Default baja 40' outlaw

does anyone know much about the 40 outlaw. looking at one with 2 575sci's with xr drives. looking for a boat that will handle big waves at the lake of the ozarks. are the 575's good motors and are there any good upgrades you can do to them. comparing it to 42 fountain, and 38 formula

A good friend of mine has a 40' Outlaw with 3x500EFI's with ext boxes and stock bravos. It runs a solid 80 in smooth to rough conditions. I have been out in rough water in it but he didnt push it. I think 2 575's would be underpowered. 3 would be nice. Nice boat, need big power. There is another 40 at Texoma with 3 850's that runs 105 ish.

It depends on what you are looking for. I don't think that this boat with twin 575's is underpowered. It isn't going to be a 90 mph boat, but it is not underpowered. It wil handle the LOTO water relatively well, but you will not win many races. It will be slower than a Fountain with the same power.

Default 40 outlaw

just spoke with the baja rep who drove this boat for all the baja functions and poker runs. the boat ran 82.1 in fresh water on lake michican and in texas, he said the whipple cooler and the az speed kit will get another 150hp and would push the boat to 90. he said the stepped hulls are faster but the 40 will outrun them all because you can run 80 through anything and they cant

there is an article in powerboat on this exact boat. its was there brochure boat with poker run cabin and light layup. it ran 80.1 from the factory. they put different props on it and it ran 82 at texoma and lake michigan. the 90 speed came from whipple and arizona speed as an estimate of speed gain
