Default Wilson Custom Marine........

Well just got back from Jacksonville Poker Run, and ran my boat for the first time after sending my lower units on my 6 drives, out to get Blue Printed by Wilson Custom Marine.
Well the out come was great, the handling was 100 times better, ran straight as a arrow. We also picked up 11 mph or were able to drive the boat to those speeds cause of the handling so much better. Wow great out come........

WCM is glad you are another satisfied customer. The boat looked great. Now we need to tweak on your props and overall boat balance and see if we can get you over the 120 mph mark for the next Poker Run.

Thanks again guys, would have never thought, what you did would have such a huge change in how the boat handles.
Yes and Jeff at Herring is working on another set of props as we speak. Looking at 125 number.....

I'd love to see some before & after pics. I heard there are some on Facebook but IT Police don't allow us access.

Anyone have any??

here's Craig Wilsons # 772-285-3562, give him a call. I was very skeptical about getting it done at first, but he took one look at my drives and said is your boat doing this and that, and I was like yes those are the problems Im having. Give them to me and I will fix that, ok take them if anything the handling will be better, I thought. I got them back boat drives straight as an arrow and I was able to go 11mph faster and have more in the boat, still playing with props. And 106 to 117 was running the same props.
