402 SR-1 thread
 
Why don't these things grab more attention obviously they are big heavy and slow and need some serious power and drives to get them going but super classic and fantastic ride.
Anyone one here own "Outrageous" the all black and orange yellow color scheme?

The 402 SR-1 is my favorite model by Formula, bar none. It was designed for the time-is-money sort of person, who wanted a boat with accommodations usually found in a Lear jet of the era. Essentially, a blend of an offshore sport boat and the 1920s commuter yachts used by the Wall St. magnates of the time to quickly convey themselves back and forth from the office to the summer home.

Unfortunately, the 402 was underpowered no matter what engine package was ordered; the largest being the 550 HP KAAMA which was barely adequate.

The 402 needs at least 650 ft. lbs. of torque per engine, at low RPM, to get rolling properly. 540 strokers would be a good start.

I know of a few that came with KAAMA surface drives. The most appropriate stern drive would probably be the Konrad PRS 540 and a racing transmission, given that most specimens were equipped with TRS drives.

I remember Outrageous was listed in the classifieds here a few years back. It was/is a nice piece.

Found these scans while going through some old folders. Shame the article is incomplete.

It shows off the unique design cues of the 402 to great effect, though.

Thanks four your input JP. That is such a cool article you get the feeling of this baby's obvious lack of speed being totally obsolete as it was just so pimp... did other scarabs and cigs have a wet bar swivel chairs and burled wood I think not haha too cool.
If there was a good one around and I was in that game I'd be in!
