Like you don't have to balance an Allison? You ever set one up?

My Allison has a 22 degree deadrise. I understand weight and balance, CG, etc.

Running semi cleavers and cleavers. I guess we'll see.

Really, I appreciate the comments. Thank you!

I never stated that you did not have to balance an Allison. I have never setup an Allison, never wanted one, but , two friends were the best in the nation racing them. I do understand setup and I am still in the process of getting all I can out of my cat which is transom heavy. My friend who raced Allisons has been helping me with my setup and we have discussed the setup on his Allison for years. The Allison hull is an awesome piece it just doesn't interest me. Your aircraft on the other hand........ I'm thinking about an ultalight. Enjoy your new hotrod.

My experiences with you V guys just reminded me why all my boats are tunnels.

as I was telling you when you were in the boat that this Sonic drives totally different (and so far is 10 MPH's slower) than the last one.
Only difference are huge tabs which I know is a big part of it and it has an additional 4" of set back. Totally different boat though.

I was watching your boat too when we were running together. While I was running just bellow getting punched in the shoulder speeds, you guys could have been playing cards in yours!

Paul, it will drive WAY DIFFERENT than your A Bote.
