Hey CFD5,
How do you like you new ride. It used to be a friend of mines here in Pennsy, before he went to the other side of boating, fishing.

I love it. Not the fastest but does pretty well with stock power. Definately a wave crusher! One thing for sure, your buddy kept this boat in great shape considering how much of it is original.

I would either leave it or go all white. I vote for all white.
What are you running for power and what speeds are you getting? Awesome boat you have there.

Carbed 454 mags. Original motors/180hrs on rebuilds. Stainless marine exhaust. The day that pic was taken it was 60 degress out, 4 people 1/2 tank and gps'd at 71.7mph. It's a solid 68-69mph boat on a normal day.

I didn't answer the question of your post, I would take the forward most arrow off and repaint the back two. What props are you running, I thought Dave got a little more speed out of it? The bravos or the Mach's?

He told me it ran a 68 with the 24P bravo 4blades on it know. Those are the props I still have on it and I got 71. He also told me it would pick up a few with 25P mirage 3blades but I would loose cruise and accel. So far the boat runs so well and accelerates pretty hard so I'll probably leave the 24's on it till I upgrade the motors. Still undicided on the paint, but I have always loved all white boats.
