to be considered a "boat"?





Looks like an awsome flight.
