Let's put 3 1000's in a 47 OL 125-130mph. Then the same motor's in a 47 Apache 100-110.
I like the Apache as much as the next guy but there old school. It's like have a cool classic car.
As far as a Cat go's they are fast but most have no cabin to speak of and are hard on drive's. I don't think it's a good idea to go from a cruiser to a 100mph V hull much less a cat.

I'VE BEEN ON SOME OF THOSE OTHER BOATS
THEY WOULD SELF DESTRUCT AT THOSE SPEEDS.

P.S. OWNERS PICK THE ENGINE PACKAGE, SO WHY DOESN'T ANY ONE EVER PUT BIG POWER IN OTHER BOATS, OR DO THEY BUT THERE JUST NOT FAST.

I'M SICK OF HEARING ABOUT HOW OUTERLIMITS PUTS BIG POWER IN ALL OF THERE BOATS. THEY DON'T THE OWNERS DO.THERE MUST BE A GOOD REASON THAT THEY DO THIS. PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALL HAD OTHER BOATS AND KNOW OF WHAT THEY ARE CAPABLE OF. SO GIVE IT UP. AND DON'T KNOCK THEM TILL YOU HAVE RIDDEN IN ONE.

I'M SURE THAT THERE IS NOT ONE PERSON OUT THERE THAT HAS EVER RIDDEN IN ONE AND WAS NOT SURPRISED AT HOW WELL THEY TAKE THE ROUGH WATER.

YOU USUALLY HAVE TO PAY MORE TO BE THE FASTEST OR THE BEST.

AND LAPSE OF REASON IF YOUR NOT BEING SARCASTIC E-MAIL ME

I don't own an OL yet, but I am shoping and do want one that is 95 mph+. I do think my 42 Sonic is the perfect boat for this guy to move into or one in the same class. I will have mine soon so you can bust my ball's all you want when I post my new boat. A 130 mph first performance boat is not a good idea I don't think. So I hope yall don't think that is what I want.

I road on the very first 37' Stiletto, 900 MRD's and #6's on boxes...does that count?
I don't think they had the setup dialed in back then.
It ran a 100mph on flat water, but was a bit scary in 4-6 footers.

No the next boat will be boat # 8 and had a few in the mid 80's. I also have been racing stuff for 25 years so I know what it feels like to f up and fall down thats why I say work your way up.
