Default 24' CC I/O almost completed

Here are a few pictures of the 24' CC I/O. It's gooing to be powered by a 3.0 litre 135HP Mercruiser. Coens expecting a 45mph top speed. This isn't being built for speed, more in line with fishing and family fun.
We just have to mock up an engine cover, which will have a leaning post incorporated into it.

I seriously doubt your going to see 45mph, more like 35 maybe...

Is this boat sold?
I like it, but I think it sould have a 260HP or 300HP small block V8.
No way a 24' boat is going to go 45mph with a 135HP I/O.

I like it too. Outboard on a bracket would be nice.
As far as why build a boat like this?
To each there own.
Keep the pictures coming.

Yeah Pat, it's sold. If you want one with a smallblock we could do that also.

What size engine could you fit under the console and run a jackshaft? would this poorly effect the COG?
It'd be nice to open up the cockpit.

I'm surprised there's interest in a cc fishing boat with an I/O configuration in the stern vs under the console running with a jackshaft or better yet, an outboard.

Love the port side pic... Superboat lines are classic!
