You guys are so nice!

Managing 52 knots flatout. She's a full 10 knots faster than my last Scorp (also an 8.5 with 225 Opti). The acceleration has blown me away. It's got a 4 blade prop, and Graham and his team have got it beautifully set-up.

The SeaStar power steering has taken some getting used to - it's finger light, but also doesn't react to waves, which makes for much less effort in big seas. It's almost like auto-pilot.

I'm in love.
