john built 1 y2k 30 w/outboards it was rigged it with a pair of 300 merc's
i think it even may be a light weight hull
i know there was a balace tank
i herd it was real fast havent seen it since it left the factory the guy who bought it rigged it himself
his first name was allen he worked for sport boats sales
which is out of business
ss390 they are still building the plug for the 34c/c
i think it will be ready late'04 or early '05

Length limit for SOB's is 24'. I do know that John C. had thought of building a light weight 30' with a single 300x on it. He had mentioned this at the first meeting we had in Long Island for the SOB race class.

I'd also love to see a 30' Y2K with twin 300x's on it. I'd guess mid 90's. The problem with that boat w/OB's is the price and resale value. Two 300x's cost almost $40K. They don't last very long (100 hrs?) and OB vee hulls seem to have poor resale value. Remember OB's as a general rule are dated after a few years... the BBC has been around basically unchanged since the 60's.

I want a new boat ..but am tired of IB's. Too much hassle climbing in & out of engine compartments. I really want a cat, but with no cabin for Momma? The 300's seem to be holding up real good, OB's seem to be pretty reliable & you don't have climb into compartment.
I am surprised you don't see more of these boats.

The problem I see is the fact that the door is hinged on the top and has to swing all the way up to gain access(correct me if I'm wrong). This means that you can't access the cabin or leave the door open while under way. Plus it looks like it would limit the seat width and placement. There will alway have to be room between the seats for the door to swing up. Beyond that, I absolutely love it.

I asked the same question, John said he can put pull pins at the hinges so you can just remove the door, leave it on the deck or put it in the cabin
