Default Fastest 28 Nordic Heat

Who has some of the fastest 28 Nordics. I would like to get some info on handling etc. I am building a 925 EFI for one and would like to know what to expect. How much power are people putting in them, how fast are they, how do they handle etc?
The only one I know of that is running close to a 100 is Steve Zuckerman. He has said his boat handles very well at speeds, I believe, over 95. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Eddie.

There is a guy here on Gun Lake in Michigan that runs 90. Looks very stable, even out on Lake Michigan. I believe he is running about 750 hp through an IMCO Extreme outdrive. KS

Clay,
I think Bob's boat is a 25' with over 900 hp. I was reading the Nordic section last night.

Thanks Indy and KS. Hopefully Nordicflame will chime in with some info.

I wonder what the highest speed is that a Nordic has gone? Not looking to make this the fastest one ever, just curious.

I was gonna say Steve Zuckerman, but he's already been covered.

The Heat runs very nicely at speeds up to 100. As with any boat you must pay attention
I've only known of one true Heat that has run 103 and that was on the Ohio river I believe. He could not keep a B-Max together however. That was with a Paul Phaff 1200 motor that they had pullied and fueled for power


I built a 548ci ProCharged EFI motor with an R-Tech Supercooler that is pushing a Heat 97+ and running out of prop at Lake Havasu. I have no doubt that it will hit the 100 mark with the right prop. It runs a strong 93 mph here at 5000 feet elevation every day. Appx hp 1000-1100.
It has a Max Machine drive and every time we drop elevation it seems to have a drive issue of some sort. To be expected I guess
925 should put you in the low to mid 90 range. When you get there, ask us about props because I think between us we've tried them all
It will take more than 925 to be the fastest ever. We are only running 6-7 lbs so we have some room to play

I guess my 63.5 MPH top-end doesn't qualify.

If anyone has a motor they're swapping-out in order to push higher numbers, and that can "drop in" to my Heat and push it tp the 80 - 85MPH range, let me know. I might be interested toward the end of this season.
