    If she is going on tour in a month I should hope that she is built and has a few hours on her already.

    Having skipped plenty of large sportfishers, I dont see how you'd fish a 100 plus footer effectively? Largest one I ran in a tournament was 86 ft and it was like herding cats trying to manuever that thing during the end game with mostly video feeds.

    Dont get me wrong, these things are beautiful, but practical?... no way

    Marlena used to go for flounder & strippers off Montauk. The locals used her as a landmark.:rolleyes:

    As far as I know, the new Marlena is a 95 ft Jim Smith and it was launched already from the Hinckley yard around mid April. Needless to say she's Stunning! Enclosed bridge with a yellow hull. Jim Smith yachts (among a few others) causes a bit of drool to run from my mouth:)
