    Let me see what I have. Of all the boats I have built I am most happy with the way that this one turned out. First time luck I geuss. Or maybe it was all the time hanging in the pits and asking alot of questions. M

    I was in seattle for 40 minutes today. I am doing great. how are you doing. Great score on that SWTD that is a clean boat.

    It is odd however that they cut the pod and essentially moved the pump forward in the boat. normally, when the pod is cut down, the intake stays in relatively the same location and allowing the boat to remain the same length with the rideplate and still clearing a popoff. By cutting the pod and moving the pump forward, the boat will be shorter, almost defeating the purpose of the pod which was added to move the pump back but was prior to the set back and TA plates. If you need me to take that boat off your hands, just let me know. It is just a 24 hour drive from my house to pick it up. I would love to have a center steer race boat to play with. I am waiting for a smoking deal to come along again like the one I got on Lickity Splits Crusader I rescued from a skillsaw death.

    It will Rod, Time on the lake and time in the seat. Tunnels will make you lift when the boat is getting it's attitude. My old C.P. did the same thing. What I like to call the 1-2 hop. you can't peddle a tunnel and expect it to get the lift and air it needs to go fast. Load the pump and let the boat go.
