All these boats will need big power to get 'em up to 80.
But like i said a pair of 750na w/ konrads would be the way to go. Probably top out around 75ish, but cruise all day at 55-60 in anything you want.

Gawd, that thing is good looking!! Looks like a big 38KV...Both awesome boats!

Tempting.... only problem is, I'd have to sell mine first, and I can pretty much guarantee the market for boats and toys in general will be in the ****ter in Michigan for the next year or three.

Just remember.............everything is for sale always. I also have a 1990 Silverton 34 Express. Very slow but also a wave crusher. And it has all the comfort of home.

Thanks for the kind words, I am very proud of the boat.

Trick, there are quite a few of your parts in the boat.

Exhaewk 40 , thanks. yeah I was surprized myself, we thought that it slowed down . They clocked me at 89.9, makes me wish I had run race gas and took the cover and tools out of it. Hopefully we make it this year but only if I pick up at least 5mph, we are doing some major surgery. the hull was very broken when we made that run.
