Buy a fishing boat, go 80, then go out and drink beer and haul chicks on the stinger!

My guess is you could freshen the motors and put blowers on your 454's and with fairly mild boost get 550-575hp and you should be near 70mph. Be happy with that and save alot of money and broken parts.

BTW, I'm happy with my blower motors except fuel consumption when running under boost.

I will trade you boats straight up less drives and power.. then 80 should be easy for you with around 500 a side

I really like this boats style itís a custom, someone has changed the hole top deck looks kind of like a formula, would like more info about its origin. This thing looks like a 200k boat to me and thatís what matters. As far as budget? No its probbly not smart to put 50 or 60 grand into it so.....
Hereís what I and my motor builder propose to do build 2 496 n/a, dart pro 1 cnc heads, around 10.2 compression. They guarantee 625-650 [email protected] 5000. And will stand behind it!
This should be a pretty reliable combo I could afford to go to 575 darts or 598s but its probably not worth the extra 20 to 25 grand for the extra 10 mph and reliability go's out the window also I would surely blow drives. I will have Bam or Huber do the tranny. I will most likely use the TRS drives this year and be gentile and get konrads later. What do you think? I live with 65to70 for now save the money for fuel Ha Ha Really enjoy your feedback and will keep you posted on the progress, Im also redoing the cabin area and wanting to spruce up the gel coat.

I had a friend with an eighties 39' Cigarette that had n/a 700hp motors in it and that boat could barely hit 70. Big heavy wave crusher similar to yours.
What is the weight of new boats that size?

Older cigs were awesome boats, but were not fast. Stingers, at least the 39's were 22Deg hulls. 22Deg in theory should be faster than a 24deg, or 25 deg hull, just not handle the rough as good. All in theory of course. Lots of other factors.

I tell, that boat looks an awful lot like a Formula 419 SR1 from the 1990 era.
