It's only a 16 footer but it's so comfortable behind the wheel and on the deck fishin. The tri hull is awesome look-wise and runs thru the water like no other 16 footer I've been on. The color scheme on this rig is awesome, Silver flake on bottom to a flat Black, Red pinstripes and Silver flake on top and inside. I love this boat. If I were to buy another boat it would definitely have to be another Craft, at least a 19 ft."  WV bassman - WV

88 200+ Merc 71.1 mph @ 6200 rpm (gps). "I have ran Chopper props  
  but lose too much speed when loaded for tournaments.  
  The 24" Trophy Plus has been a great compromise for   
  fishing and speed.  Only lose 2 miles per hour loaded with  
  fuel and livewell. Will stay on plane at 22 miles per hour for  
  rough water or night fishing. Norriscraft boats and Mercury  
  outboards, it doesn't get any better than this."  
77 NorrisCraft 28" Chopper, 6" CMC hydraulic, Garmin 240, MinnKota 65  Rock-n-Roy - OH
Super Pro Medalist 12/24 V TM. 83 mph @ 6300 rpm (gps).  
86 200 Merc "This is a blast from the past, this old tri hull screams. It's  
  funny to watch people look at you while they point, look at   
  the old boat move, or they are pointing at a 100' rooster tail  
  as you go by. I'm in the middle of a 2.4 Bridgeport deal that  
  spins 8500 rpms. The lower unit is a 2 to 1 ratio low water  
  pickup. All you guys out there trying to get your engine height  
  set just right good luck, each time you go out the water  
  conditions change. Trust me, go with a hydraulic jackplate,  
  you can plane easier and run bigger props.  
  I run all Choppers big and small ear, 26", 28" 30". I run 83  
  mph with two guys and gear, by myself it runs 88 mph.  
  With the Bridgeport maybe 100 mph, "hold on".   
  P.S. Anybody with EFI for Bridgeports please email me."

     200+ Merc 83 mph @ 6300 rpm (gps). "Runs good until livewell is full  
  of water. Any suggestions on how to lose some weight?   
  The boat drops to 70 mph with full livewell."  
84 NorrisCraft 28" Merc Chopper II, 6" Reb jackplate, Lowrance X50,   Mike - GA
00 200 Merc carb OMC BF 45 TM. Propshaft is 1" above the pad.   
  71 mph @ 6000 rpm (gps). "This boat has been a nightmare  
  to setup. This combo should be way faster than 71 mph.   
  I was thinking it should see speeds in the upper 70's to 80   
  mph. I have tried many combos of props and engine heights.  
  The boat runs fastest with the propshaft even with or below  
  the pad??  I have a Bob's low water pick-up. Any ideas for  
  more speed?"

  gauges with white faces and red flat bezel inserts. Added  
  Pro-Tech deck sheet under front deck carpet for extra  
  cushion for those long hours of fishing.  Replaced surface   
  temp gauge with new Humminbird unit. Replaced steering  
  wheel with GT Grant 15" custom racing wheel and put

  one half black and red ruby carpet with Clipper Red/Silver  
  Black & Saddle upholstery for the seats.  One pro bass seat  
  on pro pole (front), one pro pole (rear). Also a hot foot for

            ProMax NorrisCraft, Triton & Legend boats to various Japanese  
  dealers. The test was done by Seiji Marine who was the first  
  to purchase NorrisCraft in Japan.  The speed was recorded  
  on one of those handy Garmin GPS's, on a very crispy  
  nice sunny winter day of 12/24/99. The temp was about 45F  
  taking about right amount of oxygen into the EFI !"  
96 NorrisCraft 25" Trophy, 6" Detwiler hydraulic, Lowrance X70's (2),  Keith - MI
     2000 XLDV MotorGuide 765 Competition. 84 mph @ 5800 rpm (gps).  
     225 Merc "This boat was Mac Jr's '96 demo and was setup by them.  
  They used this boat to mate with the Merc 3 Litre 225 and   
  had very good results.  It has a Bob's Machine Shop low  
  water pickup with a Detwiler HydroJack and setback plate  
  with a total setback of 12". They had to custom make a  
  stainless extension for the anti-cavitation plate which gives a   
  good holeshot.  Although not the fastest setup compared to  
  lighter motors, this rig really performs well and gets   
  surprisingly good mileage.  The Crumley's know how to   
  build 'em!!"

     1900 XLVee MotorGuide TM.  63 mph @ 5400 rpm (gps). "I've looked
