Nope....didn't like the way they looked, and they really restrict access and the use of the back of the boat. And, if responsible adults want to ride back there while cruising in decent conditions, it's ok with me...sorry for being a rebel ...not really sorry ;-)Very nice! Congrats! Love the Swingback! No safety rails???
I know it will go at least 40 with full gas, but may do up to 43 or so. I'll let you know. I put a little over 2 hours on it so far, so I was able to run it up a little.Gorgeous boat, congrats. After it's broke in let us know the top speed, I'm curious what the SPS hull does with a 175.
I agree Jeff...Beautiful boat, but I have to give a contrary opinion on the Swingback keep rail. We really like the look of the rail on ours and on other people’s swingback boats. Different strokes for different folks.
A big congratulations, great looking rig. Love the blackout and black 175 Yamaha with silver overlay on top. Works great with the ski tow. Hope our swing back with rail and ski tow give us a similar look. We decked out a new 23 SSBXP the same way and cannot wait to get it next week. Wanted to do some advertising for Bennington so we opted for the swing back with the lighted Bennington and speakers toped off with the stainless steel railing and black ladder to stay with the blackout pkg.
Stock aluminum prop. The dealer said there is no difference in top speed between 175 VMax and F200. I think better hole shot with the 175 VMax too. You should be high 30s with 4 on board I think. I may get a chance to take mine out this evening. The hydraulic steering pump is very quiet, contrary to some folks’ experiences. You can only slightly hear it at idle. Congrats! I’m sure you’ll love it.Keep us updated on the performance as we had to make a tuff decision between the 200hp and 175. The savings allowed us to add a few options most important the hydraulic assist steering. What prop are you using to hit the 40mph or greater? If we get something close to 40mph with a crew of four we will know we made the right decision.
I haven't finished break in yet, but I've had it up to 40 mph with stock aluminum prop. I have no plans to try to make it faster. It's very quiet, and the boat looks great with all of the RGB LED lighting inside and out.Chris,Have you an update on the speed and noise after break-in.
