Default Competition 25 ForeFishin' Build Summary

I wanted to share the great experience and results of my recently completed build of my new Competition 25. I can not say enough about the job done by Manny, Mario and the Competition Team along with all the others who had a hand in making my vision get to completion. Along with the Competition team I went with several custom options and outside vendors on my build. All parties worked with me every step of the way, were patient, and went outside the box to get things done.
Special thanks to Brian at Sarasota Line-X who used his coatings on everything I could think of from the gas/water tanks to all pipework, rod holders, cup holders, footrest, backrests, bench frames, rocket launchers, you name it......I think the only metal items we left uncoated were the pop up cleats, nav lights and gas/water caps! (Bracket I opted for custom paint to match the boat and engine instead of Line-X). Brian arranged for multiple pickups and transports of materials from Hialeah to Sarasota and back.
Julio Fuentes @ IDIA Tech came through big time to make me a custom carbon fiber switch panel, custom engraved, backlit, Bocatech resettable switches. He also made a matching carbon fiber dash for the backing of the electronics box and hydro dipped carbon fiber Garmin screen cover.....and of course I went with the new carbon fiber Edson wheel to round things out!
Chelsea at Deep Blue Marine made an awesome custom bait table including engraved boat name, storage drawers. we had custom pipes welded up and line-x coated to mount bracket into zero degree rod holders on the transom with enough room to still open transom live well lid.

Some highlights and options of my build:
Whisper Gray hull color with white cap and liner
Single 300HP Yamaha 300HP custom painted whisper gray and white to match boat
Custom painted bracket whisper gray and white to match boat
Hardtop with underside painted whisper gray, top side white non skid. 5 piece eisenglass set including wings
Console, leaning post live well and coffin box painted whisper gray
100 gallon fuel tank to make room for in floor live well in front of console
360 degree bolsters and upholstery done with gray diamond stitching
Split console door
Coffin Box with backrest
Fold down, removable transom bench seat
30 gallon fresh water
Saltwater washdown
Electronics box with removable plexiglass panel
Storage compartments in transom, sides of leaning post and glove box in console below switch panel
White rub rail

Electronics:
Garmin 7616xsv
GT51 thru hull pair transducers for side view, chirp, etc
Garmin Fantom 18 Radar
Garmin VHF 110
Fusion RA70N
2 pairs JL 7.7
1 pair JL 8.8 upfront
JL M800 amp bridged to power all 6 channels
Garmin Reactor 40 autopilot with 1.2L pump
2 battery setup


I picked up the boat and drove straight down to Islamorada for a week breaking in the boat and I was throughly blown away by the ride quality, power and everything about the boat. The boat handled everything from 3-4s with 15kt winds on a 20 mile run to the humps to cruising the intracoastal for the ride down. The boat cuts through the rough stuff like a knife and doesn't bang at all, very soft entry. we literally had to try and make it hit hard. top end right around 50 and with a moderate load 3500 RPM, 30 mph, 3.1mpg cruise, but let me tell you at that speed you feel like you are standing still, the boat really wants to run faster.

Beautiful! Love the color combos. I'm doing similar on my Whitewater build. I'll accent the whisper grey with black, rather than white.
