I believe they are now completing hull #3, so that not bad for a boat that was still on the drawing boards last year. #3 has twin 300's and 2mpg at 47 mph is what they got on a heavier one with 350's, so this one could even be more efficient.

I also agree with you about the beautiful lines of the Freeman and personally feel that that feature was an important factor in its success, but the Compmillenia has never taken the time to be photographed by professionals and may be suffering in comparisons.

It takes at least a couple of years to design, build plugs that can be tested on the water and modified prior to producing molds and finally produce hulls. Lots of work.
