Default New Race Boat

Heard that a new race boat (47 foot Cat) designed and built by Mike Peters will be racing next year. It's called a Dolphin. Anyone heard or seen one yet???? Otto

Hey Otto, did you ever get to try your boat with those monster motors? How was it? I've never seen motors that tall before. Kurt really does impressive work.

Hi Ron . Tried the boat in late September . Only one test run told us that the old set up with the 1000 HP motors wont work with the new power. The boat was undriveable with that set up. 1500 hp 1:35 gears ,17 1/2 35 5 blade props and it just ran out of prop. The stern lift was soooo bad that when you punched the throttles the ass end would just leap 4 to 6 feet out of the water. Very scarry. Drives went the Craig to put in 1:24 gears and 1 inch spacers,props to Dennis to be cut to 16 inch and Jack is installing a balst tank. Kurt is working on the CG. All should be ready for Skaterfest. I never thought that this would be a 2 year project. Otto

Ron, the motors were so tall I had to raise the hatches over 8 inches.

Kurt told me that this would be a major project. You're entering a realm that hasn't been ventured into before.

What did they dyno at?? Like 1500HP or something???

Spectre36,

Any more info on the new Peter's cat? Where will it be racing SBI and PX? At 47' it can't race in UIM C1. I had heard (from Mike himself) that he was doing design work on cats exclusively for the Victory guys in Dubai who are now building hulls and rigging for other teams.

Who is laminating the hull?

Who built the 1500hp engines? Bacardi's new Sterlings are also making that hp.

I think that Skaterfest was waiting to have big Doug Lewis back at 100 percent before picking a date. Ron the new power dynoed at 1350 hp at 10 pounds of boost with 100 octane and about 6200 RPMs. Stand to reason the at 15 to 18 pounds of boost it should be over 1500 HP but we had no desire or need to try it on the dyno cause the boat would already be faster then I would ever drive it. I'm not sure that the buolder of the new Peters cat wants to have that info realesed yet. The first boat for next years race season was purchased today. The team is from........... I can't tell you that either at least not yey. Otto P.S Happy Birthday Uncle Toys.
