    Richard, I think the last time I saw you I told you I was going to buy an Allison. I'm pretty sure you said to be careful they can turn around and bite you. Well some of my friends will second that, but I must say I truely enjoyed those boats and spent a lot of hours driving them.

    Default Have I seen the light?

    After not being able to bore out a truck engine anymore in order to uneconomically push water through a jet while making a high horsepower motor look like a dog, I have now found myself in the OB Church! I bought this boat about a week and a half ago and had it out to Lake Silverwood (socal) one time for a test run. It was all gummed up, had been sitting over a year. Even though this float got cut short, my Daytona's in the shop getting everything cleaned up and ready for the summer! Looking forward to maybe meeting some more of the outboard church down here in the south west! Here are some pics of my Daytona, the old jet appropriately named "One More Year" and my father in laws 351 trike just becuae it is too frickin cool for words! Not this weekend coming up but next, I hope to have a good report to send back to the OB Church! See you all on the water!!

    Default You have seen the light...

    You have tried "the other way" and figured if you want to rip for more than a quarter mile, an outboard is really the way to go...

    The Church loves to boat...We do not attend Park ' n' Blab's" ...... (Large group of individuals that enjoy beer breath to boating. ) DLB is exempt...they have a good blab, but they are out boating rather than sitting on a sandbar...

    Actually, I like the blabs...I know where they are, and they're not the water.

    We take our boating seriously....is there ANY other way??!

    Welcome to the Church, Brian. Post up where you are boating.

    Brian we welcome you to the church you won't regret the move. I am out on the river from Bullhead to Parker dam or at lake Powell all the time. I live quite close to Lake Silverwood. PM Me and let's talk a bit about your conversion to the church.

    The Allison's ride very high and dry up on the pad plus most of them are setup with 14" of setback. When you chop the throttle the balance point moves forward and the lip on the end of the pad will lift the back of the boat almost out of the water. If you dump the throttle all that setback works like a cheater bar on a wrench and can turn the boat around. So you want to ease out of the throttle. In my opinion if your going to run that much hp you need to take the lip down from 90 thousands (which was standard on boats after 1995) to around 50 thousands and this will allow you to bring the motor closer to the transom. The last two I setup I ran the motor at 5" off the transom. I would never just dump the throttle at over 100 but I can get out of it quite fast with my boat without any ill effects. The sticker on the drivers side reads maximum hp is 150. The lip works great unless you really overpower them and if you do I think that the standard lip can be evil. Again just my opinion and most allison guy's run with a lot of setback and the standard lip. You just can't dump the throttle at speed.

    Any of you guys coming out this weekend for Desert Storm? If so, look up the Tuna Hunter. Follow the smoke trail to the noisy 2-stroke V8's screamin' away on the transom of my Scarab.

    The only blab's I will even be a part of is just when it is me they are talking about. Aaaah yes I can see a few good looking shiny tall deck motors on the beach, with barely enough fuel to get back to the launch saying, "Holy crap how fast you think that Daytona was going man? That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Does Powell or Mead allow 2 strokes? I heard they didn't? Thanks for the info!

    I have been on Mead one time and it was in a 28' Donzi with twin screws on it (hardly felt a bump in the ocean cruiser). This had to be about 8 years ago. I remember big rollers and enough chop to sink a 21 foot boat or at least really beat your kidneys into the stringers.
    What's your experience in Mead, and especially Powell where I would really like to go this year, in a 21 foot tunnel?
    I am just thinking back to the days of the jet (and here again another reason for the conversion to the church) when you could end up in some rough seas and wonder if your bilge was gonna keep up or if the boat was gonna snap in half trying to stay on top of it! Any first hand advice/experience from either of the two great lakes down here would help! Thanks!
