I use to have one. 3200 lbs dry is with the small block Alpha package. Probably a couple hundred pounds more with the 7.4 Bravo. My boat ran low to mid 60's gps with the 7.4 although the speedo was reading 70. Changed heads, cam, exhaust, intake, and carb and reached 70 gps. A GM 502/502 reached upper 70's with a 27" Mirage Plus when you could keep the chine walk under control. Boat did not need a 4 blade and the Mirage Plus was the best prop. Build quality was as good as you would expect for a boat with a plywood floor. If you beat it in some heavy seas the boat will flex and stress cracks will appear. It always held together though. Just break out a screw driver after a hard run and tighten all the screws that back out. The graphics do come off with age.

Default scarab 22

I used a 22 Scarab for about a year. It belonged to a friend, and I maintained it. So, i got to use it. Be careful. Scarab released "one offs" the firsts from the mold, which were very prone to stress cracks. At 50 hours we had over 20 cracks in the gel. He drove the 1995 hard. However, my 1990 Condor with 1000 hull hours only had one. We ran the same speeds. I had a real cabin, 24 degree hull and 2 more feet. All for 10,000 less. Granted: His was new and mine was used, but mine was a better fit for 2-3' sloppy chop. Look. There are better values out there. Last point: The Scarab looks really cool. The design looks real beefy and strong, a sweet little muscle boat, and a good entry.

That thread is old.

I almost put bolsters in my 98 22 scarab. There is not enough free board in that boat.
