    If you need a boat to run, call me. I can come up with something for you to use that will make you smile.

    Hoping to make this one. Finally took the Venus out for the first time yesterday. Put in at Fanning and ran up to Rock Bluff and back. I'll be sure to have her cleaned up for March.

    Being it was my first time in the seat, I had it up to 68mph, at just under 6200rpm with my Hill Marine 28p chopper. We didn't put in till about 2:45pm, so not a whole lot of time. I did get to jump in the water at Rock Bluff to snap a few pictures.

    So where is your peak HP ?

    Where Is the prop shaft height?

    Have someone on shore take a picture while you make a top speed pass by your self.

    Have you ever put a straight edge on the pad, last 4 feet.

    something is wrong you should be in the eights

    my Venus's were V bottoms, not familiar with that hull design

    I remember one of my Streams came with a major lip at rear of pad, I always flipped my new boats over and trued the pad

    area and sharpen 90 degree edges sharp

    Thanks Joe. Very nice offer. I sold most all my boating stuff but just wasn't really ready to quit boating so I bought a bass boat. It's funny cuz I took it out first time and ran 72 with it but felt like I was going 30. Wrong prop and a ton of weight. Used to those 500 lb. with many horse boats that would easily hit tripple digits. I'll get used to it in time but most likely what is going to happen is another hotrod. Some habits linger.

    NICE!! It was just me and my cousin putting in for a late afternoon run so no time to really get any pictures from the shore. Me and my wife really want to get a place somewhere down there around Old Town close to Fanning. Thanks for the picture man that was perfect!

    Hope to be there for the March run. I backed out a few weeks back with the rain and cold. Hard to drive 9 hours for non-Fla weather. Looks like a lot of folks stayed the course and had a good time. Hoping for some warmth in March.
