Any chance of getting some video showing all the features of the boat? Maybe some drone footage of it running at slow speeds? Too much?

End of May a 3 day all hands infusion job off site. Might drag out the 22 mold for my frugal New England family friend. What I gross in a year he does in less than a week. Building 22's, that financial status is not likely to change :-)

So what was the top speed? I read rumors of over 100.

I second the request for a bunch of photos and maybe a video of the entire boat and all its' features, before it gets shipped out to the customer. Please!!!

Thank You Jim.

Twin 300's?? Fake news!
Maybe one 300R......75 mph is not good for you?

Exactly. Why be 100 miles out in two hours when you can be 150!!! You have to go where others cant or wont go to get the big fish!

I wonder if a quad 300 Merc V8 would get .8 mpg full fish load. And still be able to cruise at 55 @4500 rpm.

So far economy has always been well over 1 mpg at cruise. Not fake news I believe, but the real numbers should be available shortly.
My faithful EX has been towing the quad all over town but the weight of two extra motors tow limited me out a bit so we contracted with real professionals for the delivery.

Do we get a final weight as she sits on the trailer. Looks great! New owner will love her, think a lot of us here on THT are a bit jealous

Just in principle the owner should have insisted on a quad axle float on trailer. That is a bad boy! Thanks for sharing

I'd bet the trailer weighs less with the boat on it than it does empty!
