Oh they're back, just on center consoles. They were never on "fast" offshore boats. They were on comfortable offshore boats. Scarabs, Sonics, Excalibur, 47 Fountain etc. All replaced in today's...

That boat was delivered new to Lake Texoma with 1000 SC's. I believe it ran right around 100 back in the day. It has always been one of my favorites. It was a serious machine back then and now.

I think the hatch is key. Creating vacuum. I know of a very fast skater back in the day that picked up 25MPH in the shootout just by putting the engine hatches back on. Still shots show the vacuum...

Fountain is back. They are on the front of every boat related discussion board I visit. Whether they do or don't break the record, does anyone not know that Fountain is back?

I only have about 10 hrs on mine. I added a 1/2" pickup in the tank and running -8 fuel line. No problems keeping up with a dominator and 650HP.

At $25k, it may be a good deal on the 1000HP engines it took to run 97mph.

If it were me and you have the time and ability, buy it, get the engines and tabs out of it. The engines look like they may be diesels and I would guess TRS drives? After you do that much, decide it...

3-4 inches will probably give you the best planning and cruising results. Good luck and be sure to take as many measurements as you can to square everything up!

If you want to run a bravo 4 blade, you are going to want the 1.5:1 gear. I don't think you'll find a small enough prop with 1.36:1 gear. You'll need a $400 used prop and a $100 hub assembly too.
