Is this above the waterline, up near the bow eye?

It should only be a few hundred dollars to fix. And nothing is as good as gelcoat.

You can buy a little stainless steel colored head screws in black and white at Lowe’s.

I am certain you can find them on Amazon too.

I could consider painting the outboards aqua camo. All you can see below below are some antennas chasing a shiny anchor. :D :D

I wouldn't want triples for this. I'd like to take advantage of them being closer together (than a side/side BBC setup), for less drag. And when you get into triples on a V-bottom, then you end up...

I don't know what that boat has in it today, but maybe Brad Smith. It had ZZ572s in it at one time when Jeffrey Cheng owned it (which I personally thought was badass). The link from that old thread...

Just curious, what kind of "perfect conditions" top speed do you think a 36' Gladiator with a pair of 450Rs would run?
4 sit down bolsters, and a back seat extending into the former bilge would be...

There is virtually no difference in running at 35 or 38 boat. The COST to MANUFACTURE a 38 over a 35 is nominal. Albeit MSRP and sales prices do not reflect that. If you find a 38ZR that suits...
