I saw Rick Bowling at the Lauderdale Boat Show, and he told me that he has 'Gone Again', 'Jelly Belly' going 162mph.

WW- can you post pics of yours? Yes we did run pretty well on sunday the water was perfect for the boat and we made a pretty good prop choice. To tell you the truth i run somewhat conservatively because of the open top, i just dont wanna push it like that. Ed has the full encloure that we will be putting on this winter. The boat handles well and really is a pleasure to run in. Wish i would have been able to chat with you in KW. That was cool seeing it on the front page of the paper

Jeff- is that the yellow and white one that was in the classifieds?
Here are a few picks of our rig not near as cool looking as yours but she has done well for us.
With the center pod we don't do a lot of hard turning especially in the rough.

We run 1.24 ratio Drysumps and with a 3 1/2"X dimension she likes 36P 17" 4 blades at about negative 1 or less and usually crabs in the high 140s at 6300 to 6500 rpms a lot of slip..
With 1/2" spacers she likes our 36 1/2p 16 1/2" 5 blades and is on rails into the 150s at 6200+ rpms and then starts to crab ounce again at all trim settings regardless of how I ease into boost or just hammer it.
We have tested 20 sets of props and she still seems to like a big diameter 4 blade props overall.I know you guy's are looking for solid handling over shear speed and your rig looked real good going through turn #1 we would never attempt that with ours.
Good luck next season!

Nice! We spin 29 and 30 inch four blades to stay within P-1 speeds and are turning i think 1:6? wet sump mercs and 750 supercat 510's spinning to about 7400. We dont have a center pod and actually i didnt know they produced them with one. She turns pretty well. I see you spin them in, we are turning out.



Rock On! . . its a Talon nation!!!!

Dave I have to agree with you on this boat - the 377 just plain rocks! Had to work on one for Lake Cumberland marine with the Ilmor package and that thing just drove like it was on rails, almost took the fun right out of it! Has to be one of the best user friendly cats ever built.

Heck even the little 25' talon with an ilmor 625 was a blast and handled perfectly. With both boats I was able to run flat out first time in 'em. If I remember right 104 for the 25' and 115 or so for the 37 but that was a few years ago.
