Default My new Avalon Pontoon! powered by twin Mercury Racing 400R's

I wanted to share some some pics of my new Avalon 2785 Ambassador Tri Toon, powered by twin Mercury Racing 400R's. It is a test toon to see how it performs and handles. Pretty sure we will be selling them for the 2017 model year. It is on facebook, so you may have already seen it [ATTACH=CONFIG]556894[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]556895[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]556896[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]556897[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]556898[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]556899[/ATTACH]

That might be my next boat. Wife keeps talking she wants a pontoon boat. Maybe I can get one with twin 800 hp inboards?

Facebook posts mention mid 70's with the wrong props....

One question- how do you keep Grandma's Hoverround secured on board at 70+mph?

While I think it's awesome, and it's faster than my boat, and it'll hand most jet-skiis their arse....

"Girdle Dropper" just doesn't have a good ring to it.

That's all the Preperation Hate I have to spare right now.

I would have thought triples would be the logical power on a tri-toon.
