I have a question, is there any poker runners running outboard power?
If not why???
I believe a 36' w/ triple mercs 300 XS would be a great fast and maintenance free boat.
Even a 41' w/ that power should run very well.
Just an idea.........
pp.
PS, Steve as you seen, I am not the only one w/ the idea of you offering some type of course on boat building. LOL

Sir thank you for the kind comments, That is a real good Idea for your 36, I was watching some nice video of it last night, also the 41 with the right bracket would fly ,the outboards have a lot to offer.

Sir the Kuwaitis came over and made an offer, they wanted me to work with them building a large boat company there in Kuwait with my Cats as the center piece at first I turned them down with the war just over and the place all shot up .

They bought one of my 36' Cheetahcats and left a one way ticket on my desk. Anyway I wound up using the ticket,The Kuwaiti's treated me very good and like adopted Ole Steve ,we were also Military Contractors there suppling the Coastguard with Boats and I was encouraged to bring my ideas to reality.

I agree, a trip 300xs 36 should run close to 90MPH!!!. twin 525's run 93+MPH.

Alec I have a 33 foot open CheetahCat ,road Legal designed as a single diesel IO and outboard single or twin, I built a test plug while overseas ,the Kuwaiti's loved the thing called it the flying carpet anyway it is a fuel miser and the numbers then showed @7 miles per gallon single diesel Then and I had two 50 gallon round fuel tanks planned in the sponsons like my other cats.

Hey pal, tell us about this idea.

I didnt think Cats would work with a diesel.
