Bad to the bone A fun poker run boat right there, and a nice "sleeper" too

What is the x-dim on that kind of setup? Just curious.

Wink Whose counting anyway?

I hope the new owner has his own personal gasoline company, even with the great Ilmor set up its gotta be going thru fuel at speed like a fiend with that beam and weight. Guess if you can afford the boat, the fuel cost is a non-issue, that's no cheap package! Hope they don't have to bottom paint that nice trick bottom!

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar

I'm just getting used to the concept of a pair of Hering prop cases sitting on the teak floor next to the full-size fridge and wineglass rack. The interior is full of carbon fiber and blue LED's.

The dang boat has EVERYTHING in it!! I was on the boat today for the initial water test. Props are being made as we speak. Im not posting any results as I feel like either Formula or the owner should release that info. It went well though.
PS- The Formula guys are great

I did a couple of 500 EFI Whipple motors for a 400 SS about 4 years ago. It ran Bravos and he ran the snot out of it. Never did break anything. That boat does not like smooth water. We saw days it would hardly break 70 to other days it would run well up in the 70's. Never saw even close to 80 though. I'm guessing in the ocean it would have run a lot faster. He sure surprised a lot of people with it! Unfortunately he passed away last fall. Eventually that boat will be up for sale if they ever get his estate settled.

was that the boat that stayed on B dock at emerald point up until about 4 years ago? If so, i was on that boat and it ran a solid 71 in snotty water. South Austin Marine had it for sale for a while.
