One thing that can be said about Outerlimits is that they have good factory support at some of the poker runs. I have even seen them help out other boat builders at events.

Ok, so the 39 Ol runs 96-98. Joes boat runs 90 and he said he was smoked by a 39 with same power. So the ol is realistically 3-5 mph faster than a 39 Cig. Or possibly run the same speed with same power. And still WAAAAY more coin.

Call your dealer, you would be suprised how mutch scratch they are trying to get for a new 39 cig. The costs are alot closer than they should be.

There is a reason why Cigarette's sales numbers have fallen rapidly. A new 39 Ol is in the low 500,000.00 price range, and a cig is right there with them.

Lucky Strike just hit upwards of 93 MPH (after new rigging) I hear in his 38' Race lay-up TS. But, yes... in any event ----- the OL is faster.

Joe, those are awesome numbers! You have a 38 TS TG with 525efi's correct? A 42 Fountain which has a inwater hull length of around 38.5 feet will do around mid 80's with 525efi's....so the 38 Cig blow away the same sized Fountain I guess?
Thanks

THE TRAILER IS ALSO ONE OF A KIND AND I CAN'T BE'S GIVIN IT UP FO NUTTIN. I WILL DELIVERY IT ON THE BACK OF MY 1972 FORD PINTO FOR A REASONABLE FEE (MAYBE A LOOK-SEE AT YOUR SISTER OR A BOTTLE OF YOUR BEST SHINE) TO YOUR SLIP OR GARAGE OR? ANYWAY BACK TO THE DESCRIPTION OF THIS SPEED DEAMON...ITS GOT A KOOL CUSTOM PAINT JOB (BY TAOD "THE ART OF DISASTER") THAT SHINES UP REAL PURTY, AND THE INTERIOR MATCHES ALSO WITH PLEATHER CUSHIONS AND TUCK AND ROLL BISQUIT SQUARED BED...THIS BOAT WAS BUILT BUY A GREAT BUILDER THAT WORKED FOR CIGARETTE (NOT THE BOAT CO. BUT THE CLEAN UP BOY AT BENSON & HEDGES) BACK IN THE EARLY DAYS AND IT HAS NEVER SEEN SALT WATER (FOR FEAR IT'D GO OFF AND SINK) UNTIL I GOT IT..BUT NOT FOR LONG IT WAS BUILT IN 2001 AND GOT THE VIN #'S IN 2003 FROM MY BUDDY BUBBA WHO RUNS THE CHOP SHOP DOWN THE STREET. I HAVE A CLEAR ALABAMY VIN PAPERS FOR IT (OR WHATEVER STATE YOU WOULD RATHER HAVE). IT WAS REGISTERED IN 2003 AND GOOD UNTIL 2005. HE MADE THIS BOAT FOR HIMSELF, SO HE TOOK THE TIME AND DID IT RIGHT. AT THE SAME TIME MADE IT LOOK GOOD TOO WITH PARTICAL BOARD AND BALSA WOOD. ITS GOT A VERT STRONG CONSTRUCTION AND IS BUILT RIGHT, THE GUY IS A TRUE ARTIST WHO MASTERED IN THE CUSTODIAL ARTS. HE BUILT THE BOAT, DID THE INTERIOR AND PAINTED IT ALL HIMSELF IN THE BACK YARD OF HIS 3RD WIFES SISTER'S HUD HOME! THERE IS A BED IN THE BOW FOR SNUGGLING WITH ALL YOUR KIN, AND 2 COUCHES WITH A CABINET AREA CUT OUT FOR A TV/DVD PLAYER WHICH IS NOT THERE BECAUSE SISSY SUE HOCKED IT FOR AN 8 BALL. THERE IS AN OLD VHS AND COMPASS THAT WORKS (I THINK) JUST NO TV THERE IS SOME COSMETIC WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE FINISHED...CUSHIONS AND THE BEDS AND SOME SPEAKERS NEED TO BE FITTED AND INSTALLED ALL SIMPLE STUFF, ALL IN THE BOW AREA BY THE BED...OH, AND THE DELAMINATED HULL AND HOLE IN THE BOTTOM. IT HAS 2 SEATS IN THE FRONT AND A BENCH THAT HOLDS 4 PEOPLE OR TWO BIGGUNS, SO A TOTAL OF 7 PASSENGERS (I NEVER FINISHED GRADE SCHOOL). IT SLEEPS 2 COMFORTABLY THE SEATING AREA NEEDS SOME TLC/CLEANING FORM OUTDOOR STORAGE AND DEAD BODY SMELL BUT OVERALL ITS IN GOOD SHAPE. A FEW MONEY SHOTS FROM COUSIN BOBBIE JOES HORRIN DAYS BUT THOSE SHOULDN'T BE A PROBLEM. THE MOTORS ARE TWIN BLACK MAX 200 MERCS THAT RUN REAL STRONG...WHILE CRANKING OVER. THEY ARE MOUNTED ON A HEAVY DUTY ALUMINUM MOTOR PLATE (PAINTED SILVER WOOD REALLY) THAT EXTENDS THEM OUT 2 FEET!! THAT GIVES YOU 35' OF LENGTH. SISSY BETH ALWAYS SAID SIZE MATTERS. FOR QUICK PLANNING...THESE MOTORS COST $12G'S NEW EACH (BUT I CAN GET'EM FROM JOE SH!T THE RAG MAN FOR UNDER 5K), BOTH HAVE NEW FORD WATER PUMPS DONE AT THE END OF LAST SEASON. LONG SHAFT HEAVY DUTY OFF SHORE LOWER UNITS GOOD FOR TROLLIN' FOR CAT FISH, WITH LOW WATER PICK UPS, SOLID MOUNTS DRILLED EXHAUST, AND STAINLESS STEEL PROPS THAT ONLY HAVE A FEW DENTS. THE PROPS ALONE WERE $80 EACH OVER ALL THE BOAT HAS SOME WEAR AND TEAR ON IT LIKE MY MOMMA BUT LIKE I DONE TOLD YA SHE'S A LOW MILAGE BEAUTY. BUT ALL IT NEEDS IS SOME TLC, WHICH IS SOMETHING I CANT GIVE IT RIGHT NOW BETWEEN MY SIX SISTERS AND 13 COUSINS. SO I RATHER YOU BUY IT AND ENJOY IT LIKE I'D DONE. ITS A NICE SIMPLE PROJECT FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS THE TIME AND WANTS TO CRUISE IN STYLE. I ONLY USED THIS BOAT ONE TIME LAST SEASON, SO MY LOSS IS YOUR GAIN HERE... COME AND LOOK IN PERSON MY NAME IS NICK."
Did some OSO'r put this up just to razz Steve or is there really a moron like that on e-bay listing that boat? I can't believe this is a real e-bay ad.
