I'd keep the outboard on it.
NO REGRET$ ... Arguing on the internet is like competing in the Special Olympics / no matter how good you do you're still retarded!!!!!
Are you positive, I think that there was a guy that had three 2.5 mercury drag motors on the back.
Like I said it's kind of pointless without certain details, like which class he was racing in, what kind of v-drives he was competing with, etc... but I am positive he had ONE black (Merc. ?) outboard on the back of it. It was a red hull.
i dont but im all for stuffin shit in her ass to make her go away

in the late 80s at Advantage, the first partycat outboard we built was for a wealthy Texan, I take that back. The first outboard was for Mert Littlefield, of blower fame, the second was for this other guy. We built it with twin OMCs on the back. I don't remember the HP rating, been a long time, but whatever was the biggest engine at the time, that's what we used. Anyway, it ran high 80's. Shoot, that was almost 20 years ago. I would think the record is much higher than 81 today.This was before we had the 'glass' deck on them, they were just a flat deck with railing, canvas and seats but still, that's honkin'.
How fast was he running? See above.
I don't know what ta' tell ya' but check out the link...Looks pretty shady to me.
What's shady about it? I would think 81 in an aluminun 'tri-toon' (not a pontoon) is pretty good. There's a record, or a worlds fastest, for every damn thing built. Boats are no different. Shit, back in the early 70s at Tahiti we had the worlds fastest jet powerd tri hull...didn't mean a thing. It's all marketing.
Wow ! That thing looks like it could use a little weight in the front before it flips over!
The fact that the whole boat isn't touching the water and looks like it's about ta' blow over looks shady ta' me.. I can't image going much faster then that in one without a certified death sentence! And how fast was the worlds fastest jet powered tri-hull?
shady, shakey, sketchy.....call it what you want, I wouldnt want to be on that deck doin 80. An 80mph gust of wind would be enough to toss that beer can over like a sheet of paper.
Check out the bottom pick with those two beauties hangin' off of the back!
It has been a very long day at work. I have been looking at this picture for 5 minutes and I don't see any beauties, beaters but no beauties.
