I know that boat personaly, That boat was Eddy T's boat it was called tilt back in the day! The only problem with that boat was it was 5700lbs with no motor's when it left the factory it's just to FAT to FLY it needs to be light to run with those old 2.4's if it had new 300 max's it would make that boat run some decent speed's it probably rides great! either up grade the motor's or strip it and put in a pair of superchared big block's!!

That would be great if you could hook me up with the previous owner I drove the boat right after he got it and i figured it was running right at 80 It seems like it is heavy for an outboard boat

Wow
80 is SLOOOOWWWW! 5700# does sound heavy. Thats about what the triple ob race boats are weighng out at at the end of the races now. The boat probably needs some set up work on it. does it have jackplates, low water pickups , etc. it sure seems like it should do at least 90. One of the best OB set up guys around is John Vanderstel in St Cloud Fl. He worked at Lake X for like 20 years but now has his own shop called Offshore Concepts. If you realley wanna gwt that thing to RUN give him some time to set it up for you.

the boat has stainless marine set backs on it the motors are back over a foot and it looks like they have been moved around the outside motors have low water pickups on the boat the center one doesn't
the props are two left 28 cleaver 3 blades and one right 28 cleaver 4 blade that was until we broke the propshaft and lost the four blade so the testing is on hold right now
the outside motors where spinning 6400 rpm and the center was 6200 rpm

it's my friends boat and he wants me to help him to figure the set up out

IF this boat will run Big John can get it there. He is about 10 miles from lake x and all the props you could ever dream of trying. I am not sure but you choice of rotation doesn't seem right, but I could be wrong. Offshore Concepts number is 407-891-8900 bring the boat to Fla for a vacation and leave with it set up.
