    Had some guy in a very nice checkmate with an I/o V8 and thru transom exhaust made a point to catch up to me at a no wake zone under a bridge. When we were able to go I ruined his day. If he had less gold chains around his neck the weight savings might have helped him Lol

    These Shearwaters are pretty amazing hulls really. I did a lot of homework before choosing this bayboat. Very well built. My boat is 22.6 feet. Hull is 1900 lbs and has a pad. I chose the SHO Yamaha because it is a 4.2 litre, 64lbs lighter than the 300, 20 " shaft , and within 25 hp of the 300 as per EPA tests.The boat floats skinny for backcountry fishing.
