Matt,
My wife just told me she wants to move to Florida.
After reading that and collaborating with you on Desert Storm last year, I think I want to talk her into California !

You have it made !

Now about that SPECTRE with ILMOR power ?
Sounds like a WINNING combination all the way around !!!

Default 32 Cat

I had a chance to see that 32 Spectre at Oregon Custom Marine and she is one fine looking boat. I think 144mph was the best top speed so far, so Tim & crew must have really dialed this rocket ship in perfectly. Matt, these are the type of reviews & articles we want in PB. Great job!

32'/$300k boat with two normally-aspirated engines = 146 mph
31'/$600k boat with two engines that cost more than a house (each) = 176(?)

I don't mean to offend anyone, but the 31' package doesn't really seem all that impressive from the standpoint of either top speed or value. On the other hand, if it is set up primarily for acceleration (as Matt suggests), it's probably a MAJOR kick in the butt.
