Default 40 Baja w/trip 500EFI

This was parked in front of my house the other day. New owner wants it to go 100MPH.
Any history on this boat? What would it take to get it to 100MPH?

They run about 84 with stock triple 525's I think.

They made a poker run version too. There was one on Lanier that had the stripped cabin with cargo nets. Cant remember the power but it was a nice boat. I would imagine 100 would be off the scales on $$$ considering you have to modify 3 engines.

Do like kid turbo with the diesel route. That will be a cool boat.

years ago someone wrote to hot rod magazine wanting to know what they needed to do to get their '67 Impala to run 200 mph but they did not want to make any body mods.
their answer was "it will be very hard to not modify the body when it hits the bottom of the very high cliff you will have to push it off to attain those kinds of speeds".

My guess is it would need at least trip 800hps.

From the looks of the Port rear corner I'd invest in some docking lessons first.
