I want to thank you for the fantastic work you and your staff did on my

Although I purchased my used boat from the founder of the yacht manufacturer
that designed it, when I took it on its sea trial it couldn’t reach the
design maximum rpm in either engine.  I discussed this with the engine
surveyor who said I was giving the boat manufacturer way too much credit in
my thinking that they would match the perfect props with the boat.  I was
also frustrated that at maximum throttle the semi-displacement hull plowed
against the bow wave but wouldn’t get on plane.

With the modified props from Steve, the boat gets right to its correct
maximum rpm in each engine.

For the first time in the boat’s life, it now gets on plane.

I’m very happy.
