Thanks for taking photos, I got so busy with everything else I didn't get a chance to take any.  Lots of fun, we finally powered up and headed south, put out around 6pm.  Will have to consider this trip again next year.  Not quite ready for a meet yet, but a fine day trip.  There is other camping opportunities and other boat ramps.  Maybe over winter give it some thought.

His name is Trent Barton and he is a marine mechanic and used to work for a glastron dealer here in nebraska.  Fresh rebuild on the structure. I think he said 62.8 gps. Nice guy and a lot of knowledge. sounds like he may try to make the tip north next year. He is on the facebook group, I am trying to get him to join here.

I thought he said his top speed was in the 64-65 range, and further stated that great care was taken to make it look like an 85 hp head.

I think you are more on the mark for speed, I knew it was above the 60mph mark. I remember the cowling thing too.

One thing I do remember he said was his 143 jetflite was modified with a pad and a steal transom. and with the same Johnson could do 88mph
