    My wife and I went out yesterday in the 28' Warlock for the first time this year and it ran perfectly. We sure love this boat!

    Fabulous photos Bill!

    Don't seem to manage to log on to the Forum as often these days Bill, but got to give You & Your Wife a tip on the hat for Your stunning photos posted. Hope that You Guys get to use the Warlock more this season and that You have Yourself a wonderful continued boating season.

    Cheers, Lars.

    P.S. How about a few new photos of my favorite Kevlar49 boat? D.S.

    Hi Lars. You have to be one of the nicest, kindest and warmest guys on the planet but we can pretend you are the ruthless Viking - lol. I had just walked up to the bow of the Warlock after running for a couple hours to see how I liked the new Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit shoes my wife had bought for me when she took the picture which I also thought turned out well. The shoes are awesome boating shoes with no slip on the slick deck and weigh almost nothing. Thank you for the kind words and I hope you are also enjoying a fun boating season! I still have the old Daytona which is now in an insulated building within 2 miles of my house. Take care, Bill

    Now that's a boat storage!

    Thank You for Your kind words Bill. Love the Caribbean color of the floor. The interior of the building even matches the Daytona ♡
    Glad You still also have the little Donzi. Got to check out those Nike shoes of yours, seem fantastic. Won't run any of my boats this year. My Schiada has a new owner lined up for it, so the only boat I got in the U.S. is a 1989 Team Scarab 31 by Larry Smith I bought myself recently and I won't have time to set it up right 'till next year, but I feel very privileged to have found it.

    I rolled a heavy coat of Sherwin Williams Tile Clad epoxy on that concrete floor of the building I bought for storage. Tile Clad is some tough stuff and you can pick any color from their chart. Your Larry Smith 31' Scarab looks like it should handle just about any water! Sweet! Here is a picture of the Nike shoes that Deanna got for me. They are made with a stretchy knit that breathes and a sole that grips like nothing else I have ever had. Take care and enjoy the Scarab.

    OMG-The Revolution 4 25P prop is awesome!! I saw the fastest speeds that I have seen since buying the boat - before and after rebuilding the 540 engine. We hit 74 MPH on a downwind run at 5300 RPMs and 71 MPH on an upwind run.

    Bill did you run your 28 at all in 2016? Curious how the speeds ended up. How much horsepower do you think the 540 is making?

    Hi Greg,
    I think we only took it out a couple times this past year. The second time I tried to make a video from my drone, but the wind and water conditions made it difficult. I believe the engine makes around 700hp with a top speed so far of 75mph with the Rev4 prop. I have no doubt that another prop would gain some top speed, but I like the handling so well that I am not inclined to try any other props. Bill

    I agree 100% on the Rev 4 prop. Another 28 with a single will be coming on the market soon that is super clean. It would be a nice sister to yours.
