Have they done any with 1075's & 6's, or bigger? Whatever the biggest is that someone posts, how did it run?
I think I saw Merc 850s in one, ran over 90 iirc...

Bill you do realize it probably has 200K in McCleod interior in it right?


Boat is easily the ugliest BT ever built. The boat is a turd and IF National can find a buyer who likes it, then he won't be able to find another buyer to sell it to years later.......

The bow rail, the swept back windshield......it is all bad then the 496's are the final blow into letting you know this isn't the boat to own!

Twin or trip Yanmar 480s and Arneson #8s would have been the best powertrain imo.

The fastest would have to be SAXMAN and his Dad's 43 Flat deck.
There was a turbine 43 Sport cruiser back in the mid 90's that I sold. That had to be the most power ever.
I think somebody is building one now with some big power.

And Jason, that 71 had be down stream on the Mississippi right?

Why the engine swap?
