Congratulations to Paul Nichols and Cooper Jones on breaking the current Bass Boat Record Run of 652 miles from Paducah, KY to Knoxville, TN. The record was crushed using a Bullet 21 XDC, a Mercury 300 Pro XS and a Hydromotive Engineering 32” Quad IV X O/B SST propeller. The 11+ hour gruelling run included traversing 9 locks and several fuel stops. That did not deter Paul and Cooper from breaking the old record by about 1 1/2 hours and averaging 88+ mph while on the water. Paul later said the boat, motor and prop performed flawlessly.
