So I have had time to fish out of it and mess around on the lake alot. First, I love the boat. The kids love tubing behind it, or just anchoring at the lake and swimming. I've put all sorts of fish in it but no walleye yet. I fished with a guy today that didn't go with a full windshield because he was worried about getting blown around. After fishing in my boat and a G318SF he has changed his mind. We were fishing brush piles for crappie today and had zero trouble staying over the pile with the Terrova. My father and I were in some pretty good chop last week and its nice not taking spray to the face all the time.

3 mildly annoying things
The boat lists to port slightly while underway. It also makes it difficult to get that perfectly trailered boat.

Snap to hold the driver's side seat broke the first time we had the boat out.

The carpet on both guides on the trailer is coming off already.

I know a bit off topic but that boat would be a completely different boat with a 4 blade Stainless Spitfire prop. It made a huge difference on my Lund 1775 Impact with the same engine. Better all around. Just throwing that out there.

Congrats on the new boat!

What was on there before? Currently running a 4 blade 13x17p aluminum prop. With just me, a full tank of fuel, and boat loaded for fishing I can hit 41mph.

Not sure the of the exact prop but it was the standard 3 blade aluminum prop it came with. The stainless was good on speed, around what you are getting, maybe a few mph more. Where the stainless really did good was staying hooked up in the turns and not blowing out. Holeshot was great too.

So the boat is stored in my non climate controlled shop. Id like to get a cover for it so it doesnt get filthy while parked this winter. Any recommendations?

We have been putting crappie in her.

Order a piece of clear wrap from Dr Shrink and cover the boat, but not shrink it...then fold it up come spring and use it again next year.
