    Old muds got I.T. 31 knots top end. Was turning around 1000 rpms below what I should be getting, so going to get that dialed in. Might raise the engine and inch or so as well. Had a little more than expected cavitation in the turns.

    jd, if you raise the engine you will get more cavitation/ventilation in the turns. If your anti ventilation plate is fair with your bottom that's as far up as you can go. If it's deeper than the bottom than yes you will get more revs. out of the engine. :)

    Ran the boat from south glastonbury down the CT river to Ningret pond in charlestown ri on saturday. Boat ran awesome. Hoping to try new prop out this weekend. Ran into a some weather when we finally reached the ocean. My dad and i were actually able to stay dry under the doghouse in a pretty heavy rain, until it was down pouring sideways lol. Surprisingly comfortable for what we were in though. Ducked into Niantic and tied up next to my buddy while it passed. Boat was very smooth in the chop that we saw. Will report more on handling once i have her in a bigger sea.

    Thanks Woundup! She really does go good. It was a great feeling first time I had her in 2-3 chop, soft ride.

    Wow awesome boat! Just saw this thread for the first time. Did you build the mast for the lights yourself? It looks great. Very impressed with the running angle of the hull, and performance with a 150. It looks at least 25'.
