Man I really like the fully enclosed sleds.
If I ever own one, I think I would leave the giant grass rake off.
One made entirely of carbon with a forced induction ECOtec would be ideal. :drunken:

Interesting pics; two true Thurmans side by side. The nose on the older red boat drops about 1.5 inches, while the nose on the red, white, blue boat drops about two inches. Looks like the noses on the Thurman's dropped more on the newer boats. John, is the nose drop just for aesthetics, or does it serve a purpose? It looks like Don only drops the nose about 1 inch, and the Al Davids don't have any drop.

They played with different nose drops over the years, seen a few that they dropped them 3" as well, but the drawback is this takes away from useable rake surface, Don has only dropped all 1", it is a proportional thing I guess.
