Especially when it could potentially void the warranty! (Kinda world ending!)

David Wade Marine, did you log off your business account and log on this one to stir the pot?

LOL, If I was David Wade Marine I would be out trolling for dolphin, not trolling The Hull Truth.

Good information to share there. I for one didn’t know the new Mercury’s require AGM batteries.

btw those batteries were borrowed from a skiffs trolling motor so that they could trim the motors.

This thing is huge! Beautiful lines. Really looking forward to seeing it come together. Has a lot of bow flair and great lines. Id like a half tower, twin 300 Merc V8, jackplates, sign me up!

Damn that's pretty. I'll take one with the small console currently on there and a basic leaning post. Gimme all the floor space! I want to be able to walk from one end to the other without having to turn sideways.

Thanks for the scoop and new photos.

Very nice and the color looks good too. The Mercs with their odd angles seem to blend in with the hull.

Awesome! 21p props I guess they are expecting mid 60s? You gonna hang around and watch it run?

I was hoping they were going to run it on the lake, but I guess they are headed to the saltwater to film a video and do some running.

Cant remember the gear ratio, but if it is 1.75 then 21 pitch would put it a little over 60. Anywhere from 60-65 if they rev up high

1.85:1 for the 4 stroke 225

64 with no slip at 6000 rpm

I believe it will be faster than that...????? We hit 60 with the wrong props and had room to go on my 27 x 8'9" Compmillennia with a pair of Merc 150's..very light but including the way I set it up with the 2 leaning posts...but without a top.
