Holy sh!t, that looks great. I saw the first pic and first thought that was the upgrade...I was thinking, "ooooookay"...Then I scrowled down and saw the actual new interior...WOW! Looks awesome.

By the way, sorry to get off track. I see you have an F34. How do you like it? I know they didn't build very many because some didn't like the way it performed. What are you seeing with that power. Awesome set up man. Very nice looking ride.

Tank,
The 34 is pretty heavy and was not real fast with lower power levels. Mine had all the bottom modifications by Dave and it is a pretty good
handler. It is a deep tunnel and handles the rough very well. Has a significant hop in smooth water between 80-100 that can be removed with the tunnel tab. The boat really starts to feel great over 100. It also leans to the outside between 35 and 65, otherwise leans inside. It's handling really improved with higher propeller height and the SSM props. Tres Martin really taught me how to handle the boat well. You can ask him about it at Desert Storm. He'll tell you exactly what it felt like.
I think the boat was never popular out west because it is not nimble
enough to be fun in the narrower lakes. DCBs 32, 31 are centerpods, very fast and nimble, with great characteristics. As for
the speed, I'll have to keep that under my hat.

HAHAHA! I hear ya on the speed.

I noticed the pod on the 34 is very small (almsot not even there). Sounds like you got it dialed in just right. Congrats! And again, the interior came out tits! Looks like a new boat!

Speaking of Desert Storm...You bringing it out?
