Sea Trial Impressions
I personally was aboard the vessel in June of 2011 in the ICW waterway. Weather was 10 knots and sunny, there was the normal afternoon boat wake action. Boat performed very well. At wide open throttle speeds were around 26 knots, at 2600 RPM. A very comfortable and economical cruise was 2100 RPM at 20knots. Noise levels were very acceptable and there was absolutely no noticeable drive vibration. Boat runs at a very nice attitude as you can see in the pictures, and is very dry. Planing was done at around 15 knots. All in all an impressive ride. The size of the deck space is truly remarkable and the interior freeboard creates a very secure feeling at speed. Gunnel height aft is mid to lower thigh as you would want in a fishing boat. Much higher forward for a dry and safe ride. Owner purchased boat in 1999 and has always kept it dry stored. Hull is factory awlgrip red. 20,000 # lift included in sale.
