Congratulations! Once you own a Velocity/Thoroughbred..... you're a fan for life (IMHO). I really enjoyed mine-

This is my 4th velocity and my 2nd 390. Let me tell ya all, this boat is unreal !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have driven every perf. v.bottom on the planet. There is nothing that goes through water like this new 390. I dont care what you have !!!!!!!!!!! (in the same size range) Ben Pain and I Ran this boat through every thing we can find. We had 60 gal in the 2 back tanks . We could not get the boat to stand up. It ran flat and fast 86mph. With one eng. at 5100rpms and the other at 4700 rpms. The one keeps on pulling the timeing back to 9 deg. at wot. Im calling inovations. tomarow. It should run in the 90s

Congrats on the new boat. So did they make a recent change to the bottom?

We did a full stag. with 500s I had bumped up to 565s. And raised the x dim. a bit. I drive a lot of Velocitys ,But nothing like this one. The back tanks where full. The gulf was a mess! abunch of storms in shore 630pm buy Sanibel isl. The boat is still not all there , But its going to fly!
