Yup! There is a guy up here on Lake George that has one. You are really better off with twins though. The third motor doesn't really add much to the boat but a lot of stern weight.

Thanks Shane-
I kind of figured that hydrodynamicaly (sp?) it is an issue of drag vs. power. I thought it would be interesting to see.

i have been told the third motor dosent really do much for top end but gives it crazy acceleration. packinair has researched extensively but we cant seem to find enough room on the back of his 23

Default Yep

A friend of mine is a mechanic who works on one that is on Lake Hopatcong. It is owned by two guys who are like contractors or something and they are apparently new to this kind of boat.

My mechanic friend tells me he has done 140 with it on Lake Hopatcong which I found hard to believe given the size of the lake. The motors are equipped with NOS., and he says the acceleration in just ridiculous. He swears it sees those numbers in that short distance.
