140? do you know how fast that is! no way would you hit 140. 120ish MAX. NOT 140.

Good luck Timucin, hope your project works great for you, I have rode and driven a 28 eliminator with twin 496 engines it was one of the best cats I have rode in period, I have been in a 30 spectre with twim 300 it was a bouncing machine, set up is everything, with the mods you have done, it should run pretty good there, keep us posted

Best of luck, looks like you have had a great time and lots of fun. I think you need to be careful that is lots of weight in the back. You probally should balance the front with something. Call Scott and see what he thinks. There is a reason you dont see 28 Skaters' with twin big blocks. Those motors look awesome, maybe try putting them in a 32 or 36. A return to the dock at any speed will be welcomed. Please be careful, would love to see finished product. Craig

Mr Steve thnx;
what do you think about the last event?!?remember I was talking about 'I did everything at least twice''.those throttles were the only thing that I didnt loose...isnt it funny?!?. I am living a deep paranoia for the moment..like somebody is reading all my posts and doing all everything to delay this boats run..

I am reaily tired and confused...but on the other side things could be worse...I have a full finished boat at least.will order new throttles tommorrow..

need some idea : I am planning to install a roll bar in the cockpit.to give more strength .a steel bar.what do you think?
let me try to draw what I mean:
