That will be interesting...if its a 29 Warlock SVL that dose 100mph with a 525...that will be impressive...the Extreme's and Phathom's have been doing a lot of testing to get to the low 90's...

Best of luck....and it will be good to see another Manufacture in the SVL running

I like the idea of a LSX SBC Whipple Supercharged motor that makes 1000hp with a Imco SCX drive. that would be a great package, light and stupid fast.

But for the first boat out I think it needs to be a stock package so people have some real numbers for comparison. So I think the 525 XR is a good way to go. Then the buyer can throw a Whipple on the 525 and have a real screamer.


The drawings look sick, Good Job OL!! I cant wait to see it in person.

How about a couple Raylar LSM-550's? NA engines running 89 octane. Nice fast lightweight package with Bravo XR drives. Probably would get great mileage too.

Way not a performance build vs. flat water speed? OL should consider a new small boat with the best balance you can build with warranted HP. Also, is this a true 28' or you counting F/G "tricks" on the transom to get to 28'?

IMO, if the boat will out handle the competition with similar top speed, it will sell if the buyer is educated. The 28' Magnums and Cigarettes with twin SB's were generally the most competitive in APBA in the 80's-90's and generally not because of their flat water speed. They could run hard and flat.

I think the twin 550 HP Raylar SB set-up (or similar) and XR's on a dialed-in OL hull would be in a class by itself. What if it would run 110 MPH? What is the difference between $150k & $175k?...they are both in the range you would expect from OL.

If I was going to buy a OL, it wouldn't buy a single engine boat to save a few $ on initial cost and does gas cost really matter?

Remember the Edsel?...build by asking the customer Me included!

Just ran the numbers. 1100 HP, 275 constant, 6900 lbs = 110 MPH...easy if you hit the weight.

Maybe some KE all alum SB's?

I agree! Dial the CG in with those lightweight small blocks, running hard and flat would be no problem. What a great promotional boat that would be for both OL and Raylar. Just need someone willing to take that first leap of faith $$...

My pig 292 weighs in at 7500 lbs with iron 6.2's. The OL/LSM package would have no problem hitting 6900 lbs.
