    That's a bad ass freakin toon! What speed does it see with the 350?

    Not sure if you got the extended warranty on that motor or not, but I'd recommend getting it.. my father in law has one and apparently there is some design problem with them.

    Nice, I like the way you had the bimini striped to match the toon paint design.

    Man I love those twin Trifecta’s!!

    Super happy with our Manitou single 400 though. Had it out in the biggest water I’ve ever seen in Havasu (child’s play for some of you guys I’m sure) and it blew me away with how well it ran.

    Ya’ll have some sweet beer can boats!

    I’m loving those twins! They are just bad ass! I need to go for a ride on one some day!!!! Hint hint

    I don’t have any pics of my toon in the water, we usually float and I don’t take my phone in the drink with me... might have to get a h2o proof case or a bag of some sort.

    JR motors had Adrenaline do the polish and shark hide. Everyone says it’s a winter thing, So the dealer had the muscle to get it in /out during the summer....

    I also had the motor and paneling / railing ceramic coated after the AZ numbers got painted on, so much nicer it’s easy wipe down now. 30 minutes by myself for a good wipe down. The motor would get blasted with water spots and now it’s quick and easy. No chemicals or sprays

    This was a few years ago 2017 it was all figured in the boat cost when we ordered the boat, so I kinda forget. We had a few upgrades went from a 300 to a 350 and then did the Bimini and redid the bunks from fabric to plastic.

    Adrenaline does Sharkshide, but you have to book it pretty far out. Winter is definitely the best time. He has a lift to get the boat off the trailer. We used to get our's acid washed and touched up every year. Now, with the lift, it does not need to be done as much.

    Have to say, when I switched to a toon a couple years ago from a Howard sport deck I was a bit bummed that I gave up the fast boat for a toon. Now I could not be happier, I have family and friends with fast boats for a fix when needed.
    This 28 toon can handle any water Havi can throw at it and be very smooth while doing it. Top speed I have seen was 53, don’t go pinned very often. Heavily loaded I can cruise 40 with ease.
    Love the toon....

    I have had my 2016 Avalon Ambassador for 3 seasons now with a Merc 350 Verado. Pretty much has every option they were offering at the time and has been running perfect since day one. Thought it would be hard to switch from 100mph deck boats and V bottoms but the toon life is very nice on the water and much more family friendly all around. 20160702_190806_001.jpg 20160702_190817.jpg 20160702_190826.jpg 20160702_190845.jpg 20160705_085712.jpg 20160709_172750.jpg 20160730_170904.jpg 20160730_171013.jpg
