Default Getting my Heat back

Strange how things work out in life. I've just completed a deal to buy my 2004 Heat back. I regretted selling it from the first day. Not very often you get to go back and undo a mistake! Anyway, I just listed my Rage for sale in the classifieds. I need to sell it to complete the deal.

I don't think your rage will last long at the price you are asking with the power upgrades. Was your Heat an open or closed bow?

My Heat was an ongoing project that I finally finished. It's an open bow, ITS/XR drive and a 900+HP EFI Whipple supercharged engine. Once finished I decided to sell it and get a 35, then hard economic times forced the sale of the 35. So, round and round we go.

Welcome back to the perfect all around boat size.

If I remember correctly... your Heat is pretty darn fast!

She runs pretty good. Mid 90's with 6 psi boost in the summer heat. The engine has low compression so I could raise the boost a couple more pounds but it would just be harder on parts. It's been very dependable like it is.

Hi Bob,
Funny how things work out sometimes. I hope you get your Heat back. I know you spent a lot of time and $$ on her.
Best Regards,
Steve
