The two boats that I remember were "Double Trouble" and "Black Cloud", which had HUGE power, and ran some really big numbers. I personally saw Double Trouble run as solid 110+. Like you said, if there are any issues, the Arneson guys would be my first call.
    I believe this was the first ilmor/arneson package (at least for Hustler) and like I said it wouldn't take much to make it work. The boat in the pics is the one I remember. it was in the showroom at LCM so we couldn't run it but I do know it had some handling problems originally and the sales guys flat out couldnt sell it because of this. All in the setup, looks like someone (with the right knowledge) took the time to work it out. Hell it could have been as simple as the wrong props.

    Then again maybe the LCM boys were getting spoiled with all the Ilmor Outerlimits coming thru the doors!!!

    Rockin' boat with killer package! Have fun guys!
