Default Thanks for the info

I'm going to check out that site you attached. Sounds like your boat runs real good. I got the boat because I wanted the best rough water ride I could get in a 27 foot boat. I hope it handles the LOTO trash decently. Its a heavy beee och the cummins diesel works a bit with it in tow. Looking to get a hold of Fastboat 269 as he has one too.

Its interesting that the hull is still being used. That says something right there.

Default I have an 86

269. Had mine since Feb 2008. Great boat.

Stock set up with twin 350's and Alpha One's. Changed out one lower so I had counter-rotating props - no need to even touch the wheel to keep going straight since.

Use it mostly in the Potomac but take it out in the Chesapeake about 40% of the time. Super stable, dry, comfortable boat.

The fastest I have gone is 63 (gps speed) and it still had a little left in it.

Only complaint - no cup holders topside. I mean, c'mon. Really?

So with twin small blocks and alphas, what will this boat do for top speed?

Default Stock speed

I have seen GPS 55 and that was with 4 adults 1 child and heavey load of fuel. I have seen 63 on the speedo. I would say the boat was going around 58 - 60 gps. I'm running 21p cleavers. Thinking about changing for next year maybe going to Mirages/ Rev 4's / or Enertias' just depends.. Then again I may just pick up something used on Ebay or something.

You guys with the 223's are you seeing your speeds with a GPS or on the speedo? I have a buddy that has a 223 with a healthy BB and Bravo and the best he has seen is 59 mph. He has tried Hydromotive, Mirage, and a Vengence prop. What type of prop and pitch are you guys running? He is planning on building a 496 but everyone tells him the hull isn't made to go very fast. He is currently running a Gen V 454 with 8.75-1 comp with some old Sonny Leanord aluminum heads a comp cams flat tappet cam. He doesn't turn it over 5,000 rpm.

My 223 does an honest 58 to 59 full load of fuel and 3 people on gps.

Light I have seen 62 and only once. 23" mirage plus.

Thanks Loose connection thats about what his does. I don't think this hull will run 65-70 without alot of HP. I told him about this thread and he said the best its ever done with low fuel, going with the current, and a tail wind was 62.

Just picked up an 87 269 condurre on ebay. Twin roller 350's, was told around 300hp per side. First run I managed to turn 25p mirages 4800rpm. No gps speed yet. Need to do some drive and steering repairs before I get it back out. Great riding boat.[ATTACH=CONFIG]527669[/ATTACH]

Very nice looking boat -- of course I have a lot of prejudice towards Cobalt's-- except that pontoon boat they just introduced-- YUK!!!

safe boating
