    You're going to love the feel of the hull. Too bad you couldn't have compared it to a stock 140 first. The handling and out of corner feel is so much improved with the added HP.
    You're going to have a blast.
    Good Luck!!

    Good luck and be safe on the maiden voyage Bob.

    You'll love it. Even though you'll be going faster than you normally do with your other rides, you'll notice that the hull just takes what you can give her and never really gives you that "oh sh-t" feeling like we've all encountered on a Pro hull at one time or another.

    It tracks well and is very stable. Because of it's comfort level, it actually seems like you're not going as fast as you really are.

    Be safe and let 'er eat!!!!

    Good luck Bob.

    I assume you're taking Mick's newly acquired 785 too? You did write "see what these babies can do"......
