I see it has trim tabs, or whatever they are called. Is that because of the weight of the outboards?

Is that the 8.1 stepped? I think that set-up on the 8.5, would be my perfect boat.

Those trib tabs are so small I wonder how effective they will be? And they aren't there to counteract torque cos I assume the engines will be handed.

Stunning looking outfot but I wouldn't have gone for the Verados - nice pair of Etecs or Suzuki 250s.

550hp on a rib now that is insane hehehehehe I wanna try that

When I win the lottery

Do you suppose you need to tow a tanker behind it?

Then again you probably get anywhere you need to go in about 45 seconds anyway

it has trim tabs and a bow ballast tank although in all fairness the setup does mirror an older scorpion almost exact with regairds to engines, bow tank, trim tabs, colour etc so probably an upgrade. Personally imho i would have though the tabs are to counter act lean and maybe get on the plane quicker purely due to the scorps deep v hull
