Liberty hull
« on: August 22, 2014, 08:21:06 pm »
Hello
I picked up a '79 Liberty some time ago and I could have put it in the water but decided to go thru the whole thing. My question is...why don't I see or hear of any liberty boats? is there something i should know? Are they not a good hull? Don't know where to get anymore info on them.  The hull and stringers are in good shape. Just thought you guys could provide me with more info or advice before proceeding
Thanks

I own a liberty. There's a handful of guys on this site who own them as well. Not a ton were made but great hulls. Jack from MPD did the research and development for them. Hes a goldmine of information if you need any. The liberty hull (jacks current compjet) holds the kilo record currently. I believe he did 113mph top speed and set it at 108mph.....all within the class limits of a NA 515 cubic inch or less motor, fuel only.

What kind of speed are you guys getting out of yours with a mild 454/460? I have an outboard powered version, a comparison on performance would be interesting.

At 5k rpm, GPS said 72. I have another 1800 rpm til rev limiter kicks in.  As I race it I won't disclose what that is... But it scared me.  Its a 468cid with a lot of compression.  But I believe the power comes from the orange paint on the block.

Small word this is so I was on insta gram looking at boats and seen a comment about six street mafia so I ask what it represented  so in response I get a message from a new person that says he owned the boat that I just bought back in 2007 gave me the whole story and all the mods and a cool time line about the boat turns out Tom Papp among a few others jack at mpd have done some of the work on this boat and this boat has been terrorizing Blythe  for years and ended up in trucken magazine back in 2004. Talked to the guy for about an hour  said he's been to some of the performance regattas at avi back in 04  05 and and said he was one of a small group that started the Tom Papp memorial  cool dude glad I got a call from him

Small word this is so I was on insta gram looking at boats and seen a comment about six street mafia so I ask what it represented  so in response I get a message from a new person that says he owned the boat that I just bought back in 2007 gave me the whole story and all the mods and a cool time line about the boat turns out Tom Papp among a few others jack at mpd have done some of the work on this boat and this boat has been terrorizing Blythe  for years and ended up in trucken magazine back in 2004. Talked to the guy for about an hour  said he's been to some of the performance regattas at avi back in 04  05 and and said he was one of a small group that started the Tom Papp memorial  cool dude glad I got a call from him
