I know what you mean SummerO, Sonny Leonard is THE man! 1200.8 HP @6000rpm's. A typical day of boating for my wife and I is to cruise about 45 minutes down to this place that we hang out, raft up for the day with friends and cruise back up river. The engines that are in the boat are made to run out front in poker runs and are in need of refreshes after 75-100 hours. I just can't justify that. They have 15 hours on them now. Boating for us is for relaxation and I want engines that I can just change the oil in and tune up once a year and not have to remove the valve covers for 300-350 hours!!

Don't get me wrong, I would love to run these engines for a year or two, but I'm not afraid to admit that I really can't afford them!!

Thanks Steve,
It's an '88, just like my Bullet, that has been completely redone. Started out as a #3 drive light layup Kevlar hull with 750 hawks from the factory.

New paint by Dave Hunter.
Sonny Leonard Quad rotor 588's
#6 Dry sumps that I think were set up by JT
1450 Huber Kryptonite Trannies
New interior and dash
All rigging work done and bottom blueprinted by Art Lilly

The boat runs 109 as it's currently set up so it must have been dialed in right!!

It will be named "Old School II"
