    Took her out yesterday for the first time and finished with 3.3 hours. Electronically limited to 6,800 RPM until around 7.5 hours. At 6,800 RPM in calm lake water she was able to get to 49 MPH. (GPS) Looking forward to finishing the break in period for the extra acceleration as well as top end. Everything worked perfectly an did not come up with any gripes.

    Also, I finished the boat port. It's wired with two high flow electrical fans to blow dry the inside of the boat. Three 20W LED lights for illumination and multiple power plugs. It came out very nicely and is very functional.

    So far I am very impressed with this 215 HOI Wake Scarab!

    It is a Palram Arcadia. I have two of them back to back. 16' + 16'. (32' total length) I had to slightly modify mine with feet at the base that raised it 18" and came inward so I could mount it on my driveway that was slightly narrower than the width.

    Did you have to add the leg extensions for height? Where did you buy from?

    I had a friend create them out of 1/4" steel. I needed the extra height to clear the tower as well as inward mounted attached bracket to mount to the cement driveway since the port base was a little bit wider than my driveway. I did not want to sink cement posts in the dirt.
