hey thanks. i've seen some pics of your boat on here and even spoke with a few people about it. (very nice) would look more like yours if i didnt have 2 little kids and a wife but anyway. how far forward is your motor and v-drive. and have you ever had it set up as a family cruiser. and if so how did it handle then?

I've had 2 in the past that I converted from race boats to family style when my kids were young, but still ran blowers. I believe 22" from the transom to the rear motor plate was were I placed the motor. Gave enough room for a back seat and still handler good. They work good as duel purpose family hot rod.

My current 19' the motor is at 32" and is run off the snout. 2 seat race set up. Still working on handling the power. Put in a prop release, trued the bottom, shortened and shaped the fins & pick ups. Should be ready to run again soon for some prop testing.
