    Just want to say thanks

    Just a quick line to thank the b and b yachts for a great boat. I built the Marissa echo 18 . For anyone debating this type of hull I have put mine through more extreme test then most. 1. Hull is very stable but, I did reinforce the floor between the two seams running stem to stern. I didn't like the feel of the floor when I walked on it so I pulled it up and stiffened the seam by running a two by four brace . 2. The boat runs at 27 miles an hour with a 40 hp Honda on the back and burns 1/4 a tank an hour . 3 the ride is extremely dry. It keeps the water off of the driver except in 60 mile an hour winds.( I did say I took mine through the mill) 4 she handles 5 foot chop easily if you know the ropes . I was actually impressed with its ability to avoid spearing. She actually chops those bad boys in half and expels the energy to the sides. 5. Leave lots of time to answer a million questions when you reach the dock.ps. She weighs in at 1200 pounds equipped and motored ... very light. I used thick puck board on my trailer bed instead of carpet. The thickness allows you to bury the screw heads so the boat doesn't get scratches. ... and you must leave the winch on until it's in the water or the boat will slide off... very slippery... 1 finger loading when it's home time. .. In conclusion thanks graham..
