Default Powerquest info needed.

I picked up a 99 Powerquest 270 Laser a few months ago. So far it's been a great boat. Anyone else have one or have any experience / knowledge about these boats.(specs,factory info,etx.) Thanks in advance!

Nice looking boat.

I had a 98 270 for two years. PQ makes a nice boat. It had a tendency to porpoise in rougher conditions. Needed to keep the drives tucked in and use some tabs to keep a flat profile. Mine had a 454 mag, 385 hp. I never tested with a GPS. The speedo showed low 60s but I think it was more like 57-59, but that is just a guess from running with others.

Keep wax on the gel, the graphic colors will fade if they get too much extended sun exposure.

Mentalpause,
Thanks! Your right I've noticed it runs better with the drive down and some tap in the rough. It does 60mph on gps. My Speedo also runs higher, reads 65mph. It has a four plade on it now and I have the factory 3 blade. Not sure which is better? Do you still have the factory brochure. It would be awesome if some one could scan e-mail it to me.

Have a 280 Silencer which I really like. PQ boats have a ton of room, good reliable speeds and some good lines.

Your 270 looks sharp

I left everything with the boat when I sold it, so don't have any manuals.

I have the 280 Silencer which replaced the 270 with a stepped hull. Wish I had the 500 . Mine has the 502EFI and goes about 63-65 with entire family and gear. It's a 1999, bought it new and thinking about getting something a little different.

HP500 - what are you looking at to replace the Silencer?

I somehow missed you saying you had a 280 Silencer. I looked at a couple of 280's before I bought my 270. Unfortunatly I didn't find one in the condition I wanted. They both were 1999's and pretty trashed.
