I looked at the boat before he painted it. Yes, it is Julie's old 47 OL and it was beat when I saw if a few years ago. It needed everything! My guess is that it is still in need of a lot of work! I heard the engines run, and also learned (was told) that above 100 mph was very scary as it has a messed up CG.

That's a camera issue. I got up close to it, only 2 steps. Since the consensus is that this is a 99, maybe they went to the quad step later on. I was curious about how stable a boat would be with the steps that far back. I still have friends that work there, I'll ask them to pass on the existence of OSO to him, he could bring some valuable ASSets to the table

If that is julies old boat it is a 47 OL, which only had a pair of steps in the old days. The CG can be taken care of, which would cure any mis handeling.

That era hull has ran over 140 , smoothly so I would say a little tweaking would straighten out any handeling issues. That exhaust looks "small" must be quiet.

You don't say! I thought they were just scantily clad waitresses.

He owns a few go fast boats, this is just one of em... I believe he still owns a 33 scarab AVS and possibly the 42 scarab with triple 600's, but not sure about that one. I knew he had bought Julies boat but thought he sold it a while ago. One thing, if he is EVER close to you on the water at anything above 20 MPH get AWAY FROM HIM....FAR FAR AWAY.... he just about ran me over twice because he was not paying attention to where he was going, and thought he owned the water. It was not a pretty sight.

Original owner Frank purchased the boat new. He had 3 BIG A$$ rudders on the rear for steering/stabilization. Frank purchased a new Kenworth to pull the 47OL. When BS JS bought the package, Frank purchased a Peterbilt from us to tow his new boat. I was asked to tow the 47 to Daytona when Frank sold it to BS JS but too busy at the time. I have pix later showing the rudders.
