Warparty----What power are you running in yours? By the way, The 6 blades look awesome. Kathy has always loved the paint job on your boat. I see you are selling it.....whoever buys it will be getting one he** of a boat......Take care...LT
Not bad! What kind of drives and how are they holding up?

I have 580 cubic inch, 720 hp blower motors. Boat cruises at 50 mph at 3200, 64 at 3600, somewhere around 90 mph top end.

Only problem is I can't keep the drives together. The boat runs excellent though! http://www.lucidideefastboats.com/pages/2/index.htm

My "group" will have at least 5 130+ mph boats they need help crewing. I have not driven mine much in 2 years. The only time I drive is when all of the big HP guys are broken. (Which has been alot lately ) I get more than my fair share of the speed rush

I will save a fortune on fuel with the Skaters, Nor-Techs, and MTI's pushing me around all of the time.
