    Brought home a new bird today -- WOW

    Picked up a 21 PHX with verado today after looking for a new bird for a bit. Man, am I ever glad I pulled the trigger. What a machine. Only was able to put 1.6 hours on her so the first hour is done break in wise. Looking forward to being able to stretch it out a bit tomorrow but still stay within the confines of 4500 RPM. I took a few guys out for the hour ride and they were blown away too. Normal wakes that would have made the boat slap off the water were like nothing with this beast.

    Fit and finish are first rate. The center box is stupid big. Had a 19.5 foot R before and I thought I had a lot of stuff, then I put it all in the rod locker and the center storage box. Plenty of room, and then some.

    Prop is 25 Fury 3 blade for now. I will have to see how it performs overall but as of right now, I am really impressed with the performance hole shot wise.

    Color scheme is galaxy mist, maroon pins, silver with the dual color inside which is silver.

    Sure you can. So you get a 2 day suspension, it'll be worth it. LOL Probably kinda what I said when I saw my midnight blue 919 in the sunlight for the first time.

    Great looking Bird. Congrats.

    Awesome looking rig! I am curious on how the Verado performs when you get your break in complete.

    I’m planning on doing a 30, 60, 90 day. Looking at other props to try at the 20 hour service. I’m lucky enough to be living on a 500 acre lake so I don’t get to let it really eat. Fastest I’ve been is 67 at about 6100. Taking it to a bigger lake next weekend hopefully and then I’ll be able to see what it can do with the fury 3 blade which came stock.
