Default Trying out a 30CC next week.

Was up on LI a month or so ago and visited SB. I was curious about the Black Label 29, but upon seeing the 30CC I got curious. John asked me about conditions where we use the boat and how wed use it. He suggested the 30CC would be a better fit.
He invited me back up to have a ride in his sons 30CC. Got a long NYC layover and if things go as planned (time to spare, go by air) Ill see how that extra 6 of hull over what my 24CC has affects the ride.
If I decide to pull the trigger Im thinking the new 400 V10. John agrees and thinks itd be a great setup.
Might be a 24CC on the market this fall.

Got a ride in Johns sons 30 CC a few days ago. Very impressive! The weather was perfect for what I needed to experience with maybe 2+ chop. The ride was much better than my 24 which is already very good. John Jr. had us running 60mph in those conditions up, down and with cross seas.
I was also amazed at how quiet the 350 Verado was compared to my 300XS.
Looks like a 24CC will be coming on the market in the near future.

I purchased the blue hulled 30CC that John has that is nearly complete. Just needs the console and interior installed.
The new V10 400R arrived at my Mercury dealer a couple days ago. All electronics and rigging will be done here in SC.

Had a long NYC layover last week so I hopped on the LIRR and took a ride out to Copaigue to check on progress. All the interior components have been fabled and are ready to install. The polished stainless Lectro racing tabs arrived a few days ago, John will be installing, but not wiring them.
