That’s correct. 97 was the first year offered. I believe mine was one of the first since this was Mikes boat. (Gene, owner of Howard’s son)Does this hull have the transom notch and delta pad? I know they switched in 97 but there isn’t much info about exactly when
I’ve always been a closed bow guy. I think they look better and ride better. I also wouldn’t mind doing some type of overnight trip on the water somewhere. That little bed is surprisingly comfortable.Looks incredible, Can’t wait to see how the flooring turns out. How do you like the closed deck vs open bow?
You're the second person to say that. LOL My friend said he is purposely not going to show his wife cause she would make him sell his boat.I saw you cruising it around this weekend. Good looking boat, even my picky wife said she wants one just like it.

This speaker set up blew my mind. The clarity and sound was unreal. I didn't even need to turn it up half way while cruising and my boat is loud. The old system I would have to max out while driving. I'm very impressed and this stereo is overkill.This thing is turning out so killer. Would love to hear how you like the audio setup. My Ultra23 interior is basically the same size and layout as the inside of this boat, and I need to upgrade speakers. Does it sound OK with all the speakers down low?
Gator is running me 1,800. That’s to do the entire floor, mid cabin and engine compartment. I’m not having them cut around the seat bases which would save me a little, I’m going right over the top of it. The engine bay will be done in all black with grey accent, that way if anything spills you won’t see it.wow, boat looks tits.
what did the gel/gator step set you back for the interior? also thinking about heading that route in the future.
Covid played a good role in the quickness. I had the boat a part when the virus hit and everyone didn’t have work, so I gave them work! Knowing people in the industry helped too.damn, in the hatch too? What budget? [emoji23]
Generally speaking, this overhaul seemed to get done really quick. I can’t wait to see the final product. [emoji1303]

Thanks for the info. I had a Merc lab 28 on my Howard Bullett with a Teague 525 and went down to a lab 27 and it made a decent difference. It came on plane quicker and was able to rpm better on the top end. I think at 3000 it was going 46-47 mph which I thought was nice. I believe you have a 496 with a 4-1/4 inch stroke so your set up should make more torque down low so maybe you can swing a bigger prop?
