I cant pay 100k for a boat, but I can build one that compares. Basically, I wanted the smallest boat I could get with twins. People have said not to worry about the blistering, its easilly fixed with a dremel and some epoxy??? I don't mean to sound so 'green'. I have 25 yrs boating experience, but always in sea rays...never a real speed boat, so I REALLY appreciate any/all input you guys give me.... thanks agn, and any opinions on the blisters??
So you were going to replace the Corvette motors it came with with different Corvette motors? I'm not following that one??

OK so how fast is to fast. No offence but its a st of small blocks. Can we get some pics and info on build. I mean i had a 93 Velocity with a 1050 589 Blown was a 100+ mph boat and that wasnt fast enough. So unless this is a 200mph boat im not sure its way to fast.

Well these corvette motors that won't be replaced by the other corvette motors don't need the pro-chargers. there's nothing in the owners manual that says you have to hold the throttles Wide Open for XX?? amount of time. It's always great to have more power than you need and not use it, rather than need more power and not have it. Had it been slow you'd be spending the jack to make it faster now you don't have too. Just go and enjoy it..

Its hard NOT to juice her..... I wish i had this power in a hull like a Donzi.... You can TOTALLY TELL its not safe.... Too lose... The owner of the Formula in my marina asked if I was NUTS running that kind of speed in a 25 ft boat.... Is there a way to stabalize the boat?? She is WAY loose... Would REAL trim tabs make that big a difference??? Otherwise, I'll sell it and get a 30 ft plus offshore... I didn't realize how this power would feel in a 25 ft boat.... VERY unstable
