    Nice looking boat. I can’t wait to see the cabin. What’d you tow it with and how’d it tow?

    Been waiting, definitely need more pictures and some performance numbers although it's getting a little brisk to be out on the water. That 200 hp must get it moving. Good luck

    A few more pictures; relatively short trial just to check things working. WOF at 5850 rpm, 38.5 mph, 33+knots
    fuel gauge has not been calibrated so take gph with a grain of salt

    You'll have to get one of those drone operators to get some running footage. Downeast Cowboy or Terry Boivin. They're both on the facebook.

    Very nice rig; good luck with her next year. Winterize her and put her to bed for the year. Must be like getting that shiny new bike on Christmas day and it is snowing out!

    Sharp! I have the same trailer. Had to raise the bunks because there was only about a half inch clearance to the fender.

    And, apologies if this has ready been asked, but where is the mast from and how much $?

    Cannot really give a good reply
    do NOT intend to go out far; am not a fisherman , up and down the coast rather than out. As long as (heaven forbid) the towing services can reach me

    @kcassells I do 30-40 mile trips offshore with my 23CB, it’s pretty comfortable up to 3ft. Of course having a raft and survival gear adds to comfort level and would be recommended but the boat does fine. I’d imagine the 22GM would be no different.
