I cannot wait... the last three weeks have been insane. but it will all be worth it in the end. I am getting word the trout are starting to show up in my spots, so it will be ready just in time.

Great boat. I have the 224 with a Merc 225 ProXS. At 40 mph, I get about 3.5 -3.7 mpg and at WOT I run around 54 and about 2.9 mpg. Those numbers are with full fuel, ice in the box, loaded Yeti and 2-3 people. Not sure my prop. But great boat in the chop and awesome to fish 3 guys on that front deck and not have any issues.

Got my boat today and had her on the water for about 4 hours breaking her in. I had my niece's and nephew with me, so was unable to get any pictures or videos. but I took a snap shop of what my I did. not bad considering I left the motor trimmed down all the way.


this mercury is a beast... the hole shot she has throws you back in your seat. I cannot imagine what the 300 pro xs would do on this boat. it would be stupid fast.

I did not do my own rigging. If your're looking for someone, contact Jason at Crown Leisure Marine, he does an outstanding job.

I very easily could be the first boat to the island... Sunday coming from the Back Bay to the small craft harbor, I ran into a little chop once I came under the Ocean Springs bridge. we had a nice 2' to 3' chop with the occasional 4' rolling in. It was me and a 32' yellowfin with triple outboards. He was catching me quickly in the chop as that was nothing for him. But once we cleared the Marina on the point and we had a small chop, I was able to leave him in my wake. I noticed with a small chop under a 1/2' she will absolutely fly. I will pull the stats soon, but my gps speed hit 61mph.


oh yea... we found some decent trout on Sunday, and I caught a bunch of undersized reds at Cat Island on Saturday. All in all, not a bad weekend of fishing.
