Congrats! Great Looking!

I think you'll be surprised how much fun it is to drive!

Be prepared for young girls and old men to come running up the docks for a look.

We pulled our rear bolsters for the space, women tend to ride up front in sun, guys hang around center console.

Keep some sleeves on board, a little more wind down the sides than you are used to.

Bob, Does that seat go across the entire back or do you have a door also?

It goes across the whole back. I had the opening where the transom door goes glassed in as I pointed out to Manny the transom is so low its easier to just step over the transom than screw around with such a small door. It looks good. I had them do a few other changes in the glasswork that I expect may one day be standard. I also found the seats on each side of the cabin door too small and had those enlarged with more storage under them. I'm very happy w how it all turned out and nice to have their co operation.

Bob,

Tried to send you a email through OSO and said your box was full. Was going to ask a couple of question on how Manny set your boat up. I saw from the pictures that your motors are set in the 3 hole, mine are set in the 2 hole. I'm using 21" Revolution 4 blade props. My hole shots are great and top end is 63 at 6300 rpms. I'm very happy with the way the boat performs overall and just curious how your's may differ from mine.

I will clean out my inbox today. Manny has worked with Paul Perzyk extensively on testing right props and X dimension setup. I'm told the way mine is set up is the right combination. I can give you Paul's contact info if you like. He is in Cape Coral. I think Paul gets a couple more MPH. Also I want to get more hours on it before I open it up so not sure what to expect. Also ordered the heavier lower unit which is geared differently and will cost me a couple of MPH. I will make that trade off any day of the week for reliability.

Finally. Was beginning to wonder if I would ever get a look at the new toy.
