Our test day proved real-world perfect for running the Jarrett Bay. Northeast winds off Fort Lauderdale piled 4- to 5-foot seas right into the shallow water near shore. With seas dead on the nose, the 58 managed 25 knots without any discomfort. Granted, each boat has its own idiosyncrasies; the Jarrett Bay proved no exception. Using trim tabs to drop the bow just a hair resulted in a gain of about 2 knots for the same rpm when on plane. Turning beam-to the seas, she ran wide open at 38 knots at 2,330 rpm. I found that she also ran down-sea like a bullet on all points with nary a swerve, even with hands off the wheel. High-speed, hard-over turns scribe a relatively large circle, while small course adjustments happen instantly.
