    We will start this thread off with some Sportfish yachts heading out to sea during the White Marlin Open in the darkness. Normally we see videos of these vessels during the day but here is one at night.

    Good thread idea Ron. I love watching boats run thru an inlet (post #3). Gives a good idea of how well these hulls perform on plane. Have yet to see a Viking run level.

    You wouldn’t want them to run at zero degrees trim at 35 40 knots? 3 - 4 degrees is optimum for many planing boats, but a SF with 2000 - 3000 gallons of fuel has many duties to accomplish in one hull - high speed, long range, low speed, remote locations, heavy seas all in one package.

    All that at zero degree running trim angle?I don’t think so.

    Here's some big Sportfish running in the inlet at the White Marlin Open. I particularly like the 75' Jim Smith

    You can see the outstanding running characteristics of the Jim Smith hull there ...it helps that the driver has his speed timed perfectly to the conditions as well.

    Who needs bow rails ...lol.

    I'm confused;
    Quarantine in state to state travel?
    Something special in AK?

    I’ve been on that boat and it’s a terrific running boat, terrific sea boat. At 1200 rpms it’s doing 20 knots.

    AK has had 14 day quarantine requirements for anyone traveling in from out of state from early on in the pandemic. You can avoid with recent negative test but as we all know, testing has only become readily available fairly recently.

    So, quarantine your ass on board with a fishing rod in you hands. Not a brain teaser.
