Default Single Engine Cat Guys?

Just curious, what kind,how big,what power and how fast and how fast are you aiming for?

Mines a Daytona 25, slightly stepped on 500efi with a blackhawk. 91.1 best so far at 5100rpm. Would like to see low teens so cruise would be 80 to 90 range but I think a drive and engine change is in order before that happens.

Do O/B count?
Used to have a 21 Eliminator. Most fun I ever had with a boat. 97mph with 300hp Evenrude, that was fast enough in that little boat.

Gary-I've ridden in that boat with the same combo. This is whole lotta fun. Gotta love the sound of that V-8 too.

26', 580hp, [email protected]=85mph. [email protected]=90mph. [email protected]=87mph. I know this thing will go 100 and I'm gonna get it there.

AP-I really want to get that drive on for this trip. If I can get it on, I'll be able to post some good numbers. I already have 27's and I just picked up some 31's. Naturally I think I need 29's.

I just joined the cat club. My new ride is a 1997 23' WPM Warrior and the motor is a naturally aspirated 598" with CNC heads, solid roller, CMI sweeper headers, and a Nickerson 1500 CFM dominator. HP is unknown and speed is unknown, but the speed will be known soon. It should do 100 plus, but ya never know!!

With those heads, the cam and carb, you have to be at least 800hp. Even without trying to set the boat up, you'll go 100.
