27' Magnum 2 x 454's horsepower? 450-500 hp, never dyno-ed. 27" Mirage props with added cup-leading edge thinned, very little slippage (drives are deep compared to today's boats). 5200-5300 rpm 86 mph last Sunday (new cylinder heads have helped this year) really trimmed out. It will run 84 mph any day, flat water and full of fuel. aka: 'the Hairy Canary." Keep us honest, give us run if you see us....
