Just thought I'd share a few photos of my new Heron 18 I picked up over the weekend. Have already taken her out a few times and she runs fast, smooth, and dry. Had a chance to pole around a bit as well and poles really well, even though a stiff breeze. Almost done with the break-in and looking forward to getting her in the salt and on some fish.

Big thanks to Mel and Rose and the whole team over at Salt Marsh. They did an incredible job with communication and helping me build a badass boat. Happy to talk to anyone who wants a recommendation on the process and my experience with them.

What kinda speeds u gettin out of the Suzuki 90hp?
I am still working through the break-in period so haven't really hit it hard for too long. I was crusing at 32-34mph around 4500rpm. When I hit it full throttle I was hitting right at 40mph at 5500rpm but backed it down pretty quickly.
