im not totally sure. i am aware that the boat had sunk and been sitting for a few years before i bought it from a guy in st louis. it caem with triple 525 hawks from teh factory. i bought the boat obviosuly withotu a test drive. it came with all the rigging but it wasnt in teh boat. the engines were all redone nad i had them dynoed at 640horses and 670 torque each.
i basically replaced everything in the boat, and wut i didnt replace i had redone or powdercoated. i think it had been in illinois before. it used to be kept at Loto.

i going down thursday adn they should be pretty mcuh all done adn ready to go to the interior shop. in theory the boat should be on teh water by the 19th but we'll have to see. were thinking the boat should be running near 90, but the revolution seemed to be a bad hull design from wut ive heard from other OSO'ers. mayb someone wiht a revolution here could help get a good estimate of how fast she should be running.
