Nice looking project. I'm partial but, that would be a cool boat with some TLC!
what year is it?
is that the one i found for you from Lew? looks good!!!
My Glencoe is a splash of that hull, rides awesome, even in relatively rough water. Rides a little wet though if your looking for speed. I mostly use mine for skiing. Would be interested in how it performs with a berk vs my Jacuzzi wj. So far my top speed is 67 mph with jbp built wj. Diverter helped a lot to "dry it out" a little.
Boating is nothing like cocaine, boating is much more addictive and results in bigger parties!
Love the way these boats handle the chop. We have this extra Olds motor and wouldnt get the $$ we have in it to sell it out right. So we figure buy a Boat cheap put some money into it to make a nice river cruiser/ first timer boat and resell.
1973 Rogers Cyclone- 16' 6"- 350 SBC
1976 Hondo Pantera- 18'- 455 BBO
Yeah, they handle the chop decently. I run a 377 sbc in mine, berk pump with an inducer, ss b imp, stuffer, shoe, ride plate and top loader. I've also done some work to the bottom. I've gps'd mine 75. Few upgrades going on right now should be looking at 80 this summer.

Maybe, if your max rpm is 5500 tops and it only makes 350, you'd need like a C/D imp to get to max power. But then your cruise rpm might not be what you want to see. Rpm=ruins peoples motors.
