I really like the colors on this. I was getting tired of the reds and blues.

So what's the overall thinking behind the design of the boat. It looks like they literally took a V and added from wings so to speak. Does it actually increase lift and get the boat out of the water more like a cat? Or was there some other reason for the desing like more open bow space? I saw more of these on the water this year than anytime before and they definitely caught my eye.

Our Designer Gary Ferguson with our race proven step V bottoms added air entrapment to the bow to make the hull lift , drivers like Bob Teague &

Greg shoemaker etc. all said that the boat drive like a Cat & handles even better, note the increased popularity on the lake today :tbi

It's about time a builder stepped outside the box and built something different!

Here are a couple more pictures She is now in the rig shop waiting for a Mercury 502 MAG HO. This boat will be equipped with full hydraulic steering. With the stock 430 HP 502 this boat is still one of the best family sport boats as it still comes on plane almost instantly and stays flat all the time so tubing and wake boarding are a breeze even with a boat load of people.

I took a buddy to this years Pomona show and he loved these things.... they are such a departure from what we're accustomed to seeing... for me it looks like a hammerhead shark from the front... the things seem like a vee and a deck had puppies ha.... very purposeful design and man are they spacious.
