There are some very specific targets in mind; however, I am keeping them close to the vest at this point...no need to disappoint or be unrealistic. Do I believe 50 is possible...yes.

The bottom mods are simple but propritary...for the project to work and be something people would want to buy I need to keep some things as a trade secret for now. If this doesnt work out, then I'll be more than happy to spill it all.

Mike...the trade secret is already out.

Mike is going to WAX the bottom of the boat and run it down hill
He will probably get 70 MPH + that way

Sorry to let the cat out of the bag. I know that has never been tried before.

I remember the story of the Dutch folks. The had planned on going to the Sun in a Rocket ship. When asked how they where planning on doing that. They said "Where going at night"

Looks AWESOME

I've got lots of those ideas if anyone wants them.

I have to agree about the snaps. That was the first thing I noticed that distracted me from an otherwise BEAUTIFUL ride! I'm curious, how much for this beauty when it is all done?

Mike I applaud you for your innovation and thinking outside of the box. The 197, while a nice boat, has been the same boat essentially since 2002. I think it's pretty cool you are trying to mix things up a bit with this model. 50+ with an MCX will certainly pique the interest of the footin crowd. Keep us tuned in and best wishes on this venture!

Thanks, and thank you to everyone for the feedback. Keep it coming, let me know what you would like to see in package like this. Keep in mind this would be a "tuner" version, and as such the price will be driven by the performance/expectations.

I think there is a place for it as long as you don't start putting Jegs stickers on it. That of course has it's market but you'd need to paint the boat John Deere Green at that point.
