all big numbers, all great boats.

aint no MTI 39 going to beat a 388 Skater ever
Sorry I was so late on this thread, been riding dirt bikes to much I guess.
Are you crazy or something. Those were little ole cooking motors, 1075 mercs. You know us MTI guys like that factory stuff and pump gas.I ran the boat in Havazoo with Randy and we were second to the first card stop. CRC was first.
Also to answer your other question about any MTI's over 180, CRC ran 198 that thursday.

Freedom US1 ran 147.2 this weekend with two speed trannies.Not bad for open cockpit piston powered 46. 150 + shouldn't be a problem.
