I was laughing my ass off when I heard the beebing I called the dealer the first time(second as well because I forgot)
You can also shut them off on your monitor follow the prompts but only for the time the key is on. It will remind you each time you restart till you follow the 3 time key procedure

Loaded with 1,860 lbs of fuel, 3,860 lbs of ice, 920lbs of water, and 615 lbs of people/gear she hits 70 and cruises nice at 48.

Bill has hit a home run with this hull as she will carry a load very well and with the extremely deep deadrise I will actually be able to run her like she was designed to do most of the time.
Incredible numbers, congratulations on one amazing cat!

I saw you guys at Haulover launching that bad boy yesterday while I was loading a boat. This is definitely one of those 'pics don't do it justice' situations. Looks like you could tourney fish it one day, poker run the next and then strap on some .50 cals and go to war the following day.

I wish there was a 24' hybrid cat that had these lines and matching performance.

14" draft, twin 150s, looks like this, and a bow low enough for a trolling motor would hit my sweet spot.

An interphase cable had to be updated.

Wow! That's highly impressive. I can't wait to see all the pictures after a few hulls are completed. This thing is a beast.

Keiths boat cleaned up really nicely. Here you can see his famous hose rack as well as the finished bolsters.

8 Days now in the high 80's low 90's and still more ice than most guys take fishing.
I am very impressed considering they are above deck with black/gray upholstery on top.

I'd be a little embarrassed to show off ice that had been in my boat eight days without a hint of red...

Awesome boat, loved watching this thread. That's really impressive!

I finally got the electronics and my Coast Guard certification. I have been able to go fishing a couple times. The boat has performed excellent and is awesome on the drift, no rocking, just moves up and down. It is crazy how stable it is, makes gutting and packing fish a lot easier. The last trip was an overnighter to the Middlegrounds totaling 287 miles, key on to key off was a hair over .9 mpg, running 48mph out once I cleared the fog and 55mph in. It loves a following sea and eats a head sea, very dry in a beam sea.
