The return of the "Schiada Sea's"
 
Hello all ! Looking for some input.

I have this old friend. She is a 1990 30' Schiada. Started with SBC and Alpha SS's. Ran as "Schiada Sea's B85 and B35.
With the 357 SBC it had about 1200 hp.at 6500 +-. Best top end was 102 - 104 mph and then I blew a motor.

During her time racing its been 2 front 1 back,3 side by side,and a full F16 canopy boat. I removed the canopy (she felt like a video game) and it is just a clean canvas looking for what next .


She has been in storage since 2001. I think its time for a new start .

Thinking about going to a outboard bracket and maybe 2, 275 Verado's and doing a center console.The hull is about 3000lbs +- and a fast V .

Budget will be $20,000 +- with free labor. Thinking used for motors,new for bracket.Have alot of older stuff to help .

So, what do you think about the idea?

Randy

Man, I remember that one! Loved the staggered small blocks! I get the outboards, but I'd go small blocks bravos.

Here is a blast from the past .

Thanks, Randy

I remember that one too.
No limits cougar, now 32 Speedster

Did you have custom Y pipes on those small blocks, any engine and drive pics when it was together?
Also, did you buy it new from Schiada in 1990?

Crazy enough your boat was one of my favorites, never saw one like it.
Not to many 30 schiadas. Uilt

Sorry , meant not many built

Yep, we did all the exhaust work on our Dyno. Lots of hours in finding the right "Y".

She is # 2 out of the new mold. Mr. Spindlier Sr. got the first one.

Well sorry for all the questions, but that 30 is really interesting to me. I remember the old 30 that was built in the late 70s early 80s....didn't know there was a newer mold. I did see one other newer 30, I think it was white w purple stripes....maybe that was his. Wonder if he still has mold.....probably does but I haven't seen many out there. That's amazing it ran that fast w 600 small blocks and alpha ss

Randy, that is a very nice race boat. I converted my 35' Cigarette into a 28' center console with a single 250 3.0L V-6 EFI Merc outboard. I also added real teak floors. I am land locked so twins just did not seem worth it. There is a older thread about it in the Cigarette forum, "Conversion of a 35' to a 28' CC" or something similar. It has been a fun project despite people's reservations about my sanity. Bob N.
