I could be wrong, can I get a pic of the rear side of the boat at the transom with a tape measure on it? It might just be an optical illusion.
It looked like that to me as well. The logo is almost in the water when standing still. Only time will tell.

The boat floats shallow. When I test road it. I brought it up onto a flat to see if it would work for me. We had 5 guys on boat. The boat floats shallow. Boat is a game changer.

Just to update those that were asking about draft in full fishing mode.

From the owners mouth, or in this case, Instagram account,

light load 14 3/4” and full tournament load (74 gallon in transom livewells full, ice, gear, 200 gallons of fuel, and 3 guys just under 17”) that’s with the twin merc 300Rs. Lighter/ less HP motors less draft

they got the demo wrapped to start tournament season in FL. Looks purdy good. Staying very tight lipped about the first few boats. 3 weeks and it will be at king of the beach and the weekend after that will be in Venice LA.

Believe they have three or four hulls out of the mold so I'd think we should be seeing more soon. They also have a really nice YF 24 for sale so I'd assume that boat is being sold for an individual who's new boat must be close to completed. It also looks like they are hiring so likely getting ready to ramp up production.

Sat on the boat for an hour yesterday while at the Suncoast Kingfish Classic. Looking real good! Can't wait to get mine!

Quick question. I was watching one of my buddies IG story and it looked like the 2 transom wells over flow out the well through a channel and onto the deck and out the boat. Is that the main overflow for the well or are there drains high up in the wells also? Beautiful boat guys can’t wait to see it.

Since I know I’m not explaining myself correctly here is a picture and I circled the channel I’m refering to. Now that I think about it it might just be an extra overflow when the well gets pressurized.

its a pressurized live well meaning the pumps outrun the drains in the livewell. Keeps the baits from getting banged around by air space in the livewell. Isn't this how your boat is setup?

a 31 contender drafts 1’6” so is that a hibread bay boat as well?

Yes it is. Do you have any pictures of the inside of the well? Looks like a killer setup.

Similar live well lid/gutter as a Fountain 38.

You have to keep in mind 17" with 300s and loaded down is not bad. My Canyon Bay loaded down probably does 16" with full everything. Light she floats in 14" and that's plenty.

Your t-craft loaded down I'm sure is over 12" as well.

but can we assume the overflow water is not spraying the motor cowlings when you are running creating wind?
