OK, I'm suffering Hurricane Envy. Don't worry about the bent props... as long as they're bent in opposite ways on opposite engines, the wobbles will cancel each other out!

And don't put down your boat compared to the CZ7... Add a few toys and you'll have a much more "manly" boat anyway...

Congrats on acquiring a kick-a@@ boat!

Thanks Stoo and to all those across the pond who post on this board. This is by far the greatest source for rib information. They are practically unheard of as recreational boats here.

First day out crossing through US waters, I was intercepted by the US department of Homeland Security. 32 foot boat with 3 x 300 Verado's. (I held them off as long as I could)

They spent 20 minutes searching my boat. "We don't see many boats like this around here"

Don't get me wrong... my "poor man" statement is not putting the boat down. It's an incredible riding boat, best / driest riding boat I've ever been on. I keep slowing down for big wakes and rough water, only to find that it was unnecessary. The statement is more tongue in cheek... I've got 1/10th CZ7 money into it with the same performance... priceless.

Thanks as well to Sunrider for starting the project and letting me finish it. I'd been looking for a 733 for 3 years.

Through markings on the boat trailer, I was able to determine which unit the boat belonged to. I managed to find images of the boat's former life with "Special Boat Unit 12".

She looks great ! You will have to wear an all black outfit and call her something like 'Ninja Warrior', perhaps fit an A Frame and a strobe light on top and watch other boats get out of your way in a hurry ..8-)

They actually cut the .50 caliber mount off and left about 10 inches of it behind. I can't even use it as a samson post. Anyone here weld aluminum?
