Hey Joe,

Diesel? That's rare. What engine and hp? What speeds did you see with that setup?


Nice boat, love the old school-style!!

Mange,

Old style 7.3L Navistar, PC enegine with turbo about 350 hp at3,600- 3,800 rpm's. This was before we understood OD gears so it ran 1:1 and like everyother diesel boat she ran 65 mph and that was it no matter what props.

When I first bought the Twister I had mixed feelings about the deck BUT it has grown on me in a big way. I've owned a number of 24x7's and I can honestly say that this little hull is one of the best...runs awesome and handles great. Attached is a pic of my daughter driving a few weeks ago.
Habana Joe what model name was the Monza you had? Monza made 2 different decks for this hull.

Very clean! Do you have any interior shots or is that still a work in progress?

Greetings and thank you all for your nice comments. The boat has the cabin empty because we are using it for racing for now. But I have shots of the seats made custom by a friend of mine. The backseat comes off for racing. No wood in any seats, all composite materials.
