Did you ever figure out what transducer you where going to run? I would think something in the hull forward of the steps would be best.

Looking good. Were you able to make any runs and get some numbers? I'm curious how it performs and what props you end up with.
That T-Top looks a lot like the one on my Cobra.

Ran most of the afternoon.... The props are 23 pitch 4 blade power techs and the engines turn about 5100 rpm ( probably get away with 22 pitch ) Still need some seat time but the fuel burn averaged at 2.2 mpg running her fast. Trim needs to be tweaked at each speed but the numbers look strong.... with a combination of running hard, mid speeds and idling she got 2.2 mpg... once I find the sweet spot I'm hoping for 2.5 to 3 mpg...
