Glassdave,

There's a 20' Cig in Cincinnati w/a Blackhawk. Hear it's pretty quick. Owned by Phil Lipshutz's brother.

Locally there is a black 85 or 86 Formula 242 with a single kaama drive. I don't think he was ever happy with the setup he had.

I've seen a few used Blackhawks around at reasonable prices. I'd heard some pretty negative comments related to skeg length and steering carachteristics, but frankly I don't know crap about them.

Michael, sorry we didn't hook up while I still had my 24! I hope your search is going well!

I love the Arneson on my 24! At some point I would like to consider them for my Pantera. It's alot of fun to drive and the rooster tail is sweet.


BTW
The 24 is going up for sale

We converted a 21' jet boat to Arneson when I was young. It had a single big block with twin Gale Banks turbos. The boat picked up 20 MPH overnight. It did begin to slightly pull to one side above 90+ MPH. We got use to it, but never stayed wide open very long.

Its all in the set up. My Daytona handles like its on rails at speed. I wouldn't want to make any panic turns at 90 plus because the skeg could lose contact with the water if a sponson hooks though. You get a feel for where the "edge" is after some seat time and learn to drive it there. Slower speed corners would scare the pants off ya. It will slam you into the side of the seat and just track right thru the corner.

A buddy of mine was pretty down on them. I've never even seen them in person. I was thinking about it for my old 24 Pantera. Like I said, I don't know crap!

there was a 38 powerplay with pulse drives last year wasn't there?

As far as single engines go, there's a turbine 30y2k superboat turbine being built now with a single sage drive. And (I forget his name) a guy with a 280 velocity just put an arneson on the back and last I heard he was really happy with the performance.
