Love the paint scheme, it is so different and kind of a bridge between new and old plus the white really sets it off.

First off I dont know any hot chicks that would be willing to get naked. PLus the boat is so light that the honeys that could get on the front would be in the 80lbs range, but no one, i dont care how hot they are will ever be on the front of that boat. The only thing that is going to go on there is the trophys for winning shows and races. Unless the trophy is to big then ill just set it next to the boat lol

The injection works really well actually. It took a little learning curve. It cruises great, idles a little fat but not bad, pill changes take a few seconds and the only tuning is changing the pill. Its like changing jets in a carb but instead of 4 or 8 jets it one pill.
