Default Superboat 30 Y2K! Me three!

I知 pretty excited! I知 getting back into boating after a hiatus. Back 2010 Selling my Y2K was the right thing to do. But I sure have missed it. Having boating on the brain I知 always looking, bigger and smaller, Center console or down east style. A wide spectrum of boats each with its own attributes. I keep coming back to the Y2K. I love its size, rough water attributes, in my eyes great looks and trailerability. This will be my third build with John, and most importantly I feel comfortable doing business with him and appreciate Ricks talent in the shop. I also have the desire when I知 on the water to be able to get places in a timely fashion. I wanted to do something a little different, I pondered the 860/6 Drive. But this time around we decided to go with twin 300R壮. After reading about the 300R痴 attributes and performance results on the installs thus far, JC and I are pretty optimistic. The 300R痴 seem to be in very short supply though I知 patient. Let痴 see how things go!

Well no YouTube video but we did manage to splash it today!! John and John jr. had a chance this morning and ran a set of bravo 32痴 prior to my arrival. They felt it was a bit squirrelly. By the time I arrived they came up with a set of 33p 5 blades 15 dia. exhaust thru hub to try. By this time it was raining pretty hard. We did one pass across the bay, rain felt like bullets, my head still tingles. We had it running 80. Had trouble getting out of the hole with that prop but jr. said boat handled much better. Weren稚 using any tab. May need to raise the the motors, as it痴 set up with the jack plate all the way up the the bullet is about even with the bottom. Bottom line couldn稚 see with the rain and didn稚 have a chance to play around. Never came off plane or had a chance to mess with tabs, trim, or height. Ultimately need to put some thought as to our next move and get some more props to test.

I hope Rick is as generous with his time forthcoming with pictures and documentation as he did with my first Y2K build as this Superboat comes to life!

Congrats! I know this will be a great boat. I bought Superstitious' Y2K from him back in 2010. I think it was one of the nicest Y2K's ever built. I miss it too. When is the new boat going to be ready?

Thanks Dave! It痴 going to be a few months off, again the availability of the engines Could be an issue. Funny I looked back and pulled the trigger back in February 2005
on superstitious and I didn稚 pick the boat up to the second week of August, that was a busy year for JC and Y2K builds. JC has a few things in the works currently. This past February, when I first called him, I told him he needed to wish me a happy anniversary and in the discussion about the possibility of a new boat ensued. John said he値l be 3 1/2 months... We shall see.

I didn稚 get a direct answer from John but Rick痴 been back a while say a year or two though he痴 been absent from both OSO and scream and fly. I have initially tried to PM Rick on both sides but he hadn稚 responded but it was certainly nice to see him back at it at Superboat.

Did they start your boat yet? I saw some pics on Facebook of a new Y2K going into the mold.

I知 not on Facebook. I would assume so. One of the first orders of business that I知 considering is maybe doing Coosa board for the stringers. When having a discussion with John about using that in the build. The topic turn to using it in the transome. He felt there was to much flex and created some issues in a previous cc build. He recommended against it with the setback.
