Incredible Vessel

May 08, 2018

We are on our second to last leg home off the coast of Virginia in 4-6+ head seas and thought it would be good to say thank you for making such an incredible vessel that meets all of my objectives outlined for the new build. She is stunning inside and out and provides such a soft ride compared to our prior vessel.

I know everyone put in extra hours so we could meet my [time frame]. The [shakedown] trip has been a great learning experience with her. It is tough to decide what I love best but I guess it is the soft ride (we did 15 knots from Fort Lauderdale to Fort Pierce in less than ideal conditions and could not believe how solid and gentle she was), she handles like a much smaller vessel when maneuvering, the proportional hydraulic thrusters got a good work out in the hour and half we were stuck between Railroad bridge and Andrews Avenue on the New River so I am now an expert and they are the perfect addition to her, the electronics are phenomenal as we had two all night runs….the stabilizers do an amazing job in all conditions and the appliances are really high end and functional (stove top boils water in minutes and grill is essential gear given how big and hot it is). She is a bit big for the ICW but certainly turned a lot of heads.  

We learned a few things which will serve us well going forward...

Take it slow and you will be safe and comfortable with this baby but if need to get ahead of the weather then she can do 15 knots in some not so nice stuff. Engine room is easy to move around in even in the big stuff so put on you head gear and visit frequently even though the cameras give HD view. Outer Reef is an amazing group of people who are committed to building the best sea going pleasure craft possible. Great people always make a difference...

I turned 59 on her and hope to still have her when I turn 70. Thank you for the beginning of a wonderful adventure.
