Nice boats and seen them both in Miami 2014. The couple that had the Chief (owners) built were very nice and took a lot time to talk about whatever you wanted to.

Just asking how many hours are on the new Chief boat currently as I would think the engines are still being broken in so true top speed is still unknown ?

2.0 MPG I am sure that they Arneson's also have a lot to do with that number.

Warpath has more hours on it than the pleasure boat. It's raced overseas, Key West, etc. The pleasure boat had a linkage issue keeping it from full throttle that is now fixed. It's time to test some props when it warms up.

The V10's drop down to 5 cylinders at idle, no super chargers, run on pump gas and make 725hp.

Warpath is a crash box surface drive boat. They are two different animals. Both handled LOTO slop very good. If I was going to pleasure boat 90%+ of the time I'd go with the Ilmor drive boat. Docking Warpath can be challenging if used only for a pleasure boat. Both boats have the same hull design.

So it's the crash box difference? Wonder how it would be if both had a velvet drive?
