Default the rumor is true!

I put a deposit on a 42' Tiger while in Miami. I think we spoke about it, it's the Tiger with Merc 900SC and #6's. The engines are at Innovation right now being checked out (valve job). They dyno'd the motors yesterday - 907HP! Should be plenty....
The boat only has 62 fresh water hours and shows like new.

I'm going back to Miami next week to sea trial the boat - which should be a blast. I'll probably stay for a week or so and do some boating before I have the boat brought back to Cali.

Do you remember how Nauti Kitty had the intercoolers rigged? Did you have separate water pick-ups and sea strainers for the intercoolers, or did they tap off of the Bell Housing to feed the intercoolers?

Hope all's well with you.

Ken

Kenny-

What do you mean expensive? Isn't it normal to pay $240 for each bottle of Grey Goose, and $10 per Red Bull?

I'll post some pics when I get back from Florida. I spoke to Tres Martin (great guy), we're going to take the boat to "Lake X" and do the sea trail there and test out some props - which will be cool - (I've always wanted to see that place).

I guess if you have Mercury power there is no charge to take the boat there for testing? (You just pay for it up front when you buy their stuff).

Pics to follow......
