Default 31 awesome OB conversion

Hey folks

Picked up a 31 awesome hull and trailer locally for a decent deal. Currently i/o. Considering converting to twin outboards. Would like to see 75 mph. Nothing crazy. My options are to put it back with 454 mags and bravos or outboards on jackplates.

Ive read so.e guys were only seeing 70 mph with trip 300x....tgis sounds ridiculous to me because tbe old chris cats and shadows ran 100+ with trip 2.4s...

Whats the deal?

You might want to ask that question on the chriscat facebook page as well! Lots of experienced owners !

I have a friend w/a 33' Warlock that has everything from twin turbines to twin O/Bs.
W/twin Merc 300 2 stroke O/B's it ran mid 70's.
It now has twin 225 or 250's and runs high 60's.

I think I do.
Ill have to dig.

He still has but has kinda become his rat, sand bar boat.
Forgot too, he also tried a turbo Cummins w/an ancient #3 (??) drive in that boat.

Cool dude and like me, he asks all the experts then does it anyhow 😉

I have a 97 31' Awesome Cat rigged with triple Mercury Pro Max 300X. I can easily cruise at 75-80 and top speed has hit 105 (not by me). My best was 98 but certainly does not struggle to get past 70.
Just saying.
