Default victory

Was actually stored at Victory ...
\engines completed

Boat is still parked there.

14' wide .... requires permits to tow.

Will have the ad with details on the AllisonMarine.us web site and in classifieds today.

The engines came out impressive.

Default Speed

prior to engine replacement was 85-sometimes bumping 90.
Target was 100 although in reality with mild boost & pump gas mid 90's.
