A good friend of mine has 2 aluminum Donovan 658 ci. about 800 hp detuned with low compression and modest timing and i want to see if it would be worth my time.... all i want is 95! how much power......... with 6s . help me out guys, i will not go back to a fountain!

Mine with 653's Zuls, running around 1000HP, full staggered #6's, race pleasure layup, with trannys runs 96 to 97 with Jonhnny T. running her, I hit 92 this past summer a few times. It ran 108 with Merc 1000's and crashboxes, at LAKE X.

Guess so....there aren't that many 41's I know of that can top 100.

Maybe give McManus or Saccenti a call and ask them. The boat weighs over 10,000lbs or so....at least that's what I've been told.

Remember, a big part of the exceptional ride in rough water comes not only from the length but the weight.....

Magnum Marks 41 runs close to 90 with 800's but his is a super light race layup with 3 place cockpit and no cabin. Oh yea it has #3's.

anyone know of any for sale without power but possibly with drives or gimbals? i know there are two it the classifieds here but one has nothing but gages and a cabin... and i think they are both slightly over priced... the bare hull doesn't seem too expensive!

its not an apache but kinda comparable as its a straight hull heavy azz boat of same length, were hoping to just barely break 100 with triple 960s in our 1990 42 cig revo, but with trips it prob weighs about 1300 more than apache.
