That was then, this is now:


I know what you are thinking, "What does this have in common with the Outerlimits?"

How about the paint job?

And the art of design to try something different and push the limits of the boats today.....

Thumbs up Re: Outerlimits Working Hard On New Spped Record The Facts

Just take close look at what went into this front of this intake:


Also if you noticed, the outboards are in a "fixed position" and the boat is steered with a cable steering rudder on the starboard side.

so when you detune them to 5000HP they would be good for like 10 seconds instead of 4?

and ,, do you think that Mike or Reggie could run 20 miles up the Bay to get a cold one ,,, after the Two way Kilo pass????

These guys need to get real ,, if they are selling factory boats ,,, build it with the sink and head then put the same type Merc engines ( 1075s ) and make there statement !!

Other wise it means nothing to the average buyer!

Its the real world that we boat in ,,, the speeds they report are always wrong in the real world!!

C'mon Rog ... You know reality and facts have absolutely nothing to do with this topic .... this entire sport for the most part .... so just lean back with your Metamucil and melba toast and everything will be just fine .

At those speeds in stepped V hulls, unfortunately I think they'll have a funeral before they have a beer.

Speed on the water in those kinds of ways has a bad track record.
