Great honest review . Would have turned off 99% of us if you would have started with the 45 MPH crap.
Any idea when we will know price and build times ?

You should get one......it will probably blow all your other monos away and extend your fishing career due to less body fatigue

Now don't be a build tease. Your last build thread was (still is) epic. Leaned (still learning) a lot from your posts. Another build thread would be most excellent.

BTW, I'm guessing your comments about the Merc tests pretty much sums up where you stand on the engine issues on your current CC? Guess I'm not surprised.

Good luck fishing south of the border.

4 engine flush system is the next build tip

Looking forward to seeing your experience with hull #2, as you are an experienced Invincible 42' owner, it should be a wonderful source for a contrast and compare. Slay them down Mexico way.

That set of pictures makes it look better IMO, though I still wish they would've stuck with a more similar shearline to their mono hulls.

Slap a better looking hardtop on that thing, and I could dig it.

very Impressive. It gets better looking every day. It started out kinda like the ugly girl at the bar, the more you drink & look at her the better she looks.

I absolutely love the boats looks. I think that the two tone gelcoat needs to be adjusted though. They way it sweeps up the bow plays tricks on your eyes and messes with the lines of the boat. Keep it a solid color, or keep the two tone straight with the waterline.

Congrats team Invincible!

I know looks are subjective, but I disagree. I think it looks great, plus the divide between colors follows the chine. I don't think it would look as good straight across. (That's just me though)

It's not that it looks bad it just doesn't look good, it is just so bland. Maybe they can do I little work with a t top where the metal work matches the boat better but there is almost nothing to match because there are not identifiable design features.

It is no different than any other mono hull two tone paint job. If it were in a straight line along the waterline it would just look like bottom paint. I think it looks great.

IMO the lines on the boat are awesome. They are much more subtle than the broken shear, high bow of invincible vee hulls. At certain angles you can really appreciate the sweeping curve of the shearline that appears to slightly curve down at the bow. It just looks slick, not boxy to me but ymmv.
