  "This is a very pretty ride.  I have a ways to go on the   
  setup as I would like a little more speed.  I have installed  
  a custom built hydrofoil that was designed by two guys  
  who drag race boats. Also, I have installed a skid plate  
  under the jackplate. This, along with the foil gets me out   
  of the hole twice as fast as before.  The skid plate also  
  completely eliminates any backwash over the transom.  
  I'm not sure if this will be the boat I want, but I'll give it   
  a try."
