    In all fairness I didn't see where they said that you could pull 5 skiers at 100 mph.

    I read it as

    Pull 5 skiers.

    Go 100 mph.

    Max there's something wrong with your free gas and naked boobie shots link. I didn't get any free gas or see any boobies.

    If you follow that link and then click where it says "click here to give" (it's free), a beautiful naked woman will show up at your house with some gasoline...sometimes it takes several clicks though.

    I hate to knock the guy's boat. It looks like a nice enough boat...seller just might be a little over enthusiastic about the speed and rareness of the Chevy...er..uh rare Mecury straight...er..uh V-8. All of which I think might be affecting the somewhat triple-ish BIN price.

    Okie dokie..........I'll try it again. Hopefully the free gas will soften the blow some when a naked chick rings the bell and my girlfriend answers the door.

    More like 2 naive people on ebay since it appears they're selling it for someone else.

    That's one of the funniest damn things I have read.

    IF 400 hp = 100 mph in that Advantage then 935 HP = ? in a Cal. Performance ?

    100 mph behind a 500 hp duelie

    First off, you guys got the speed wrong. Seller claims it was "radared at 110" before being told by the water patrol to "get it off the lake and don't come back".

    Considering it was done with a single carb, 400 hp 454 and JE pump, I feel real bad for guys like RCB19 and Fuelinmyveins. After all, this looks like the Rogers hull that Advantage had and both those guys needed considerably more motor and pump to achieve the same 100-110mph in their Rogers. Man, if only they had known it could have been done so much easier and and so much more inexpensively.

    That's really unfortunate. Some poor sucker is going to buy a nice enough looking boat just to find out that it is way slower than he was told.

    It's a really decent 60 mph boat. Nothing to be disappointed with.

    Five skiers off of that little hook. I'm pretty sure that my 12JE engine mounts would leave the boat, if the little hook could even hold on with that much weight.

    oh well. Ebay.

    ''
    The boat owner explained that the rooster tail from this boat at top speed shot out far and high (a rooster tail is a wall of water -- on this boat it is as high as 80 feet up). He related one instance where the spray was photographed by marine patrol officer, and clocked at over 110 miles per hours. His father was told at that time to remove the boat from the lake and not to return.
    It is easy to get carried away with the power and smooth ride this high speed boat delivers. It has twin tanks -- each tank holds 25 gallons of gas. You can use any grade gas. If you are just going along at a lower cruising speed, the owner says one tank of gas will last you all day.''


    man, 110mph and any grade of gas? must be nice!
