1:1 Boat

Awhile back someone asked me what the real boat looked like underway. I found a pic of my Dad driving it with my 1952 Mercury KG-7H Hurricane on it. This was the first motor I ran on the boat when I got it. It did about 45-48 mph with that motor. It wasn't a bad set-up but the boat really came alive when I put a 1980 Mercury 25SS on it and it would nudge 60mph. The boat really likes to fly and doesn't pack enough air under it to float it until it hits the mid 50s. It's kinda like riding an elevator - your gut gets that sinking feeling as the boat just lifts up about 6-inches off the water and just hangs.
