I have a labbed one on the way, and I will update with warmer temps, and loaded.

That will be the true test...

Those are great numbers JL. I KNOW it has more than that. Wait until you get into consistant 2 footers.

My wife was on that boat at the Miami show and see liked it. It looked like a very nice package. Enjoy you get alot of boat for the money. Thought the bolster could be moved back a liitle though.

I can't wait...! I just wish I had some different props to try out before the season starts. It seems I could go up in pitch, but then again I haven't tried running it with any weight. People, gas, cooler, stereo, etc.
Big factor as a whole!

I totally agree…I am a pretty skinny guy and I have to squeeze in between the steering wheel and bolster. But, I have to say after driving the boat, it did give you an added feeling of security running at high speeds.

JL, I saw the close fit on the bolster/steering wheel on your boat. The steering hub actually comes in three sizes, or thicknesses, and you can get a shorter one to put the wheel closer to the dash. This will help some. I have no problem with mine, as I like the fit too; but others do not.

Thank you, that's good information...I did ask about that, and never recieved an answer from Sonic. After driving the boat though, I think it will be ok in the present location.

JL, Great speed, I guess the infused hull helped quite a bit ( the ITS system supposedly helps this boat also), I wonder if Sonic has changed the x dimension with the ITS. In the picture of the engine compartment, what's the fiberglass structure to the left of the header? Is it just a cosmetic cover for the stringer or something else? If the bolster was moved back any farther the rear seat legroom would suffer. You can't have a large cabin, walk around deck, roomy engine compartment and a big cockpit! It's only a 26' boat I have a Prowler and think it offers alot for it's size! Steve
