What are those motors, 415hp if I remember correctly? Surely you can bump that up w/o using blowers?

It's nice to have trips in a boat that big when one goes down. I have personal experience...


LOL......are you talking about a phantom boater? One that talks about boats they had but never really had one?

From what I recall.....yes, the 502MAG is rated at 415HP.....but not sure. Blowers? LOL It's not made for a speed contest! It already uses enough gas! It has a single 390 gallon gas tank.

In these pictures......I was actualy trying to get up on plane with the center motor and the starboard one. The port motor was locked up for some reason. Doesn't matter now.....all three motors are coming out this week (again!!!!!).

The 48' was a 46' with a different deck, and since then the bottom has been highly modified. I think it is only a 44' running surface tho.......

Does anyone know what the biggest engine package Black Thunder has ever put in one of their 46's is?

Have they done any with 1075's & 6's, or bigger? Whatever the biggest is that someone posts, how did it run?
A 460 EC was built with merc 700's and ran 89mph in powerboat. Another 460 EC was built with merc 850's and ran 95mph on the limiters.

There is currently a 460 SC with staggered 1200's being finished up right now.

Nort on the smaller stuff we would helm the boat over back and forth that helped to get up on one motor.
