Default Thanks Cathouse Performance Marine & OSO

I just got my 27' Galaxy back from Cathouse Performance Marine in Prattville, Alabama....Cathouse came highly reccommended from OSO and they came through on this build!!

The boat is a 92/93 27' Galaxy Lazer

Before - Stock 330HP 454 w/ Volvo Duo Prop

Now - Cathouse Built 468ci w/177 blower, KE Headers and Bravo 1

The boat ran an honest 50-52mph prior to the trip to Cathouse and today she ran a 67.5 and we are still working on prop'ing the boat... She ran 67.5 with a 26P Bravo 1 Prop @ 4900 rpm, we have lots more rpm's that can be picked up..This was a MAJOR project for Cathouse Performance Marine and the boat was there for over 4 months. The boat is a total sleeper and I'm very happy with the results of this project.....I'm hoping in the end after trying more props and dialing the motor in a little more she will be in the low 70's....

Thanks Cathouse & OSO!!!

That is good to know that there is someone in Prattville that understands. My folks have a place down there in Lake Jordan. I am still trying to get my father to put a blower on his 16.
