Ha. i just spent all day wiring in the same Blue Sea panel in one of my boats. Now if anybody asks me whats sets me apart from my competitors, I'll tell them we use the same fuse panels as the lightning yachts!

I didn't realize you could shoot a transducer through a wood hulled boat? Is that one that shoots through the hull, or is it a thru hull? (or maybe that big yellow thing isn't a ducer?)

Awesome boat. Someone is going to be very fortunate to receive that boat.

We cut out a "window" and glass/tab in a vacuum bagged pane of no-bubbles glass under the transducer SFQ. That's a 3kw r509 chirp monster.

Wow. 3kw and chirp. Very cool. You guys are the best. One day when I win the lottery, I'm going to export one of your boats to CR and we are going to win all the tournaments here!

You could cook a fish under that sumbitch.

Don't know if it'll cook them but their hearing won't be the same afterward, it sure is loud when it fires!

Thanks for all the nice words everyone. we're all very proud of her and how well she came out! I'm now torn between which of our builds is my favorite, the 41 or the 63, a toss up. Flatsfactory, please stop by anytime, always glad to show off what we do.

This will probably be the last update, at least from this side of the pond. We've taken her back apart and have everything ready for the freight haulers to take her to the ship for the trip to her new home. Ronald and I will be going over to put everything back together and hopefully will get it done in time to go on her inaugural fishing trip. We're looking forward to filling up those big in-deck fish boxes!

Bill, one of the things I was most interested in was the relative performance between this boat and the 37' inboard. Do you have any cruising speed and fuel burn numbers for the two that you could share? Also would like to know top speed of each.

Boat is amazing! Just curious why you had to break her down, engines and all, for shipping. Need some pics of her on the ship in transit if possible.

Unfortunately I don't have final numbers for either yet modernimage, the 37 was hauled for the winter early before we could finalize wheel testing and we had to break down the 41 to meet a ship sailing schedule before the final (?) set of wheels got here.

Both boats cruised easily in the upper 30 knot range at around the same 1.2mpg total fuel burn. Right now the outboard version is several knots faster at WOT, we saw 47.5 knots both ways but were still slipping about 17% on stock Rev 4's, hopefully the Power Techs will improve that.

Because of transshipment theft concerns it was decided to ship below decks in a Ro-Ro. Dockwise and the other dedicated yacht transport services don't go anywhere near her new home so she has to go on a "regular" freighter. All the expensive parts are going in a locked container and the boat and tower shrink wrapped, has to fit under a 12' tall door.

That is really flying for a boat of that size, and with just triples no less. And fuel mileage seems excellent. Nice job!

That is way too pretty of a boat to ship on a Ro-Ro vessel. I understand that’s your only option but being in the Stevedoring business here in Galveston I see how some of the cargo is handled on occasion. It should be fine but it’s the “what ifs” that could happen. Good luck and beautiful boat👍🏼
