Default Eliminator w/Cummins Diesel

We had alot of good talking on here about the Eliminator with the Cummins in it. They had their first test runs and then went to the boat show. I thought there was going to be more testing, etc, etc, etc - what happened that was a great project???

I hope just another diesel project down the tubes.......

I believe the numbers were less than [email protected] testing was to be done...but until the diesels can get even close to the BB's numbers, the gas motors will be the choice. I went through this on my 43 Nor-Tech which is 3' longer than the Eliminator and 4k more pounds..we achieved 74mph, and that was very good for what it was..I just wanted 80mph...Jeff

The boat is 44'8" plus the Aluminum swim platform. So ..close to 47'...Also if I remember reading the 43 Scarabs were just under 43'..so that's how I came up with a round about 3' additional feet. Jeff

Maybe i missed it....but there wasnt a roost. That boat would make an awesome private yacht.

You know....thats an acceptable number IMO. They knew, going into this, that it wasnt going to be a 90mph rig. Im sure it can cruise all day at 55-60 mph w/o stressing a thing. Yes its more $$$ than gas motors that will duplicate the performance, but your paying for equipement that will last a lot longer.

It's about 75 feet behind the boat. Your right about it making a good private yacht though between the two decks theres more square footage than some peoples houses.
