I will probably be the proud owner of the first 35! Still a year away though. Doesn't look like i will have any problem moving my 31.

Phils father has been very ill and has required around the clock care. He remains sick still, however yesterday Phil did sneak out and run the boat for the first time. He certainly had plans of using the boat much more this spring but life gets in the way sometimes.

Anyhow, he ran a new set of props as well as a fully loaded boat. With full fuel and 1000# of ice in the forward boxes it ran 72. Before it was running about that speed but on a much much lighter load. I think he plans on posting a report and some pics shortly.

How did it run? Very curious to hear the account of loaded and rough water performance with twin verados.

Phils excellent with metal. A true craftsman.

We didn't take too many pics today. It was a very quick splash to make sure all the pumps worked, through hulls didn't leak and the engines ran. We know we are over propped. A quick wot gave 5500 with 21p rev 4s.

Boat looks great in white. Can't wait to hear how it runs with the right props. Try the Eco Enertias they are great all around and fantastic mpg.
