I went with heavy duty manual called Rapid Jacks with 8" of setback. The 8 inches provides just enough clearance for the steering tie bar and plenty of engine tilt that almost gets the props out of the water. I'll snap a picture when the weather here in NJ improves.

I used a 14" Rapid Jack on my last Pulsare 2100. They make great stuff! I'm thinking about going to a 17" Hyd. Porta bracket on my 2800 if I wind up keeping the boat!

Pretty bad ass. That is a seriously legit boat and I'm thrilled you jumped on it when it became available. The motors and the hull look great and go well together, although I have to say for scientific reasons, 700 HP can make just about anything look pretty dang good!

Nice boat, Chuck!!

Wanted to give a shout out to Spencer aka Ramafications for all his help with laying out the dash and many other areas that needed some cutting tool craftsmanship. Plus all the helpful feedback from the forum on the setup.
I will try to get some action shots for BOTM candidates. Here's a shot on the rear

It is great to get it on the water and keep it in the water Thanks to you Bravo 1, the paint and upholstery look great The motor and rigging setup are spot on. I attached an action shot even though it was getting dark and difficult to make out the colors. Still trying to get some good action pics.
