Just read in the My Way thread per JC in post #63 the motors are 1200's.
Stock 1075 in a sv43 hung out runs around 143.

Know" What hull holds more kilo records than any vee bottom?

I would probably guess Allison or Hydrostream.

"Know" that I am not talking about river rat boats.

You two sound like little *****es, to be honest.

Hell, TRL505 called the other guy a moron after using "their" incorrectly. Irony.

[QUOTE=Twin O/B Sonic;3490497

So yeah, 140 may not be 177 but still bad ass in a large Vee and fastest there. End of story and well done guys! Think I read this was a full interior boat too
CONGRATS![/QUOTE]

The boat has a full five man suede and vinyl interior with stereo and all the options as well as a large plush half cabin.

Great points, plus I couldn't believe how much faster it was than the Skater Vee

OL SV43 was 139/140mph

Skater 399 Vee's best run was 126mph

Huge advantage for the OL, and the Skater looked much smaller on its runs!

That OL SV43 was a much larger boat, and went down that course perfectly. Even Bob Teague commented several times how impressive that run was, for a 43ft boat, and said it was be very hard for any Vee to beat that speed..

U have any pics of the boat OL40SVX?..

I'll post some pics when I get into the office tomorrow. The owner would have upped the number but he unfortunately had to head home to tend to hurricance clean up back on Long Island. The handling of this hull at 120,130,140,150,160,170+ is incredible!
