Hey thanks guys
Ok answers to questions.
Tom: River... What speed limits? We're going too fast to read those signs they have posted. I don't know what they say.
Jazz: 36 = 9600lbs, 43 = 12,000 lbs
Baja: Total capacity is 300 gals
Wicked: Very stable, 604 cid, about 8lbs of boost, 1100 HP @ 6100 RPM. We got about 5900 out of it. Calm and 85 degrees.
Yes that was Catmando he's in charge of P.R. for us now.

Wow Terry. Looks like that crappy design is as sweet as it looks! Will it be present at the Ft. Myers run?

Do you need me to drive the 4300 Vee in the run now that you have upgraded??

Brandon,
Unfortunately the latest in "Crappy" technology has to head north today for T.A.O.D., they're holding the door open. It will not be on the run.
Get your dad to buy my boat, I'll get a 43 cat and dedicate a seat just for you.

Terry:

I have always wondered how long you take on a new hull design to air it out for the first time. I assume you work your way up the lmph adder, but did you reach 142 after 10 minutes of seat time or hours/days?

It must be a rush to be the test pilot.

Great looking boat. Good luck.

Scott,
Probably a lot sooner than we should. However this is just a variation of our existing hulls. After having many many hours in the 50 and then 36 you can tell if it's doing what it is supposed to. You definately pucker up the first time and we take as much caution w/ it as we can but the ride was amazing and better yet, controlled and stable.
Terry
