I remember when they brought that boat to the Smoke on the Water Poker Run back when Ohio Steel was the fastest production deep V at something like 113 mph. As I recall those two went at it and Ohio Steel simply walk him without trouble. But I will say one beautiful boat. I have some old pictures I took when he was here. I want to say it must have been about 1990.

When Joe had the boat it ran 105-106. It was not a race layup. He did take very good care of the boat, always covered, waxed etc. He really didn't spar any expense.

TRS drives and cheap is an oxymoron. The parts are becoming increasingly scarce and the prices on rebuilt units are not coming down either. When you inquired about our 39' Stinger project for sale, I told you all about the TRS drives. Given the horsepower and torque of the stock 454/400 Cyclones, the TRS drives should be bulletproof. There is no sense in replacing them with Bravos at this stage of the game, because there are other variables, i.e. engine placement, etc., and especially Bravo III's as you mentioned, which are not appropriate for this type of boat. The only logical replacement drive for the TRS is a Konrad, and they will run almost $20k for the pair last time I checked. With that in mind, I don't think they are in your price range considering you were supposedly shuffling money around, sending me a deposit and picking the boat up this past weekend. I spent an awful lot of time discussing this boat with you and for a change I'm just left hanging.
