    Thanks for the compliment C Runner. It really is a super nice, very clean, skinny water boat. I hate to sell it, but need the money for an up coming trip and repairing my bay boat.

    Hey Jay,

    Here is some more info on the boat.

    25 mph is cruising speed and 30 mph is top speed (I'm 6'1" 275lbs and my fishing buddy is about 230 lbs.)  Might be faster with skinny people.  I find it to run about 3 mph slower in fresh water.... weird but true, might be the buoyancy, floats better in salt and less boat is in the water at top speed. The motor has a dole fin type stabilizer on it since I purchased it. I have never tried to take it off cause I am happy with the performance. Some friends have told me it would run better without it, but have not felt the need to try it.

    I was told it floats in 4-5 inches when I bought it, I have never measured it, but I get into real skinny water with it and can easily get up on tailing reds. 

    Hull length 16'4" not including motor
    Beam is 4'6"
    At seat it is 4'3"
    Center of poling platform 3'10"
    Transom 3'4"
    13" of freeboard
    It has a sharp V bow that flares into a flat bottom
    1 chine that is 2" and is found 4" from the outside edge

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you for all the information all my questions were answered. im 6'1 275 and my fiishing buddy goes at about 230 so our numbers should be about the same and thats plenty fast for me. Still pondering will give u a call if still available once I figure it out

    thanks again
    Jay

    Jay, You are welcome. Yeah I agree, 30 is plenty fast. It does not feel very fast when you are on a bigger boat, high off of the water, but it feels like you are flying when you are just inches away from the surface of the water.

    Tom, I just got back home today and measured the over all length on the trailer for someone else. It is 18' 11" with the trailer collapsed, from the front of the winch mast to the back of the cowling. Hope it fits.

    Does it have a built in tank or a remote? I live in Atlanta.. Would you be willing to meet half way?

    It has two remote tanks in the forward compartment.  One tank is 6 gallons and the other is 3.  I also re-did the fuel hose and pump ball when I re-did the wiring.  I will do lots of thinking about meeting half way.

    I don't know who makes the ones on my boat. The boat came that way. There is a similar aftermarket one made by SSI that sells for $110 -$125 at West marine. Those are just a little smaller than mine.
