Default Grab the boat..

Have no Idea what your outlaw looks like or what equiptment is has, but that sunsation is one great looking boat,My best friend has one with only 496s naturals and its really a good ride!! about 82mph.
Looks like you better make the deal before the guys in the white coats and butterfly nets find that guy!! A blown 32 for a 24? But then the cash may be the thing that is going to break your balls..

Hey Les, good to see you still on the board. Haven't seen you around for a while.

OG outlaw, that is a way cool boat. Sunsations make a great boat. It doesn't have quite the freeboard of other 30' boats. but, it's usually faster and who needs freboard when you can skimm the topps fo the waves.
I think 50k would be a steal.

OG Outlaw 24, Beautiful boat, Contact OSO member Gary864, That is his old boat and he can fill you in on all the details, I believe that it used to run 100+MPH.

How many hours on the motors? Tyler says 400 - 600 Hours on his setup (thats what he told me 2 years ago) with possibly a blower re-work in between. Are the drives stock bravos? I would nick a few grand each off if they are stock. You will need better drives if so. Tyler usually uses the Max Machine works drives. It does sound like you have a close deal good luck. Why is the seller selling?? These engines can be a little tempremental in the cold weather as they are not EFI. If you have not allready, call Tyler and get all the info on the boat you can. He should be willing to help.

get a copy of the dyno sheets, 700 hp could be at 7000 rpm. 220 hours on motors, do a leak down test. they may have to be refreshed. stock bravos dont like 700 hp for very long, pull the top caps and take a look around.

I'm going to agree with Lee,
95 mph sounds like a very conservative number with 700 hp (that's a first in this business!) 600 hp in these boats should push it into the lower - mid 90's. 700 hp should push it at least to the century mark. I wonder if the current owner has the boost "pulleyed" down to run on cheap gas. Something to ask.
