Default OK Nauti-Kitty How Fast is it?

Now first I will make my excuse, my center prop was all chewed up which I had told you before even going in the water. Also the props are just wrong, it only turned 5400 RPM, it was a sled all the way to Muskegon and back. But, your boat did look like it was fast, at just about 80 you flew by me. Whats the review? What did you think? My supposed boat educated friends speak very highly of that brand of boat, they say after running it you wont want to sell it. Midnight

This thing runs like a raped ape. 104 with the three of us and half a tank of gas. Accelaration is better than my skater. My new boat will run pretty strong with these motors also so I am still sticking to my plan. I think when someone buys the Sutphen hull and rerigs it with bravo's and 500's it would run over 80. It just seems to be a real fast hull. Anyway your boat looked and sounded great, it was good to be out there. Bring on summer. NK

I recently purchased a 39 Sutphen from Ft Meyers with 950 chiefs and 6's. Maybe you have seen it around? I'm rerigging a 41 Saber to install these drives and motors and then I'm selling the Sutphen less power. NK

Default Parnell Are You Nuts !

The freakin' thing is going 104mph with those "little motors" , wet #6's and let me guess, 4 blades I LOVE my Saber but what the hell are you thinking ! I'm gonna have my hands full if you bring that thing to Smoke ( hope it's choppy he, he , he), are ya ? If you don't I might have a spot for ya but you gotta promise to duck down, if you stand straight your big tall ass will cost me 2 or 3 mph

New staggered 622CID Chiefs, new dry sump #6's, rigged at TNT, all installed in a Sutphen, a hull well-known for eatin' rough water for lunch.
I haven't quite figured out how to bend my knee backwards so I can kick my own ass for not buying that boat when I had the chance.....
I agree with Don- it would be a shame to part that boat out. What exactly does the Saber have that the Sutphen doesn't?
