    Default It lives !!!!

    Here it is !!!! Ran great all weekend !!! A lot heavier than the Sanger, presently has 43 gears, takes a ton of power to push it. Runs about 60 Mph at 2500 rpm's. Seems to like 2 footers just fine, cuts through them and boat wakes like they don't exhist. A little bumpy in 3 footers but stays glued to the water cuts through like a knife. I cranked it to 5000 a couple of times, I figured about 80 mph at that rpm, didn't have a speedo or gps didn't have any trouble running right by a couple of 70 mph offshores. All in all very stable heavy safe feeling boat. It would probably crank about 6000 to 6200 with the set up it has now, but with the rough water in Tawas Bay 4000 to 4500 was my comfort zone. It cranks to about 4000 pretty quick then slowly climbs from there. I think I'm going to drop the gears to 32 over. Plan on going to Oscoda next Sat. afternoon.

    That's great, I'm going to have to remember that one.
    I would like to think that my boat is on the 15/15 rule.

    Yooper and Flatties boats are on the 1/1 rule. Those guys must spend the whole frigging winter polishing.

    Yeah, but the tech guys rule!
    Them show guys can polish, anodize, run braided hose, and still not run out of time for sculpting their pubic hair.
