You can't blame it on the hull design if you are having power reliability issues....
Very nice!!! Not blaming the hull at all. So far it hasn't been the best release for a new Outerlimits product. At least not one that Mike should be happy with and it seems like he's trying to solve that.

It's the risk you take with any of the exotic powerplants and of course any new boat that has yet to be dialed in.

I am sure that the engines were not the only thing to blame! I heard that the boat had its fair share of issues also! And I wonder how do we know that the boat handles like a dream if its never had any run time??

Bill should switch to the Chief twin turbo motors in Golddigger, Tommy has those motors dialed in and are lasting, unlike the big power KE's

According to Mike it does have run time on the boat & motors. There is a couple bugs to be worked out with the motors. All this should be expected with a fairly new thought process & huge power on top of that. Not sure where your getting your info from but mine came from Mike. Maybe you've been talking with the old guy that lives in the same state I do & has a huge comb-over.

Good luck- awesome boat and hope it works out (dare I say SOON!!!)

That pretty much sums it up. Looks like a lot of time and money invested.

Everyone is throwing around this 200mph number like its no big deal. There is only ONE boat that has consistanly and safely run over 200, and no one mentioned it yet. I find that pretty interesting.
