It's pretty,, It's soooo pretty !

your friendly local v-drive owner


Itís the prettiest thing on this tub, boat hauled ass still needs a little more set up, prop has a lot of lift so the nose is flighty, it does take a set as long as my foot is on the down pedal, it is a blast to drive, nice to be back in a flatty again

After another year of beating the hell out of this thing, itís time to give it some love,  especially after the v-drive pucked all the oil out of it. Rebuilding the v-drive getting the cases sand blasted, re-glassing the bulkhead back to the deck, fixing the broken tank straps, and whatever else I can find so I can beat the hell out of it next year

Thatís just the joys and f having a flatty.Between my dad, me and my son, we beat the hell out of this thing, and it was on the water from March until 2 weeks ago, and almost 2 times a week. I said I would be happy if it ran in the 90ís well side by side with my cousin in a 21 Daytona on GPS it went 94mph. A few pics from 2 weeks ago with it. With 3 generation driving it

Definitely not taking this one to horsepower fest. Since itís upside down to glass the bulkhead decided to straighten the bottom and speed coat it too.

Drop through strut is waisted, Iím putting a heavy duty bolt up strut, but unfortunately I have to fill the hole in the boat. This became a lot more work then planned

Not as productive as those guys on the raffle boat, but we did sand on this bottom all day long and got the new strut set in place.
