No problem, what power?

We went with 700's. The 860's sound like a cool package, but the mid-range drivability makes this package a disappointment. That comes directly from Pete. The 1100's are just too far out of $$$ reach. Going back again, June 3 to discuss interior configuration and paint.

Just read where the Fountain's 28 flat deck is running 119 with the 1.75 lowers. Your wider/lighter hull should be a rocket then.

Like your sign-on says...precisiondetails, I got the 6 and 9 fouled up. Still bodes well for getreal's set up.

I've been a little "off track " this year. My daughter has a medical issue going on and its been taking up a lot of my time.
I'm still working on the boat (machining parts). Interiour is done. I ordered the motors (last) September 1st. Last week I got word they will be shipping November 30th.

Not to side track my own thread but my 388 is out of the mold.

Awesome, are you doing the low-pro cut? Assuming another O/B boat?

Any updates on both incredible builds?
More importantly, I hope your daughter is doing MUCH better.

Although I'd love to see both projects up and running...really hope things go better on the daughter front. Looks like you have the boat stuff figured out.

No, being "retired and single" keeps getting in the way. LOL
I'm back at my shop now, getting a few projects done first.
I did get the motors. I found (2) 300 X's, 15" mids with 15 hours. and (2) brand new powerheads.

Livin' the dream brother! Please put those 300x's on, if only for pictures and sound...=)

Hope your daughter is hanging in there.

Pretty sure this hull has been done for a couple years.

Sold the 36 Daytona.
The CC/deck is a 37' Warlock (WPM Warrior).

Know you had it sold, but did you get the mcob done for them? I know what boat I’ll be keeping my eyes pealed for 🔭🔭 this summer as well 🤣😍.

And i was close i thought it too was a 36’r. I truly believe that when you do that one i will have to make at minimum weekly trips to take pics and keep an updated build thread going for you. If you only do half the stuff you plan it’ll be ridiculously insane!

I know there is a red carbon kevlar Schiada in Theresa well. The pics of it made an appearance in some other thread. I’ve had dreams of buying that hull and sending it to @BoostPower for the magical touch. If only my budget came close to my imagination. I’m sure everything has a price, but I wouldn’t sell that hull if I were him either.
