I misspoke earlier, she's a 35 not a 38.

The motors where built by Tim Morgan here in CA. Hull dry weight is under 3500lbs.

I've never heard of a 35' weighing anywhere that light! That is pretty impressive #'s, --- but have to wonder about reliability with a set -up like that
Hats off to people that think outside the box and make it work.

That's an un-rigged bare hull #.

Yeah, The term "SBC" was used loosely....they might have some aftermarket blocks with 450+ci.

Depends what you're towing it with

That appears to be a Cafe pleasure hull. 3500# might be shy a bit.

If you guys haven't seen the info about Raylar inc, in Ca. They are producing a 450 in all aluminum sbc, that is supposed to be pumping 550hp, 535ft/lbs torque and weighing in at 543lbs, ready to bolt in. Also, they are tuned to run on 89 octane. I talked to them at the Miami boat show. Supposed to be testing in a 28-32' hull in April.
I wonder about the reliability, too.

500-700 hp out of an "SBC" is a lot!!
Power like that is OK for drag racing but to run like that and push a boat.....longevity is not in their vocabulary.

Heard a line in a radio ad that went "Durabilty depends on longevity".
I think that appies in this case too.

450ci is not that small...
isn't the 454 a big block?

what determines if its a big or small block?
