You DO realize that when you stop posting updates, a lot of us are going to be disappointed. 😉

PPF at the spot that gets messed up the most imo.

not sure if someone has mentioned this but get yourself a set of mud flaps for your truck, specially with it being lifted...they have ones that slide onto your hitch. (seeing your style google them for an idea and make your own) They will help save your trailer and boat from road hazards.

Awesome job on your project...Very cool!

Badass weekend. First time I ever took the boat on smooth water and wife loves it. Might be our new spot. Didn't really take pics a lot. Was too busy having fun.

Boat worked great. Bimini held up perfect. Got yelled at for going 75mph. ( I know, stupid)
Went solo in the morning at clocked 85mph. Told myself not to push it more cause I feel like I'm inexperienced. With time I guess.

Thank you for whoever and came up and said what's up. Glad you guys like the build.

Anyone selling a newer 21 Daytona hull? 🤣

Join the darkside brother. Put that bad ass 300 on a 21 Daytona and you will be in heaven. GREAT combo.

Long runs on smooth water are the absolute best. It's nice to see the boat getting wet, take any vids while underway?

No updates really. Just been driving and enjoying the damn thing.

One thing I did noticed going from the 20" mid to 15" was horrible hole shot. For the Lower river run it sucked so bad it drove me crazy. Thought having two extra passenger ls was the problem.

This weekend I took it out again and pulled the 1/2" holes off the prop. Making it 1" holes. Boom, problem solved. Along with the correct jack plate height, it helped a ton. Wifey and kid was probably annoyed of me launching so many times.



Pretty cool pic wifey took of Connor and I.

That thing looks right on water, beached, AND on the trailer.

Nice work bud!👍🏽

Glad you’re actually using and enjoying it. It IS the reason for all the time and effort.

What’s the price if someone wanted to buy it today lol
No price cause I can't afford the boat I want. So I'm sticking with this. Last weekend someone told me I should race the enduro so shit and giggles. Thinking about it. 🤣
