Congrats - been following the build all the way. She's sitting right on her lines even with that 600 lb engine on the back 8)

The boat exceeds my expectations in every way Michael.
Glad your happy with it. You'll find you like it even more with fish blood on it. Great job

Dang Lee she looks great 8) How is the top end with your current prop rpm's at full throttle. Been following your build since day one and you finally have a beautiful boat to be proud of.

Late to the party but you have my congratulations also. That is one fine looking boat :!: There is nothing like giving her the throttle for the first time and feeling your baby do what it was born for :D

Unfortunately the lake we had available for testing the boat was very crowded at the time. We were more focused on not running into anyone than performance - and we were too busy grinning from ear to ear to write down any figures!

At the moment I can't even give details of the prop because I am away from the boat. It's 21" pitch but I don't remember the diameter or style. Enough to say that it works very well - holds on like crazy, even when "semi-surfacing". The prop is just hitting 6000 rpm at full throttle.

We have propped the boat for hole shot and pulling power rather than for top-end speed. Where I mostly fish is speed limited to 40 kts.

With a squirt of power the boat gets onto the plane in a boat length. It runs like its on rails, even at high speed and really hangs on in tight turns. If you pull it at speed into a tight turn and feed the power ti it, you can get into a controlled power slide.

The hull/motor combo seems to have no vices. With engine trim, Jack plate height and trim tabs, it's gonna take a while to figure out how to drive it and to find its sweet spot for cruising.

So far, the best I have seen is 44 kts at 6000 rpm. I think it will do better on this prop once I figure out how to drive it.

I think it will cruise around 30 kts at 45000 rpm burning about 40 L/hr.

The power and performance of the Yammie 250 hp Vmax SHO is awesome! It feels like it just wants to GO!

I'll post more pics and some video shortly.

I have to say you did a great job 8) But and there it comes :P imho you you raped the MG design, probably I missed something but I still don't get it, why make this into a fishing platform, while Jaquess has better ones out there? But again you did nice work 8)
Congrats on the splash 8) 8)

imho you you raped the MG design
"Raped"!
"Raped"?

I am deeply offended! :lol: I think I have treated Jacques design with respect.

So what would you suggest as a better alternative Peter?

Here are the requirements:
1) Stable casting platform - with a large casting deck up front and another at the rear to accommodate at least three fishing together.
2) Able to handle some rough water with safety (min 18o deadrise at the transom) while maintaining useful cruise speed - the Gulf of Carpentaria is relatively shallow and can really stand up in windy conditions
3) Min 6 meter length to handle the Hinchinbrook Channel's short frequency/amplitude chop
4) Able to accommodate appropriate Minn Kota trolling motor and batteries (in this case 3 x 120 Ah for a 112lb Ulterra iLink)
5) Range (out and back) of at least 2-300 nm.
6) Plumbed kill tank and live-well for dealing with dinner on trips to remote areas and large enough to double as ballast tanks that can be pumped up to throw a good wake for wakeboading
7) Plenty of storage space for gear etc
8 ) Useful ski/wakeboard boat able to pull up two serious single skiers
9) Big enough to intimidate saltwater crocodiles up to 5 meters
11) High enough sides to keep fishos safe from saltwater crocs that see them as lunch/dinner
12) Large enough cockpit for at least two fishos to be able to roll out their sleeping bags for an over-nighter
13) Looks the business and reflects my personality!

My "raped" Mangusta 22 easily meets all of the above criteria!

So what would you suggest Peter?
