The 714 motors prob did not have to turn them as hard. I figure the 444 is a slower hull , with more amenities[comfort] than a 388.even looks heavy to me They should of done the 50, Cumberland had one with trips 1000plus hp and did a 125 they said .


JCPERF question for ya . Why don't people build the 632ci like all the drag guys do??I thought that was a good combo.Why?

They work good with pontiac style heads.They dont work good with chevy style heads.Reason being you need a big head with all that piston speed.A 598 is probably the best all around combination.Motors with more bore than stroke make good power and run good.

What about the dart big M's?

So the 632combo must be square?

632s are over square 4.75 stroke,4.6 bore.They make good torque but fall off up top.We tried the 410 big m heads and they are good but not as good as the big chief.The new 18 degree dart chevy heads make about 40hp more than a dart chevy pro 1 heads and the big chief make about 80hp more than the pro 1 heads

Hey Strip--About the Hustler 50 at Cumberland Marine, I'm 99.9% sure that that boat was owned by the original owner of my Slingshot. The 50 had triple 1350 Sterlings with Sixes. It was there on consignment. Don't know if the name was removed,but it was called 'Cosmic Voyager'! I'm looking at the 12/11/02 Cumberland sheet- over a million new, asking $680. His new boat is the 42' Outer Limits with twin 1500hp Sterlings that has 2 hours on it that I was telling you about that I'm parked next to for the winter in heated storage. Lou

Boostbros is right although I thought the Skater was a little longer, but I'm sure he's correct. Mark's a private guy so I've never mentioned his name in the number of times I've referred to him on this site. The 50 was supposedly for his wife. He had a 40 Hustler, bought the Skater. Bought my Slingshot and decided to sell it a month later according to the Team Scream website. By the way, a Hydro-Hoist for a 50 with triples is a sight to see. His new 42 OL is just beautiful. The 50 was rerigged. Not sure they ever got it the way they wanted. Not surprisingly, it didn't have switchable mufflers and Mark had a nasty habit of motoring in in the middle of the night. The folks in the gated community above the Newport Marina wanted to shoot him. Oh well....

was the 444 a BOMB or DA BOMB ?
never really heard anythning on it at all

are you referring to the all white 50 that was around ?
if it is , i was at the factory years ago when they were building it and it was to have turbines in it but there was some "computer issues " and they decided to go with big motors instead - did it become Spiderman ?
can't forget a boat like that with the green accents
