still looking for boat to put them on .

Russ, it's a 29' Lightning Powerboats Center Console. These guys also build the race cats like the Hooter boat.Originally Posted by RLW

Thanks for the reply. These guys are on screamandfly.com , selling their wares. I was a lways curious as to the fit and finish of their product.
They seem to have the performance numbers down.
The owner of the company lives in my neighborhood. I did not know this until our neighborhood had a little get together poker run a couple of weeks ago. I ended up at the same table as this boat at the lunch stop and I told him how good his boat looked in the water and it was flying. I was on Driven1's 47 Fountain and we were going 80-85mph and this 29 CC was keeping up with us!!!! That is when I found out he builds them. the boat seems real nice and he can build them simple or plush. That is about all I know.

those lightning's look pretty fast with twinn 250xs on the back 80 mph +...not bad for a 29 foot + bracket
Mike not 80+ just 80!
still pretty fast for a fish boat with 2 eggbeater's at 29 f.t.
The boat if set up right will do a close 90.Originally Posted by FeverMike
The fuel burn on my 250EFI's = 29gal/hr at full throttle per motor & at 45/50mph cruise around 15-18 depending on the water. Actually not bad if you go easy on the Throttles. Have you looked at the E-tecs? Merc will be probaly a couple mph faster but the E-tec has a great warraty & they appear to be holding up.
the 250 e-tech sound nice but i herd so many mix reviews on them maybe by the time im ready to buy something they will have the small kink's worked out ..
do you know anybody that has the e-tech with good results?
