Ive been hanging out here for a while checking out all the cool rides and am now looking to buy a cat. I picked up a 08 Trick 21 with a 300XS ( spent most of my forum time on S&F last summer ) on it last year and sold it so im in the market for another boat.
I have been looking for something around a 22' maybe a 24' with either a single or twin outboards, but have not come across anything that has jumped out at me. I am a fan of HP so a cammed up big block always catched my attention as well, just have never had one in a boat.
I found a 1998 Carrera 257 effects X 25 with a supercharged 540 pushing 1150 HP, this sounds like some good fun but I cant find much info on any forums re these boats. Does anyone have any links to pics and info on these?
Im concerned it may be too big ..... my 21' Trick was a good size, we have no chop in our lake at all, it is always calm. I assume a 25' boat would feel and drive much larger than the 21, any thoughts on this size of boat in smooth water? is it a waste?
Re the motor ..... it has 65 hours run time, how many hours does a motor like this get before some freshining up is needed?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
