Waterlogged, have you put the Boat Buddy back on? If so, please post a picture of the fit against the front V. I'm curious how your boat rested with the BB.

I'm pretty sure I'm running the stock prop, and at WOT I can go about 41. By "cruising speed" I meant the speed that the engine can run for an hour or more. 28 mph seems pretty comfortable for both...

My '85 said the max cruise speed was at 3600 rpm, which was 36 mph. This was not possible with any chop/wakes at all. I cruised at about 20 with that boat.

My X1 is not near as fast or quick as that...

Mine has worked great on my X-1. No issues with marking, and it has been a nice upgrade over the roller I had before. We always back the trailer in until the tops of the fenders are just out of the...

That is actually a very good question. I would think if it was a salt water series they would point that out in the ad, and it would be sitting on a galvanized trailer rather than painted.

My guess...

That is a good looking boat. One question... How do you dock on the port (left) side? I've had an inboard for almost 30 years and I doubt I could maneuver the left side of my boat up against a pier.

This article indicates that there were 4 people on the boat, ages 15-16, that day. Doesn't come right out and say the driver was a teenager, but it is very clearly implied. I'm very sad for all...

Is that trailer missing the metal bar that goes over the bow eye?

There used to be some barefoot suits that were CG approved, but I could find any with a quick Google search. Are you supposed to wear a life jacket under a dry suit?

I had my '85 for 24 years without even a depth finder and never hit a thing. The trick is to watch the shoreline. If you see trees in the water along the shoreline, don't hug that shoreline. If you...

As an aside, having a "smart phone" makes me even more afraid of the...
