It's in the Des Moines/ Ankeny Ia. area.

I know the guy that owns it.....doesn't use it much.

It originally had 600SC's in it.

Somewhere in a barn in Texas is a 36 Outlaw called "B36" that was built in 1997 or 1998 as a race boat.

Anyone have any additional information or pictures of this boat?

______________________________________

Okay UPDATE:

Jeff Aker has the scoop....

It was built as a race boat. No cabin and only stand up bolsters. I have all the specification sheets at home. I also have the original build sheet that was supplied by BAJA and this boat was specified as a race boat. It has staggered 510 C.I. Hawk naturally aspirated engines running to SSM IV drives.

I also have some photos taken of this boat. It ran in the high 80's and crushed the waves and it was extremely competitive on the turns. It was built for and competed in the former APBA "B" class. It was advertised at one time in Powerboat magazine along with the Poker Run boat with the triple 800SC Mercruisers. Both boats shared the same paint scheme.

I remember when that boat was on the used market a few years ago. #6's and a sweet paint job. Nice boat!

Ref. the 40 Outlaws with taggard motors.....Any built with non staggard but only twins?

Like I said on the other thread....I have the PBM ad on my wall in the garage showing the B36 boat racing next to the 420 stepped pace boat....cool ad. I'll try to snap a pic of it when I'm home.

Yes LOTS.

There are several on the market now including a very nice one on FastBoats.Com for sale with 575's.

I've seen them with twin 500 EFI's and twin 525's. Those packages are a little slow in my opinion.

Lots of storage space in the engine compartment!

Another Plus from BAJA.

Full two year warranty including Engine & Outdrive.

Baja Marine is IQ certified by Mercury MerCruiser®

What does this mean?

This propulsion-installation quality certification program brings a new standard of excellence in customer service and product quality to Baja owners. It is the first and only comprehensive manufacturer-installation certification program in the boating industry. To become certified, Baja Marine worked with Mercury engineers to review Baja’s design and installation processes and implement Lean Six Sigma processes and training programs for increased manufacturing efficiency and world-class process control on the boat plant floor.

And what does this mean to you?

All new Baja owners who purchase after the certification date will receive a two-year Mercury limited engine warranty on their new MerCruiser-powered Bajas. So you can go faster, farther and longer with extra confidence!

But, I remember seeing the one your talking about
( the one w/6's) for sale somewhere recently.
