Very impressed with how the boat runs, much smoother than other flatbacks ive been on... the Porta is a must have to get the attitude right. Get the bow down and she just goes (she likes weight forward for sure). Super efficient and hauls weight like nothing with the 4 blade that's on it, nice low speed cruise... My uncle who used to run one at the OMC test center said the little keel extension made a world of difference in the sliding they always had.

Only negative I have is the scuppers pull in water so ive been using some plugs for now...

Towed her to the Bahamas Tuesday, got back last nite.

Thanks Scott! Still a work in progress for sure... Next necessities are a compass, Samson post, "electronics" box under the top to put stereo and vhf in (but mostly to throw crap in), and a few rod holders.
And an L shaped shelf in the console, coffin box, duckbills in my scuppers?, washdown/livewell setup, small freshwater tank, spreader lights, stainless plate above bow eye, eisenglass the list goes on!

No Chris, the B260 is the B60's 2KW big brother...4 5/8" hole through the bottom. Backing nut is about 5" across the flats. Have fabbed a wrench out of 1/4" plate aluminum to tighten it...

Chris, the 23 C Hawk Matt just picked up has a nice leaning post he'll be selling....give him a PM, he can send some pics.

It is aluminum, you could prep it and have it powdercoated.
