Go with the white! Vinyl can be added any time. If you have painted grafix its forever.... almost...... I painted over my outdated Miami Vice colors.

big blocks 454's...running about 550 hp each, bw trans, trs drives...rectangle port heads, crane solid roller cams, 615 lift 298 dur. strip dom intakes(not good), glenwood 5" , 25 pitch prop's runs .. 5500rpms. larg k-planes, msp ignition. no real major problems, motors were build by simonek, (pre typhoon merger) . only stupid stuff, the ignition was a prob, wouldn't run well w/ stock ign, had to go w/ msd, solved many problems...heavy boat, lots of fun in the ocean w/ a little wind!.. I think that just about covers it!

BarCostal -- Any gps speeds? I'd bet 85, maybe a little more.

PICS! PICS! PICS!

Cashbrain -- Why would I need RYAN to reproduce them?

All white looks Classic. Go white

I have pretty close to the same setup as above. 86 Scarab Panther 5400RPM's 25p quicksilver props @ 82mph.

Might try a mirage later

I think all white boats look fantastic, maybe with an American flag on the bow.
