Agree on how high it is on the trailer. It must require a big draft!

What's the draft like 3 feet? These props are gonna get destroyed as the avg IO driver takes bigger chances with water depth. Compared to inboard drivers.

Not sure how an inferior "me too" product that isnt cheap competes. I took at look at the Moneterrey build a boat and it can get well above $100k.

that prop is gone the first time they try powerloading onto the trailer and forget to trim it up first.

How high does that swim platform sit up out of the water? I imagine that the water line is below the word "surf". That would make it impossible to climb on without a ladder sticking down or something

Why in the world would they use a cheap rip off of CC graphics? That's just tacky.

This is very true. The reverse I/O's work great in larger boats for performance and handling.
I think they will have big problems in smaller boats that don't always operate in deep water.

Yes, loading on a trailer will be dicey.

btw.....that's exactly why the trailer is so High......to get clearance for the I/O.

A lot of ramps will not be Deep enough to launch that boat.

no power launch at all - need a real long winch strap

The trailer has nice wheels...
As for the rest of it, well, I think that's all been covered.
