I would want the spray rails. Go ahead and add them, we both know you're going to! :lol:
Yes, I'm going to add spray rails. It's become a question of exactly where?

The 6 pics below from the rat rod test run at WOT are influencing my thinking, particularly the second and third, bearing in mind these pics were taken in a sheltered arm of the river on a windy day, where the ride was dry. At WOT going into a chop around the corner, the going got rather wet.

My current thinking is to run the spray rails from about one foot aft of the bow and parallel to the gunwales, until they run parallel to and just above the antifoul line until just shy of mid ships, similar to a boat I greatly admire, the Pulsifer Hampton launch (last pic).

Feedback on this approach sought and appreciated. :D

That sounds right. Might be less work to just drive slower.

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

I think that would work. I do like the idea of running them full length though.
They would provide a bit of protection, Just my thoughts. :D

I like the look on the Pulsifer.

Boy does she look good!!!
As for spray rails, I'd start at the prow to about the point you're thinking, so the 1-2 ft chop doesn't soak you. Like the Pulsifer Hampton launch (bummer for a wedding - maybe it means something good for a maritime couple?). My $.02

She is definitely a beautiful boat on the water, but she does have a wild side with a little speed.

If you are getting wet I think splash rails are a must. Size and placement I am not sure of. It would be nice to get some lift out of them but at the current speeds that might not happen. And if too big or in the wrong spot you might get a lot of pounding from them. Sorry not much help from me. I am just happy the tranny seems to be working.

She looks absolutely amazing. The videos are great, I keep going back to them. I love how her lines are quite simple, belying just how complicated a boat she really is. Have loved watching this come together.
