    LSA engine, Hamilton 212 and UHMW sounds sweet to me.

    Good question, if it's going to a dealer I'd love to know which one.

    That is a beautiful boat. Very nice. Have you taken in out yet? What's the performance like?

    Those last two shots are just ugly! Needs to be in the water :-) Maybe even some GoPro shots as well!

    Fair enough on the last two pics😁 put about 5 hours on it today, weather was horrible for pics and videos just rained non stop. Boat is a runner for sure, very impressed with the handling. Personally handles better than any other jetboat I've been in, just tracks like its on rails with zero roll even in hard corners at 40-50mph...will stay on step and glide through 3-4" of water at 24-2500 rpm. Speed we hit 55.2mph on the gps with two guys and full of fuel at 80% throttle on the digital guage.

    Excuses, excuses...wanna see this puppy even in the rain :-) and in the fog. Looks like you got a winner! GoPro has a waterproof cover! Hope you get the chance to get some pics before the season ends.

    With the exchange these days, this works out to be a good deal for you folks.
