I've been painting and rigging this boat for 10 1/2 weeks straight now. The last 3 weeks I worked till 1:00am almost every night! Man I'm glad it's done. I'm gonna test run it tommorrow and I'll Be "Profiling" this Memorial Day weekend at Silver Glen on the St. Johns River here in Florida. I alreday have someone coming to look at butying it tommorrow, so this weekend may be my last chance to play with it. The last one, [red one] sold the first week also. Someday I'll get to keep one longer. Everything has blue LED lighting. Very cool at night! Anyway, here's a bunch of pics. The boat also has a huge front cabin!

Wild Man thats one nice looking boat, and your a heck of a painter. My only complaint is that you should have turned it upside down and cut that center pod out before you painted it. :laugher:
If you rode in this boat, you'd never even consider cutting out the pod! We ran it today on a dead calm lake. Not even a 2" lope at any speed whatsoever. We had 2 people, 50 gallons of gas, and the plug came out of the center pod. We kept seeing the outsde sponsons bilge pumps coming on every 60 seconds. Turns out the plug came out of the center pod[there's no pump in the center] Anyway, the entire center pod would fill with water and overflow into the outside sponsons! I guess that added 50-60 gallons of weight too. ANYWAY, we still ran 96.8 mph. Not bad for such a loaded up boat. I've got a couple videos I'll download tonight. Here's some pics from today.
