Get ready guys!!

The first 32 pleasure deck with outboards will hit the water in two weeks.

Loan Shark poker run version.

Special thanks to Doug Wright, Peter Harding of Love Muscle fame and Johnny T from TNT for the new horses.


The boat will have consumer friendly 300xs motors. After Brett Anderson from BBlades builds me some new props the boat should see 120.


We will post some pics when I pick it up.

The boat is done and looks bad ass.

Ryan Beckley will finish the graphics and post some pics tommorow.

Unfortuately the new motors only turn 6150 so a true top speed number will not be available until I get a set of 34-35 wheels. All I have are 31 3 blades which push her to 104 with 100 gal fuel and then the motors actually go into gaurdian mode and slow down to 5 grand.

I am confident based on the acceleration to 100 plus that the boat will see a big number. Time will tell.

Got a set of stock 15x34's on the limiters at 112. When BBlades is done with the props we should see some great speeds.


I know that their is more speed in the convertible.

I ran all day with Gary Ballough and we used only 60 gallons I don't think the boat went under 100 with GB on the sticks.




DPT will post some pics.

Well,

With 35 hours the boat is averaging 20gal/hr with an average speed of 87.5 according to my GPS and smartcraft.

Top speed of 112 but the motors are on the rev limiters. Stock merc props 15/34. Brett at BBlades will customise them after Miami for me to get some more speed.


Pretty cool for an outboard boat.
