Default Taylor Powerboats

What do you think about Taylor Powerboats?? I am interested in one, 21 foot with a 454 in it with a merc outdrive, so it is not a jet boat. Just want some input on what people think about Taylors, since many people don't even know what they are!

Just buy a top gun so you can come out and play in the sloppy stuff

Martin, you know I am a bay runner. That boat will hit close to 75, maybe faster with a Gary Box big block pushin it...noone will be able to touch me except for those damn lil' skaters.

Gary Box

Wow that's name from the past please give me some more details on what he is up to.
I grew up in North Olmsted he lived in Westlake we got into a lot of funny and fun stuff back then. Does he know how to build HP for boats or is he still into cars.

Gary currently owns a 67 Corvette that is the most beautiful car I have ever seen. It is 100% street legal and currently holds the fasted street outlaw record for a time or 8.08 at Norwalk. He is a buddy of my dad's and if I do get this Taylor we are thinking about having Gary build a motor for it. There are two websites that you should check out...www.boxperformance.com which is his website and www.fultonspointfilm.com which is a movie that was shot downtown and should be out soon, but nothing like big screen or anything. His car and a old Camaro were featured in it. Respond when you get a chance..
