The motors are on and the boat tested on the water. The performance was amazing. I'm a believer in this hull design it was a dry ride and reaching speeds to 47 mph and I and sure well will find some more.

Sweet!  BEAUTIFUL boat!  47 mph?  Is that a new GA record?

Is this your first launch?  Now I've got two people to send swag to.  PM me your mailing address!

Thats awesome Scott.  Must have found some insurance?  If you post re: insurance maybe Brian can add it to the thread I started.   Insurance for these boats just should not be so difficult!  Did you get a survey?   I would be interested to see how the 300 feels compared to my 250.  It's impossible to tell in the photo, but I suspect I am Heavier.  The 250 Suzuki is no slouch.  Nice boat, quick build!

Thanks Brian and Todd, As far as insurance are home owners is covering it but once the survey is done I will start shopping around they aren't big on long ocean adventures. Y Marina did the install and test the boats. They were impressed with the boat handling and performance and I was happy with it as well. The tide was ripping out and we took it between the jetties  with 5 and 6 foot ebbing rollers , the boat handled incredible with no water splash on the windows. The 300 with 9.9 kicker is under 700lbs and they perform.
