Wind was only blowing 5mph most of the show from what I heard.

This thread has 1781 posts so far, if I would have taken a ride I would have shared some observations. I guess maybe no tht’ers took a ride?

Really curious what the top end and cruise numbers were with 3-4 guys and the t-top.
I contacted Ryan for a sea trial a few days before the show. Wanted to have my own unbiased opinion on the boat but I never heard back from him.

I didn't take it in a bad way. I figure with all the hype the boat has my message must have slipped through the cracks.

I don’t have enough information to spill the beans here and start a shit storm. We’ll see what comes out eventually.

To be fair. When I saw them at Miami, looked like the builder was hanging out with his sons. Not sure if anyone took any rides. I thought I read they did a photo shoot also.

They had a presence without having to be in the show. Maybe alittle victory vacation for finishing the boat.

I dont think it's fair to jump to the conclusion that the boat doesn't ride well because nobody has commented on tht

That at is fair, maybe who ever commented in the thread that they were taking to boat down for sea trials was wrong, and it was more for the photo shoot.

By no means was my “lack of information” a conclusion about the ride/efficiency/layout/fit-form-function of this sweet ass sled. I know why my walk-thru appointment was cancelled. Will potentially make a trip to Tampa go try again soon.

We were getting 2-2.4mpg from 42-46mph when we were loaded down with 3 200+ lb guys, both livewells full (74 gallons) 150+lbs of camera gear, 140 gallons of fuel, helium tank, bean bags, rods, tackle, ice, drinks, food, and your basic safety equipment. We’ll get that a tad better with the right props too. Going to lake X in April to prop it out. Their guess is back up in the high 70’s after running 74.7 at only 56-5700 rpms.

That's from JB I assume? What RPMs were 42-46 mph?
