    Glad she is working out so well for you now that you have her up and running. Having the boats abilities will open up extra days and fishing chances you would miss with the smaller boats.

      • I'm a tired old man and I have been on a lot of boats. Ran the 6 - 8s and never had a thought of backing off. No pounding at all. I can honestly say that this is the most solid boat of this size that I have ever been on. Most importantly, it looks cool.

      • You’re living the life Jerry. Sounds like Linda’s Rock is working out well for you.

        • Jerry. Enjoy the boat. It’s a great feeling when a boat rides and handles well.

            I know next to nothing about naval architecture, but I always thought that was a special design. The drawings that Nay so graciously donated to us boat junkies did nothing to make that thought go away. I remember how excited George got, when talking about it in Punta Gorda. That puts it in perspective, for me, anyway.
            Jerry, you done good.

            • jerry have you installed the a/c yet? it is also a reverse cycle heater & can be used for winter protection providing the marina electricity is reliable, note it will shut down with low voltage & show a warning on the keypad, I cannot locate the manual but you should be able to locate one from cruise air or ocean yachts where the unit came from they might have a copy..

              • No A/C yet Jim. Need to find a generator. Kind of like the open space in the engine compartment. Don't know if I'll install anything else.
