I agree that Sunsation seems to have the most creative use of space and gadgets. I would love to see the back hatch in action as well

The new Sunsation was the hot topic, I'm bitter that I never could see it. I heard the boat magazines were all over it all weekend.

I didn't go, but referring to the "within reach boats".... I spoke with my dealer today and they said HotBoat & F&PB mag are definitely lining up a profile for the Innovator soon. I'm sure powerboat mag won't be far behind on this "out of the box" design. I did also hear about the awesome Nor-Tech Cat on the dreamer's scale...

The Sunsation Innovator ran some good numbers at Lake X, Wayne (President of Sunsation) is still working to get the final numbers/ Dialed in (tweeked). If Dave from Sunsation would like to reveal those numbers I will leave it up to the Sunsation gang. But I will say it is impressive and a full pleasure layout to boot. This boat is going to be worth the wait. It is going to be a leader in speed and Handling.

Rumor has it that during one of the rides down there it (Innovator) shot up quick to 81 in the time it takes to draw a breath and that was in not so good waters. Also, another rumor has it doing low 90's with the HP500's and mid 80's with 496HO's...As with all new designs, it'll take some time to get used to, but I see others coming up with out of the box setups to attract new attention and customers as a result of this one not to mention the new hull performance aspects with the notches up front to improve turns...
