That 32.5 mph at 1.6 will make a comfy cruise.

Default Twin vee 31

I've fished the TV31, and reached out to my buddy who owns that boat. He cruises 36-38mph running 4500rpm burning 1.6 mpg. His props are the power tech OFX3'S 3X15.25X21. depending on how loaded the boat is and seas, best he's seen is 56mph. I reached out to Dave with this info a lil too late for him to test. These props performed best in the TV31 (7 sets of props) which these hulls are similar. Also, Suzuki 300s rpm range are upward 6300? So more testing will get better results. Just my thoughts and opinion.

I think Dave was trying to get another set of props to test out. I dont think he was able to get them in time. Its a good starting point and we will see if it gets improved or not.

Bait wells are 40 gallons each and glassed in after the transoms completed. Itís raised above the gunnel to increased capacity. The reason its off the deck is to access the bilge through the floor hatches. You canít see in the photos, but it follows the shape of the transom, so itís not straight up and down.

I don't see a radar antenna on your hard top. Are you not getting one, or has it just not been installed yet?

That is a nice looking boat. Buddy of mine said one just like it pulled up next to him when he was fishing on a hard bottom area on the hook. After 30 minutes of drift fishing next to my buddy, the boat dropped off a diver who proceeded to spearfish underneath my bud’s anchored boat as indicated by the bubbles.. My buddy had 4 kids on the boat who all now have a very negative opinion of divers and the owner of said boat. I assume it was not you, as you seem like a decent feller and not the type of person who would do that. Again, nice boat.

Oh man.... I dont think I'm going to be able to put such quality fish into the boat within 1 day of owning her.

Congrats!

What they need is a tag permit for Jewfish in your area.
