    David,

    We get a race put together, I will build one of these to run. Its a purpose built race boat but very effective in a lot of conditions. Always surprised that these don't sell faster.

    Any idea on the weight as it sits? Would a 200xs just be way too little power?

    Would be cool if they had that class here.

    Is this you Glenn? I bought the 300xs off this boat.
    Stupid question...does the trailer come with it?
    Man, this really looks like a fun ride at a great deal.
    Thanks

    It is a well thought out piece and probably hundreds of hours in it . Well documented as well with only 400 pics . I believe you have a bunch of good men well versed in the marine go fast industry to have a finished this as it is . I am or can' buy this sir but someone is going to get a great hull rigged well at a bargain at 25 grand . Just importing it is a huge step forward for someone . It' a work of art sir . A lot of pride in the build up and thanks for sharing . Beautifull .GLWTS. Its a steal .

    It’s a beautiful boat. I owe almost all of the credit to my buddies Nick and Quinton at Strongback Manufacturing. They built a beautiful trailer for it as well as worked tirelessly and re-rigged it for me to fix all the half ass work that was done by another shop previously with zip ties, etc, as well as fully detailing it and having some odd and ends cleaned up on the interior as a surprise for me, was a humbling and emotional experience when I received it back

    It was honestly one of the most gratifying times in my personal life buying and building this thing. I absolutely have been mental over it for 4 years, but the winters are too long and summers to short, paired with a job that keeps my on road for 100 days a year it’s a shame to see it sit.

    If it doesnt sell by February I’m going to buy a 300r with wing plate, digital throttle and 1.60 swept skeg sporty and rigg it

    It looks like it all that and the story behind it is humbling - good friends are developed over good relationships .So your a solid guy .I apologize for not being the buyer and ranting on about it -like I stated just to get it here is a bonus for the next guy . And the build tech is very thought out - drilled for lightening - very nicely rigged . Then there is the trailer - It' a steal - and not been pounded on from years of usage .
