Default Old Zutphen's

I was surprised to see there was a Sutphen crowd outhere. So I am adding a picture of my '86 Sutphen. It won't win the award as the oldest but it's still clean, runs great and never left me stranded

The 30' Ocean Pacer runs best in a little chop. I had stripped her of all the excess baggage (mother in law, wife, dog, water, gas etc...) and got her to 82mph on the GPS. Golden Racing built her motors and I can only guess that the 454's are putting out 480 HP. Never had her on a dyno. She can be very loud. Only one noise violation but that got thrown out of court when the cop didn't show.

I bought the boat because I used to own a Wellcraft. That mass produced boat had the engine mounts rot out and the replacement is a job nobody should have to do twice. The Sutphen is built like a brick sh**house. I cannot stuff the bow! I think the worst waves she ever saw were when I was up by the Manitou Islands in Lake Michigan. They were about 9' and I couldn't stay on plane.
