Shake Down Tuna Trip
« on: August 06, 2022, 02:55:22 PM »
Took Izzy J out on her first Tuna trip. We went out of Newport 55 miles chasing Albacore, ended up with 16. We did better than most that day. What a blast getting blood on the deck. I was amazed how well we kept up with the heavy boats without pounding. Love my twins:) So impressed with the design of these hulls. I've owned a Grady Marlin 300 for 3 years so I know the difference. I'll take my Kodiak any day hands down all while getting better than twice the MPG...Thanks Brian

Thanks for letting me do sea trials and shakedown with your boat too ... what a Cadillac!!  Drives like a dream ... lifts onto plane easily, like an elevator ... doesn't care about kind of chop you cruise through :D :D :D   Sweeet boat!  Or is yours a SHIP?  LOL...

Love the blood on the deck!  Great job on the boat...  The finish is outstanding and is a high bar.
