So a couple of us decided it was time to start the lake mead seaon off, and my g/f's birthday...Hey that's what she wanted! still working on uploading pics because of course i went with the videos first...The numbers arent quite what i expected, but im not dissapointed! especially for the type of hull im running...if brad wants to chime in he can!

Brad is driving my boat, because i wanted to see what he thought!



Little lopey idle for you folks!



And one more pass

thanks for the prego pic of me nordie...you spoiled the surprise...i didnt tell anyone i was expecting yet.  :banghead:

About Nordies boat.....The motor feels good but the boat feels a bit sketchy at speed so i wasnt airing it out too much and standing on it for too long. He's got a plan to fix it in the works  ;)

perfect day on the water. couldnt have been any better. lets go again this weekend  :thumbup:

Nordie,

Is there a thread about your motor? Or can you share your numbers here in this thread?

There is a thread on that motor! I have no clue on the hp, and i never actually got a good look at the tach, but i believe it was about 57, 5800 rpm, the hull just doesnt seem to handle it well, and it is a very heavy lay up! That is why i am very happy with the numbers we seen this weekend! No rideplate, shoe any of that mumbo jumbo, boat does have a mini droop with 4 degrees of wedge, and a b-cut impeller! Motor is 70 over 454 4 bolt main with heavily ported 990 heads, cam is just above 600 lift, and a solid flat tappet, roller rockers yada yada ya...1050 dominator carb, and 10.3-1 compression! i would probably say when the motor is properly tuned, and im slowly working on it, that it will make north of 500

"North" of 500?? Sounds like Ralphs "60-ish family boat" to me..... :screwy:

Don't let him kid you, 500HP was a LOOOONG ways ago....... >:D

Sounded pretty good in your vid. So if you don't mind my asking if you were around 57-5800 rpm then what was your speed?
