Thanks Alex!

Jr, yes the work was done by Brent through ECM. I've been told by all the above that the boat ran mid 90's very stable with "no" tab input whatsoever. Again, I can't confirm this until I get behind the wheel. It is interesting though...
Thanks,
Dave

Wow Dave, this is looking incredible! Nice work once again! It might not be a good idea for me to ride in it though. Not sure my wife could handle another boat motor project lol.

Dave,
It looks like your boat is coming along nicely. I spoke with the previous owner (Tom?) on a couple occasions about blueprinting the hull like that one is. He said he had some great success so I'm sure you're going to end up with a very nice/fast boat. Keep us updated!

Lavey has built a few 2750's with a standoff box and the new bottom. It works better than without a box.
But if your boat handles perfect without it and you're happy with it then there's no need to change it and spend the extra money.

Can't wait to see some numbers!
Jr, my former boat was at ECM and Brent worked the bottom along with Paul. It now belongs to NordicFlame and will be a screamer. Lavey paid ECM a few visits after Paul told them the numbers he was getting. Paul asked me if it was alright if he showed Lavey the bottom and I told him OK. Lavey went to school on that bottom. I have run the boat 95 gps with no tabs and it was still climbing and was smooth as silk. Paul ran it 97gps on Elsinore and ran out of water. I hated to let the boat go but did because of the lack of use.

Good luck with that, I've had 5 back surgeries, best advice, as awesome as your boat is, DON'T jump the gun and get in it too early. I found that standing up is the only way I can ride nowadays, unless it's like glass. Keep you legs bent and let them absorb the shock. Again good luck and a speedy recovery!
