Very cool.
I think it would take 4 O/B's to make one run. I watched some guys sea trial one w/twins when I was picking up my first 24' Sonic. The thing was an absolute turd and the potential buyers got out in shock.

Being a deep "V" hull guy my whole life, and a strict proponent of "there is no substitute for cubic inch", I have been an avid boater for years.
This past summer I was in two poker runs and I navigated for a friend with a 30 Spectre Cat with twin outboards.

I was never much of a fan of outboards until then. We kept pace with the big boats at 100mph+ as the Spectre weighs practically nothing with the outboards and the power can be transfered as speed more redily!

That CC having four outboards should produce crazy hp!!
I would love to go for a ride in that thing...

I still like my "V" hull for the comfort and the ammenities but for poker runs and racing outboards are the way to go!

Nice,


But not for that $$$

Most of the pics show only 2 motors, and no info on what the motors actually are. 4 motors are gonna eat some fuel, ask TzRider.

I saw that too. And noticed that the picture of it in the water only had 2 engines. Maybe the guy blew the other engines?

I have gray hair from keeping twins running. I can't even imagine quads.

HMMMM


Push the buttons and go

It only had 2 engines at the time of the first set of pictures

Pricing shoot...I have been meting people buying cc's at 30k with engines apart in boxes needing stringers, transomes and finding the 454's in boxes were in sad shape

Yes it was bought it almost 4 years ago
