I just figured I put some shots up of one of the most underrated hulls around. 35 Terry Jason Grand Slam launched August 07, w 3126 CAT currently fishing as a charter boat off Montauk.

Tuna-Yes I know Scott, very nice guy. His repower moving along, last time out new shaft and prop were installed.

El Mar-Can't answer exact for the builder, but those spray rails are part of the mold and are present when the hull is popped out of the mold. I possibly recall him saying that he needed that angle when he incorparated them into the mold in order for the rails to run as far aft as they do. Don't quote me on that though.

Looks like it is pretty much good to go, a lot of extra goodies in there for that price. Unfortunately all of our boat prices have taken a beating because of the crappy economy. FYI dark hulls are a pain if its gel-coat as they are a mother to wax. I did it on my brothers 35 T Jason until he had it painted and what a spring time PIA. Main reason I went with a white hull.

Money talks though a comparable Duffy or Osmond custom built to my wishes would have cost me a lot more cash, which means a heck of a lot more charters to pay for the boat.

Here is a shot I took of my brother's "Miss Mac" after the hull was painted and it sparkles in the sunlight, and never fades.

35 ft T Jason

A friend of mine has a 35 T Jason. I was off shore with him in 20-25 knot winds. Boat handled very well. Other then being wet the ride was vey good.

I was told they are good people to work with. I always wondered why there are not many posts about them.

Someone said (for whatever it is worth) that the mold rail sweep in bow was a mistake.

I think the rail gives them character. There is doubt what hull it is when you see one. My friend has one and loves it, I have never been out on it so I can't say how she rides but it is very good on fuel and with 450hp pushes 20 knots loaded up. The main reason he purchased the boat was because TJ was able to give him a price on a finished boat ready for electronics and no other builder could go into a contract like that.

I'm inclined to believe that is the explanation too. There are some lines on a boat that are more important than others - shear and entry are at the top of that list but spray rails come damned close behind. I'd guess that whoever made the plug was responsible - you have to have a virtual eye to get some of these things just right when you're doing this work in a shop that isn't much wider than the hull is.

Well I'm partial to them too, as I just winterized the one on my front lawn. I even put Xmas lights on it this year. I think they're fairly distinct, since the bow's got no flare. Which does make it wet. I do like the molded spray rail and quarter guard because there are ZERO fasteners through the hull to leak. I can cruise 20 knots fairly efficiently with 420hp 1.5 mpg. 26kts WFO

I've got one as well. It only has a 370 in it, so cruise is more like 17, but I smile at the fuel dock after a canyon trip.

Mine hastwin 130 gallon tanks, but I could use about 100 more. For now, a fuel bladder gets me by.

Absolutely love the handling though. People sleep like babies no matter what the conditions, which is good because loaded up and 100 miles each way it's a long ass ride some days.

Glad to see some fellow T-Jason owners chiming in. How about some pictures?

My speed specs are a little different, but I'm still happy with them. With a 3126 420hp CAT I usually run with 6-anglers, myself and a mate. I also have anywhere from 150 to 240-gallons of fuel on board. At 2000 rpms I cruise between 14 and 16-knot depending on wind and current direction. I say wind because my bridge does catch a breeze slightly, but I love having the bridge, especially at night on calm nights I go up top, turn on the spotlight and have awesome visibility. At 2200 the hull comes out of the water a bit and I get up to 17, don't usually push it to 2400, but can usually count on 19-knots, and wot about 23-knots. On an average inshore charter to the Point and areas around there I burn 18 to 20 gallons on a half day trip. Shark trips of about 30-miles round trip I burn 25 to 30-gallons.

A few of things I really love that I have in this boat are:Heat,A/C,Underwater lights, inverter, bridge, Sirius satellite radio and weather module, tuna/mako/labrador retriever in water door.

On a side note I see "Scott Free" is back in the water after her re-power will give him a call and see "how it goes".

Tom I talked to Scott a few days ago. He is very happy with the repower. Getting his 20 knot cruise at 16gph. Very smooth, any vibration is gone. It took some doing but he is very happy.

Sparky has a beautiful boat, perfect proportions & great mast. I've fished beside her and those picture don't do her justice.
