The owner of hull No. 1 plans to keep the boat in the Caribbean and opted not to put any spray curtains on the flybridge. Needless to say, if the Sculley turned out to be a wet boat, we would immediately feel the consequences of his decision. We charged out of Lake Worth Inlet into 3- to 4-foot seas out of the northeast. As I closed on the Gulf Stream, the seas jumped up to 5- and 6-footers. The 64 ran smooth as silk at 30 knots straight into it, and my sunglasses remained spotless. Both up- and down-sea, I found an interesting performance characteristic: The bow never dropped into the next wave but lowered rather gently, almost as if in slow motion. I never felt an impact. Time to plane was about 10 seconds, although the boat actually planed before the turbos spun up to a full boost.
