This hull is unbelievably free for its size and will handle any power combination you want to throw in it. It will be available to see and drive on Kissimmee this weekend. The performance will speak for itself. Take the ride.

LOOKS LIKE STANLEY'S BOAT. MUST RUN REALLY FREE BECAUSE THE BACK OF THAT MOTOR LOOKS WAY LOW! MAY BE AN ILLUSION. ITS 14 FEET LONG. HOW WIDE IS IT?

Hopefully I can answer most questions. It is not a Stanley or Hawk. It is proprietary from our Pacemaker 12' mold with several mods. At the current side height it is 85 1/2" wide at the top and 80" at the bottom. The step is 91" from the rear. The engine is exactly level with the runners. It is an illusion that is looks low in the rear. There has not been any tweaking done on the hull yet and as I said earlier this is a plug boat built heavy. There have been numerous contour changes and step height changes of which I'm not going to discuss at the time. Just an all around pleasure to run.

I'm talking about a reasonable amount of HP. Some unlimited race boats are much lighter and smaller and are over a thousand conservatively. Therefore as a heavier more bouyant ride boat it is fair to say that wouldn't be a problem. Although it appears that alot of HP on a boat like this would be a waste unless you were gonna tow four or five others like it. The hull was designed to give the carmotor guys a more user friendly platform that is still controllable with some HP and doesn't have a mind of its own when you enter or come out of high speed. I will say that these hulls are fast and have to be respected. When operating these boats at high speeds you become a product of your environment and you need to do it in a safe place with good visibility. But to me the greatest benefit is the ability to cruise at low rpm with great efficiency and it doesn't sound like you're at the Gatornationals everytime you take off or cruise by at a reasonable speed. And please guys dont take this as an attack on your heavy high horsepower rigs because that is not our intention. There is no way that any one particular boat or power setup will make everyone happy all of the time. I believe that independent airboaters each love their respective boats and can show their individualism as they choose. We all come from several different social or ethnic backgrounds and all love to airboat for different reasons. I've owned several different boats over the past 20 plus years and know exactly what I want in a boat. We all run in diverse areas all over the nation. but for me where I run, I'm not far from it with this one. Lastly, I will say that my passion for airboating has driven me to want to reach my personal goals of satisfaction with a rig. I love to boat more now than I ever have and it is a wonderful thing.

I was one of the lucky guys to run it sat at the bus, it jumps up on plane quicker than my hawk 12 foot step, slides great,no crow hop turning at speed just slides the way a step should.sure doesn't feel like 14 foot boat. :salute:

Helms 24, I'm not sure who you may be referring to but I will tell you that eveyone who has ran this hull has been ecstatic over its performance. Keep in mind it just hit the water saturday in Osceola County. And i'm not gonna be prejudiced, but I also believe that if someone doesn't like it then they more than likely have a hidden agenda.
