Contact Raymond Roberts at Double R Performance. He has sold 2 of them in the last few years. On one he did some modifications to the tunnel that increased the speed by several mph ( not a tunnel tab ) and the second one is going into his shop for the same modifications. He can tell you all you will need to know.
His number is 705 321 8783.

I've heard only 7 of them were ever made...is this true?

I've seen Seek and Destroy at home this summer, it rides beautifully for such a big boat

They are huge! I remember seeing one in St Clair 2000 sitting in the water at a restaurant.

Seek and Destroy is serviced and kept at DoubleR and can be bought I think. Friends of mine in Ontario. The hull mods were made to Iceman that went to Michigan.
As Joker said, they are absolutely huge. Great party boat.

Iceman, now seating numbers 11 thru 13. Please move to the back of the bus.

Seek and Destroy is the cut down poker run version. 6 seats and not much else. I ran with the owner in some pretty snotty water at 120 and it was smooth as glass. HUGE is an understatement.

How fast was that boat? I am looking at the one that was built with firestorm turbines.
