I know Kenny Boyce's old Tiger ran just at 100mph with worked 900's.

The "Mind if I Smoke" Tiger was right up there too with 1000 Zul's.

Which Tiger do you have?

Voodoo you'll need serious HP to get to 110mph...

I ran Zull 653 ci just like the Kenny's flag graphic boat above that were around 1000HP and the most I have seen is 100 mph.

Great boat here are some Video's and pictures if you care;

Oddly enough both boats were sold to persons in Japan and shipped there.

GLH,

Are you aware if stepped bottom Tigers have handling issues if they have staggered motors?

I have not heard of any staggered Tigers to tell you the truth, but I am not that aware of Cig models in the last few years.

I did hear some stuff on the early twin step Tigers but I don't know of any with staggered setup.

The issue I heard essentially in the Twin Steps Tigers in the few years after they started making them was that the steps were so big that the boats tended to lean left or right when running and flip flop from one side to the other. Also backing up was very unpredictable due to the big steps.

What I recall writing this is that they reworked the steps with the 42x that also had a third smaller step in the back and it resolved the problems.

Mind you this is all hearsay I have never ridden in any of those, this is from talking to guys that owned them at Poker Runs and seeing a couple run. Riding in any boat you would be interested in would provide a lot more information than what I have heard.

Hope this helps,

Go Ford!

G.L.
