The yellow and white one was built for Ron Chiovitti, a big banana importer here in Toronto. It originally sported triple second Effort v8 omc's. It was rerigged with tripple mercs and runs 109 now I believe. Its a center pod boat.
Cloke on here had a open 37 centerpod boat, United Nations that was originally rigged with triple merc outboards but he converted it to twin 900 poker run motors and wet 6's. Ran in the 130's somewhere.
The old Hott Knots marina boat, Vanishing Point was a open top canopied no pod boat with 900', and dry 6's that ran 137.
Borderline is an open, centerpod boat with 750 NA sterlings and wet 6's that runs 120ish I believe.

These were all early 90's hulls built by Talon.

Here is one my father had for half a summer.

KE 675 with B-Max drives. GPS tattletale pegged past 120mph.

It was nice and smootth. Real stable at 106. Unfortunately we only got to put about 5hrs on it in 6 months. After 2 blown motors (same part each motor) and 2 locked up drives, he had enough and got rid of it.

I believe this and one other shared the same paint scheme. There was a very small green stripe that set them apart and power too

This ones in Santa Barbara. It used to be the "Holiday Inn" supercat. John Peterson has it now, him and I ran it in PX (POPRA) a few times. It has the blower motors from the "Conseco" boat.
Maybe for sale?
Let me know if you're interested, I'll get you his #.

My buddy bought this boat and it now lives in Discovery Bay in California Delta. He has since put #6 Drives and upgraded motors to 850hp, handles great.

Thanks for the info, I have tried to keep track of it and the last place I saw it was Pier 57. Glad he enjoys it. My dad loved the boat, but I don't think he was ready for the blower motors and maintenance. I always thought #6 were they way to go on it.

Rock On! . . its a Talon nation!!!!
I noticed that your boat has a slight "v" in the tunnel instead of the pod. Think that it was modified?

i dont think it was modified but i could be wrong. There is no evidence of it ever having a pod from the inside. Yes it is a slight V the way back. Wonder what the breakdown is to 377's that had it and ones that didnt. The only 377 i have ever seen in person was Ed's. Seems there were several different deck configurations to. I do like the canopy ones.
