Hey Turbo...your boat might be great but lets talk about the driver!!!!! I could swear that it was Stinson throttling your boat...cocked halfway to the moon...shooting for Pluto!!!!! It is usually at that moment that Stinson will tell the driver to turn!!!!!! That is another subject. Lyall, do you know what the drive trim buttoms are for???? Does your boat have trim tabs??? Better check the manual buddy. How did you do that in calm seas????

Your boat goes 81????? It will probably do 89 if you maintained a proper ride angle!!!! How many hours do you have under your belt????? Two????? Maybe you should have attended the high performance boating school in Sarasota?????

If I were you, I would keep that picture to yourself!!! You better put yourself on OSO probation for that picture!!!! Even the Phantom knows better!!!! You can still delete the reply so maybe word won't get out beyond the current audience.

Sorry Turbo and sorry to all the OSO members that had to witness that picture.

DMan....and the D is for Dummy Driver

Very nice boats, the old ones were kinda slow though. But if you're looking for a great ride and nice workmanship they're all good. If you want speed go with a newer Fastech.

I have the 292 with the 377s. running 32 labs goes on plane in no time. top speed on the GPS 84 mph. I take it offshore and run to ST.AUGUSTINE ,very smooth ride for the size of the boat. I use 30 labs ,not much diff. ,maybe planes a little faster.
