CONT 520 THAT IS MY BOAT AND I AM VERY HAPPY WITH IT. IMO THERE AIN'T NOTHING BETTER THAN A HAMANT HULL AND A WATERTHUNDER MOTOR. THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT AND THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS 1ST CLASS.

i was one of the 300 pound guys on the front of that red boat. i have to say i was surprised and impressed and i don't impress easy. i was used to running a VERY strong 520 on a step hull. it has been three or four years ago but i can't remember seeing a boat that big with the load we had in it go like that.

We had well over a 1,000lbs of passengers in Woods boat. I'm surprised how free the hull still ran. I know a bunch of boats you throw 600lbs or more of passengers and they turn into a plow that pushes a tsunami of a wake. Wood has been about the 8th person I know to try a R blade and all 8 are happier. They are quite but I love the snap boy do they hit hard.

Wood , how bad is the back wash. If i was to build a boat like that how fast could I expect it to run.

CODY, UNLESS I AM LOADED REAL HEAVY THERE IS NO BACKWASH PROBLEM, AND THEN IT IS ONLY MINOR. THE LS1 IS LIGHT AND THAT HELPS A LOT.
