Went to check out my new gator hull today before Mike put my boat back on the trailer. Looks awesome! Mike did a great job and really fast turnaround! Gives me a little more piece of mind when bouncing off those Lake Fork stumps! Can't wait to get her on the water! Will report back after a few weeks if anyone's interested.

Mike put one on my Gambler just a few months ago. You'll probably have to adjust how deep you put the trailer in the water as the boat slides right on and off the trailer. No loss of speed or handling.

Yeah for sure let us know what you think, pro's and con's. Everybody who fishes Fork has met many of those stumps and/or a rebar.

They pull the motor to spray the hull?

There's a lot more to it than just spraying the hull.

Charge depends on damage if not much a 20-21 ft boat 3k. On my Triton no speed loss and took 1 week during the holidays.

I know you're ribbing him about Rangers speed, but...
You can actually blueprint the bottom of the hull(pad) easier with this applied to get a higher top end speed, even tho you have added a little extra weight. Not saying you can't blueprint a fiberglass hull(pad), just easier to do with this.

Grind fiberglass matt down, repair if needed add three layers of glass then the coating. Much less than traditional fiberglass repair and gel coating.
