Well I had to drag this thread back up.  I decided to slap this thing together and get it wet.  Wanted to see if I would like a boat this big. 

 I will admit, I hate the OB !!! It sounds gay, smells terrible, and is a pig out of the hole. But it did run good and has lots of power once its on plane. 

 But I love this hull !!!!!  It rides sooooooooo nice.  And feels realy light on the water.  I did manage to scare myself with it though  ;D.  I made a few passes in front of the marina at around 3k rpm, trying to figure out the trim system.  Then once I was an expert at it  ::), I stood on the throttle and started trimming it up.  Every time I went up on the trim switch it went faster and gained more rpm, nice.  So now the hull has lifted and is moveing along pretty good.  I have no idea how fast it was going (didnt bring the GPS) but it felt fast.  So my dumb azz decides to trim it up more, BAD IDEA !!!  The bow cought a bunch of air and came way up, and it started dancing around from sponson to sponson.  Felt just like those little OB race boats on TV look just before they blow over.  Good thing I was already an expert and able to save it  ::).

 Bottom line is, I like the boat and it is going to get a real motor now.  As soon as the little blue boat is gone, the surgury can begin.  >:D

remind me, how much money do you have into this thing?

if memory serves me correctly, i think you stole the boat and motor for damn near nothing and got the motor running with little to no parts.

very cool.

and yes, get rid of the dildo.  ;D

 Your right Brad, I think the total on this one (so far) is right about $ ????.  I'm not saying, but its way cheap for what it is.  ;D

 Just a few more things to get rid of and the cutting starts.  >:D

Hey Propped,  ;D

You need to try a cleaver propeller and lift the ass of the boat some more, you're leaving the poker game with all your chips on the table....

That thing has the potential to fill your linens for sure  :thumbup:

If you can get some transom lift with a cleaver, it will "tip toe" a lttle more and make it more comfortable and stable.

Gotta go to the old mans garage and see what pitch is sitting in there...What pitch you ruuning now and at what RPM?

Might as well make it fun for a while  ;D

 Oh no I dont !! The OB has served its purpose by confirming to me why I dont like it (ugly, smelly, sounds gay, etc, etc). 

 It has a 14.5"  28 pitch 4 blade on it and I realy dont know what rpm it topped out at, I was a little busy holding on for dear life at that point.  When the bow cought to much air and started to climb like that, I looked just like this  :o

The guy showed up and bought the OB !!  ;D ;D

 It took a while to get that thing off there (it was huge), and he didnt like my idea of chopping it off with the sawzall and letting it fall.  So, I didnt have much time to get the boat torn down.  I did get the carpet out and cleaned up some of the glue, the balsa still looks good.  ;D

 Yea, it looks wayyyyy better, Still need to get those ugly brackets off there. And remove those strange little thinge on top corners of the transom, dont have any idea what there for (maybe somekind of OBers but plug  >:().

No.
Standard Berkeley, with rideplate/shoe.
Waiting to get a final price on that, but probobly Greg Shoemakers guy.
Thats not my decision, its up to the Daytona guru.
And no, theres no question limit (that I know of).  ;D

 It already has a rounded keel.  Its a 21', I think the flat keel deal was mainly a 19' issue.
