Post 1848 Gatortail Extreme
So I just received my new rig this past weekend, 1848 Extreme w/ 37 efi short transom. Already started putting some hours on her. So I am still in the break in period so I have been trying to keep it under 4000 rpms. So far I love it. Here are some deep water stats:

Basic boat supplies (life jackets, K2 seat, Spare K2 20 qrt, anchor, paddle etc.)

Solo - GPS max said 31 but I seen 30 multiple times.

Two adults - (average size) GPS said 29 bumping 30.

Solo Hunt load, 7 dozen ringecks , gun and blind bag - didn't GPS it but seemed really close to the two adults

Thanks for reading.

Local dealer likes the short transom motors so probably pushed it a little. I find them uncomfortable to drive.

Good looking rig Danny!

If you swap out the K2 for a Yeti and those ringnecks for some wigeons, you'd be pushing 33mph.

Congrats on the boat!
