No plans it just a toy, that boat is the only piece of "single, pre baby life" I have left.  I'm not complaining by the way, couldn't be happier.


Don't listen to what people say about marriage and babys.  Keep your hobbies and include your family in them. If that's too much to ask for, you chose wrong when you get/got married.

The boat looks awesome!  8)

Thanks for the kind words, on another note (ie your other thread) I wouldnt add 200 extra pounds of big block to this boat or yours for the world.  Loosing my 150 Pound pasenger made the difference in 3 MPH on my top end.

I guess I'm going in the right direction then.  When I bought the boat (July 07) I was a BIG boy, 315lbs.  I've lost 55lbs.  Hoping, by the time summer rolls around, I'll have lost the majority of next 70lbs.  That being said, 3mph IS 3mph. I'll take it anyway I can.  Then the 408 stroker on top of that would be plenty.

That was with the old engine build. Then it was 77.something at 5000 with a Billet B impeller(like an A-).  When I added the vacuum pump and mufflers it turned 5400 but I didn't get a speed run. I don't thing the mufflers had anything to do with it but two sets off muffler sure didnt hurt this thing. I don't think the vacuum pump made all that power it just freed it up. The old motor had crank case psi problems that i've taken steps to correct in the new build, plus about 50 to 75 extra horses. Funny thing is that engine never turned passed 5000 when it was in my Mustang either , must have been the psi. 

I've gotta get it buttoned back us soon its got a new stainless B cut Turbine  impeller that i'm gonna run back to back with a B cut Hi-helix, so it ought to be interesting.

I guess I'm going in the right direction then.  When I bought the boat (July 07) I was a BIG boy, 315lbs.  I've lost 55lbs.  Hoping, by the time summer rolls around, I'll have lost the majority of next 70lbs.  That being said, 3mph IS 3mph.

Seriously, good job!

I will add that I belive the loosing the pasenger thing had mostly to do with where the weight was located.  Because the boat is so tiny (narrow) the biggest problem is airing it out, and removing the extra weight from the cock pit area just freed it up nice.
