It has 127 gal gas and 12 gal fresh water. compare the weight to similar hulls and horsepower and you see it is right in there where it should. there is also other oso members that I boat with that will back me up with the speed I get. there are too many people with alot more knowledge than I will ever dream to have about boating on this site why would I try to B.S. about speed. Can do that at the local bar but not here on oso
Scottys red IMP is HEAVY, They very well may have cut a 1000lbs or so over the years. He even has a radar arch that I can hang from (and I'm 6'3 230lbs)!!

I never thought you were B.S. ing' I figured the older models were much heavier than the newer ones, I never really seen what year he was asking for I was just poeting the numbers on the older ones seeing thats all I have info on.

Its all good..

I know someone who had a 32 with 454/330's. Good lake boat, not very good on the ocean.

It's a decent entry level boat. My Scarab Panther ran better in rough water.
