Owner said ~60mph w/ 25p WOT???



Little dirty from the trip
Welcome to the board, it looks like you may be the first new member of 2012!!!

I'd say that 60 would be achievable with your 22 and 300hp.
Scarab's always have good hulls for speed and your boat isn't super big. My buddy has a 23 Baja with 330hp, it's always good for high 50's to low 60's in the right water conditions.

Congrats on your new boat!!!

Happy New Year,
Kelly

We can help you on that interior! Here is a before/after on a 22 that we did last summer.

Dave,
Your upholstery work looks fantastic on this boat, WAY TO GO!!!

I look forward to the busy season again so I can get back with removing my rear bolsters to open my cockpit up some and having you guys to help address my needs.
If you stumble across one of the wet bar centers please PM me.

Smitty, when your ready to perform your upgrades give these folks a call. All the work I've seen posted from them and their customers has been AWESOME.

See ya,
Kelly

Smitty,

I have a customer coming here from Belle River ON. Canada with a empty trailer to pick-up his new 28 Velocity interior in the next couple weeks! Is that close to you? The engine hatch is the biggest problem in shipping.
