But dont bring this topic up to the haters, it puts them in a tail spin.

Doc, you have those original drawings?
An interesting Fact.

Guess who still OWNS the mold?

Baja

There is a rummor that next years poker run boat could be....?

Sorry that is a secret.

The only one I know for sure was last years 40 Poker Run boat with 850's.

Let's face it, a true deep ve hull does not work with staggered engines. With it needing a lot of bow lift the staggered setup works against you.

That is correct. I have heard a lot about it, but never seen any pictures.

I hear it did not work well either.

Our very own OSO buddy "High Tide" owns Baja 40 Outlaw hull #2.

Actually some could argue that it is hull #1 since the first one did not work and went to the shredder.

He has triple 500 EFI's that have been worked some and is running in the 90's.

VERY nice boat that you will see in the Tampa area.

A little history regarding the Baja 36 Outlaw.

Do you know what #1 company built the mold that the 36 came from?

CIGARETTE

Yes, Cigarette built the mold and from what I understand never went into production with a 36. Then the mold was purchased by Force 10. Shortly after the plant burnt down and the mold was outside and survived the fire.

It was sold to Baja and the 36 Outlaw was born!
