Really? Thought Yamalube was the best. I’m guessing Pennzoil the same thing and cheaper then?

Cheaper and runs cleaner. Your plugs will thank you. Get the semi-synthetic from Walmart

I'm confused about your first sentence... "just kidding, I wish!" What is that about? Also, that seems like a score for $5000! Did I read that right?

Seems like a lot of boat for the money, nicely done! Really like the lines. Splash it and go fishing.

My original thread title was “First boat...Freeman/Yellowfin?” Haha clickbait so mods changed it.

Friend of mine had one. It's very similar to whitewater rampone etc. It rose very well for the size. He had twin yanaha 250 OX on a bracket with a closed transom. I still see it around.

How can I tell? I read a little bit on difference. The gunwale top part extends a bit then walls come up underneath but they are separate.

Tested it out last night! Everything went good! Definitely rides like a big boat, would be nice with twins on it.

Was able to do 34kts according to gps. I dont have a tach, so need to buy one and test if its propped right. Other than that would take the waves nice and actually not too wet!

Sounds good ! Happy it’s working out for you!
That sounds right for that setup , might be able to gain here and there playing with different props . Once you have the tach figured out for proper rpm on that engine.
They are good solid riding boats .

The bimini top was driving me crazy. Had to bring it up and down every time I would trailer it. Found a good deal on this t-top and bought it. It actually fits like a glove, just need to modify front bracket a bit.

Supposedly it came off a Contender. Super beefy! Before I bought it, I actually thought it would look too big, but after putting it on boat I think it looks good. Need to get a new canvas for it, any suggestions?

Man like I said before great looking hull, you absolutely stole it. T-top totally changes it, keep us up on the progress!

Thanks! What do you guys think of the bow rail? At first I wanted to remove it for aesthetic reasons, but then when I'm out on the water it’s very practical when I'm trying to pick up anchor, etc.

Boat might look a little cleaner and more current and racy without it but with that being said if it was mine I would probably just leave it, doesnt look bad at all and you wont have to fix fiberglass and holes on the cap. The t-top totally changes the lines of the boat to the good and It's not one of those goofy three foot tall bow rails and yes it definitely is useful at times especially when its sloppy and trying to pull anchor, etc. Totally envious of the deal you got for a great looking hull of that size. Of course everyone has opinions. Good deal!
