She is on the trailer, and enjoying some serious cleaning and detailing. I also have to
service the lower units, replace my indicator cables, and give everything a 'once over'.

Looking forward to the thanksgiving event.

Stainless Marine, is the manuf

I do not think they are made from high grade stainless steel. I have other
high grade stainless steel components on the boat, and they are bright and shinny.

They are custom hand built, by Douglas Marine, which builds about 95% of the
worlds offshore tunnel hull, race boats.

I began this one mid 2006, and took delivery May 2007, in the peak of the market high.
Mine if a full race layup, carbon fiber and kevlar. This particual size/power option,
was over several hundred thousand. Prices have fallen quite a bit, since then.

Nice, thats not as much horsepower as I would have thought. Seems like less upkeep than an inboard engine?

Yes, much cheaper that big inboard super charged power, I know, I race offshore, and have owned several large, heavy, very fast, V-bottom boats.

Here is the thread for the actual event and pictures
