I come from a racing background and understand the process, and have been involved and built a few boats in my time. With a superior build as this Cayo, light in construction and materials and methods used..this boat should be right at the 70mph mark. In my book..First boat just means more trial and error...and if the manufacturer is happy with such results so be it. I appreciate the fact that the Manufacturer is sharing his build process and numbers. I am comparing all this to the my 27 Compmillennia which is a larger boat with somewhat similar build techniques..different material used and less power that went 60 with Merc 150's. That was the reason for my comment.

Any manufacturer I have been involved with or had someone build a boat for me.. we ran jack plates, multiple props after we got our base line. Another option is Blueprinting a hull or at least having it checked is another variable for speed increases. I have gone as far as having our outdrives (#6) blueprinted which gained another 6mph on my 40 Skater. I am older and hopefully a little wiser and now into outboards..so I imagine that will be the next thing coming.
Its all about the prop. The more pitch you can spin (and the more efficiently you spin it) the faster you will go. All that stuff either lets the motor spin a higher pitch prop or reduces prop slip.

Its the latest trend. Gotta build off the hybrid and cat hype while the getting is good.

I just imagined an inexperienced boater running into a sand bar at 66mph. Weeeeeeeeeee!

There are several 60+ mph bay boats already on the market that inexperienced boaters can use to hit sandbars.

Again..I understand all that...point taken. There are other avenues to try or test to gain speed..I believe there is 2 maybe 3 more mph in that boat with a different prop, blades and setting. There is always more room for improvement and this was Cayo's first run...which was excellent. This motor also gives you an additional 200 rpms, which is different than the one tested.

They should get Ken from prop gods involved. I’m sure he would be able to fine tune it for them.

No sense in fine tuning the shell of a boat. Wait for #1 to be finished then test. This was just a preliminary run

Will this boat be ready for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this fall? I'm shopping around for a hybrid boat this size and I'd love to see it in person.

I dont think JB is going to take it to FLIBS. He has a ton of orders already and wants to concentrate on getting the orders he already has filled before he goes to shows trying to sell more.

Beautiful boat! Kinda looks like Berky's bottom and shear on the 40?

Performance in 3 feet every 6 seconds is what will tell.

Too spread apart. Need a lower ratio then 1:2.

Right now in Miami we got 2.5 feet every 4 according to windfinder.

See if she can really handle those 15knot eastern winds

That was my point when I questioned Savage2extreme when he said they were getting more props to test. Why test a shell? So you can say that 60% of the boat went 70mph? Doesn't make sense to me.

By the time they add the inner liner, cap, rigging, electronics, stereo, a little more fuel and a t-top, I don't think they are going to be over propped.so throwing a few hundred dollars at a new set of props that will likely only be needed this one time is crazy.

Because you'll still need multiple props to test after everything is installed. You get more props for what you think will work on the finished boat. And if you order them now, you have them when you are ready instead of waiting again.

Y'all read a lot into stuff that isn't actually said. These guys have thought out the process pretty dang well from what I've seen. They released drawings early, took a bunch of feedback and incorporated it before building the molds. I don't expect them to do a bunch of testing and claiming the boat to be dialed in before everything gets installed.
