Not sure Chris, I generally dont get up on Ebay alot. FWIW, the guy I sold it to ( the boat shown in the link ) took the good Derebery motors out of it and dropped in stock 454 Magnums before he had TNT sell / broker it for him.

What kind of power does it take to get a Cafe to 75? I'm guessing 1000hp total, does that sound right?

Thanks,

This boat ran 85 with single carb & supercharged 502's breathing thru CMI Big Tubes when I had it, very light fuel / no cargo / 2 on board, on a Gaffrig speedo anyway. Remember, its a light lay-up boat. Derebery would not give me dyno sheets on the engines because the original owner had them done / paid for them, so I do not know what they dyno'd at, but I suspect they were 575 ish a piece.
