Thats the one I have had my eye on. I have to talk to my bank to see if they will give me a loan of that size and for how long... before I go looking to seriously. I don't even want to wonder what the insurance will be for that with my record... but hey its just money, I'll might have to sell the powerplay to pay for the beginning cost

would anyone around here be interested in my powerplay?.. I don't know if I can sell it easy or not.. being that is has a custom motor that runs on 110 octane. Is there a market for this boat, or is it better to sell it without power.?

I would Lower Compression so it would run on Pump Gas .My Small Block runs on Pump gas and I still spend a lot on Gas.

Trav, how hard would it be to make it a 92 octane motor? Could you swap out heads, back off timing. etc? Or would that affect other aspects of the motor?

My 31' Stinger is for sale at Lakewideyachtbrokerage.com.
I know it's not a Pantera but it has HP500s and it won't break the bank.

Good luck with the boat search!

To make it run on 93 octane, new pistons and a camshaft I would think. Camshaft required more then 11:1 CR . I have AFR 210's on it now. 68 cc chambers with domed pistons. if your were to try and make it run on 93. It would take pistons then a smaller camshaft and smaller heads, cause with the pistons & cam change the heads would be to big I would think.

nice stinger bro

Get a Saber Traviss, you won't be disappointed plus the factory will only be a couple hours away if you have any questions or need their services. There was a really nice one out in California, might still be for sale. Last price I saw was under 30k. It has twins with high hours, perfect for you since you'll build the crap out the engines anyway!
