Not necessarily, you can't give those things away. To do a decent repower you are looking at way more than the boat is ever gonna be worth.

Does anyone have more pics besides what I can find on yachtworld of these beauties? More links to specs or ads would be cool.
I picked up season one of Miami Vice, and one of the episodes features a boat race between a 50 Cary and Crockets CC Stinger(yes, he has a Chris Craft in the early years, and I loved the paint setup on it).

Diesels are the only way to go on a 50' Cary. Too much weight and beam for gas motors.

He HAD a stinger untill they refered to it as a ''Cigarette boat'' in one of the early episodes.

You're most likely 100% correct, but Go Fast Be Louds are a new breed to me. I grew up on Sportfishermen/Convertibles in the mid 30' range. Good family times. But I'm starting to get into the performance scene of things.

And I've got to admit, there is something seductive about the thought of being aboard one of these and cracking open 4 modded big block mills at once. Anyone have any experience???

Going back to the Miami Vice episode with the boat race, in the accountants office are large matted/framed photos of Offshore Powerboats. But very large, amazing quality work. Where can stuff like that be found?

I,ve seen this boat,it's in good shape.If I remember correctly it's been completely awlgripped.Don't know about the cabin but the engine compartment was either gelcoated or awlgripped also.the owner also has some Sea Tech deisels with some seriuos HP he may want to get rid of too.I think there in the 1000 to 1200 HP range.Acouple of those should push it along pretty good.Anyone seriously interested let me know,Magnum...
