Well She is That, Fast, and handles the water great . I tested her in Miami, and took her about 100 miles out. Took the 3 and 4 ft waves great. I can't want to try Her at LOTO. Allen

Thumbs up Don't Apologize, It's a True Offshore!!!

Dude,
Don't make any apologies, a sportfisherman is a true offshore, they go out while all us sissies are at the dock! My dream boat is a Buddy Davis 50, I'd give all the go fasts in the world to have those big smelly Caterpillars and a fighting chair-OOOOOOOOHHHHHH Baby!

Curtis, given the performance of the Arneson/Yanmar Package, which has performed faster than the 500EFI/Bravo Package, I'd bet that the 36' would easily break 100, if not 110 without the need for troublesome transmissions.

Fuel Mileage would be great also! Low Maintenance, 5 yr warranty on engine… hmmm…

Cool!!! You will be the tallest boat at LOTO on Mem. Day. You get to fly the OSO banner!! LOL!!! Now, we just have to make an OSO banner....

I'll bet it has a big anchor too......nice place for us guys with small anchors (read: go fast boats who don't like the extra weight) to tie up!!!!!

See you at LOTO !! 66 days and counting!!!

I would want to stay with the 6 drives, the multispeed trannies would help keep the motors in the torque range.

You would only need 1 prop, rough or smooth, just change gears.

Dude, you're gonna change the name. Right??? WHEN you do this, make sure you follow the procedure to the letter!!!! Lutzparty can help you with it if you need...he did it to his boat already this year.

Default Diesels - high speed?

Hi!

Check out Phantom 34 Classic with twin Yanmar 300HP = 69-70 mph top speed. Cruise all day long at 55 mph consuming 16 gallon per hour. Not bad! And you can tweek 50 HP extra per engine without probems running 74 mph .......

Average life per engine 15.000 hrs...

Cheers, Toffen G

Default Motor hours

I talked to a guy that has the same motors that I have and he has over 5000 hrs and has not even touched the things. That is the way to go ......Allen
