Yup......82 in salt water

Waterheater should run 74-75 easily in salt water.....are you giving him lessons still

Aside from the raw HP consider the torque gain as well

I do not believe that 50hp is good for 10 mph in any boat either. I will believe it when I see it when I see it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe LIOPA will have it sold by the MILK RUN and we will all see....

I will be waiting to see that considering you have said that in the past. And I know what your face looks like when the Progression goes by you in the FRONT SEAT OPTION!!!

BY the way. You will have a different view of my transom this time. I opted for the swim platform to muffle some sound in the five zones. Maybe they will like me this year in Stamford.

I do remember a 525 motor swap in one of those boats that could not beat a stock 500hp carb. I thought I read somewhere that the 525 was a few MPH faster than the 500 carb. Guess not!!!!!!!!!!!

Where is Cheetah when we need him???????

PAging Cheetah, Paging Cheetah are you out there??????????

Trust me I can not wait to this summer. By the way this board is going by April 15 LIOPA, Cheetah, will have too many races set up than weekends in the year!!!!!!

Who isthe lucky candidate for the front seat option if Sick has a boat full of OSO BABES. I heard a rumor that Wasabe likes maroon west coast boats. She might be better to look at when Sick passes me. In fact I will let him pass me just so I can stare at Wasabe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
