Default Any 32 Doug Wrights with big power

has there been any of the i/o DW's with big power. thought there was a 1,000hp + /side in Cali. wondering what kind of numbers it might produce and how stable it would be with 1200-1400hp

Default 32

hi guys, i own the one that was racing with OPA/sbi this year.

the best i saw was 138 when we first got it in the water with no real setup time. all the setup work i did was to run P1, so thats all about accelleration and turn speed.

the boat had a set of pump gas 700 hp drysump BBC's.

you would have trouble fitting big blower motors (psi or something with a intercooler) in there, w/o hatch modifying. a whipple with fuel injection might work.

speed wise ?? we where down to about 4% prop slip. but everything i was running was real small pitch, 1.68 gear and turning 7200 + rpms. 1200 hp - 170??

i had a 32 b model skater and this boat runs better that the skater.

heres a video clip of us at OPA- patchague, ny

thanks for the heads up mike.
