Thanks, I'm pretty proud of it and all the work I've done on it with the 525, XR/Imco, Zeiger, etc. She runs mid 80s, can even cruise at 80 in right conditions.

Thanks

Best so far is 63mph which is plenty fast for such a small hull. How'd they do on that poker run? Its a fast hull but doesn't like decent size chop at all.

They did alright. Right with the pack. Maybe a little shorter when they got to Portsmouth.

Hi!

Here is my ol Phantom 25 from 1985 fitted with twin Merc 2.5 EFI SS engines. Before that Promax 300 and even a back in the 80-ties a Johnson 3.6 GT V8 300 engine.

Now I am rigging a single Verado 350 sci on it.

Cheeers and thanks for bringing up all the great photos.

Norway! How cool is that! I'll bet the fjords are beautiful. I got to boat on some fjords in Alaska. So what was/will be the fastest of all the power packages?

Hi!

Thanks The V8 GT ran 75 mph. The PM 300 ran 76-77 mph. The twin Merc 2.5 EFI SS ran 87 mph, but accrellated from 47-70 mph in less than 3 seconds. The Verado 350 sci will do 80-82 mph I think. Low fuel and 5 years warranty here in Norway

Cheeers, Toffen
