I called when I was looking....great prices. Seemed to be a nice guy.

That being said. He was using .090 aluminum.

A 19' boat with a 27 pro drive runs 27 with 2 people?

Not sure yet but need to make a decision quick but leaning to 36 prodrive, he says it will hit 31 + with stock motor

What's he using .090? .080? And how many braces? 2? Maybe 3? I guess it may do it until you hit that first stump!

3/16 bottom and everything else 1/8, I should have taken a pic of the boat he is close to finishing up but looks like more than three braces but didn't count

I don't put much faith in the reports of stock motors running 28-29 on 17 and 18' boats tht are all 1/8th. I really doubt it will run anywhere close to 31 with a stock motor however with the 3/16 bottom you shouldn't have to worry about dents. I just wouldn't expect the speeds he's claiming

Not sure what size you are wanting, but I would expect something more along the lines of 26-28 mph.

My boat, built by Cory (thirdtimesacharm), 3/16 bottom, the rest 1/8, 8" catwalks, extended deck, open floor, ended up be 19' 10". It'll do 26-27 one person empty with a stock 36 PD.

31mph?? LMAO

When people ask me. "How fast it will run?" My reply is. More than 20mph. Less than 40mph. If you want guaranteed speeds , I'll build you a padded bay boat. We got a 27' running 84mph. 1/4" bottom. 3/16" sides


Get that 31 mph is writing.

19'x45'x19' is BIG!!!!

I'll take 1000 of them for that price. But, I only want 19'x45'x4'. 19' deep is extremely too deep. Unless you build ya camp in it. Maybe have a access door about 4' from bottom.

Yeah I don't know why a builder would make a guess especially on the high side. Then the customer is disappointed. I always low ball and it usually runs better than predicted

It's a V-bottom that has a racing pad that forms to transom. It allows the boat (with enough HP) to ride on pad. Pad is approx. 18" wide. When running correctly, about 2" of pad and cavitation plate is the only alum touching water. Allison Race boats have the same design.

Sounds fun. Now someone has to mod out a MM to run on a padded boat. :D

21'8" of peel you face back. Boat runs in the upper 70's, low 80's and is very stable. If it were a little shorter, thus lighter, I would have run this thing against my old 202 Blazer without a problem.
