Yes, I drive by Cobia and I think General Motors and then look across the street at Pursuit and think Microsoft. Hundreds of people all working fast and hard and like ants they all know what their job is. Both are super clean considering the materials they are working with. Cobia is about to build a mega factory a few miles away.

I wouldn't be surprised if the reason this thread died is because things got stalled by the storm...

That’s what I thought. Hopefully they will last there. Nice ride.

I think Ameracat has had some growing pains and hopefully these problems have been worked out and certainly it is far easier to maintain control in an organized facility.

For those interested. Still don’t have right props on boat, running 22x16. Still hitting rev limiters pretty easy. Max 54 mph, cruise at 24-34 mph between 1.7-1.4 mpg. I think this will improve a bit. Boat is solid. Coming from a contender it’s sorta like going from a corvette to a Lincoln. Ride is super smooth and my back and knees are loving it.
