Watched it earlier this morning on youtube. Great videos Ken. Looking forward to the next ones on this boat.

On the bouncing issue at low speeds....set the Atlas at about 6. Which is 2.5" on the tape. I've found that works best and you really dont loose any whole shot at all. I know everyone runs boats differently. Ive just found that to be my good all around height on my jackplate. Actually rarely ever move it.

Agree 1000%! If you have the plate too high or too low it is a totally different boat. Once I dialed it in the ride in rough water has been great!

Does Skeeter still do the all aluminum decking up front?

I looked at a Skeeter many years ago and the decking reminded me of a computer floor in an IT center.

Weight in the driver seat has a lot to do with it. smile

Not sure bud. But, it turned me off of getting a skeeter.

Ken seemed quite partial to Skeeter right off the bat .

I don't know about Skeeter now, I don't tourney fish and haven't ridden in one in a long time but friends and I used to laugh at listening to Skeeter crossing Rayburn and they sounded like a rapid base drumming sound vs other boats.
