i needed something that i could afford. or trade for... i have for trade a $20,000 355 small block race motor was at 800hp on dyno. i was told by the old owner.. i showed it once and the guy did not dispute the claim of hp., when i said the heads, and cnc porting from a guy in florda, for $10,00 he said the guy i got it from could have spent more... and knew who ported it..


anyways i bought a daytona eliminator project. it is a 24 foot, well 23' 8 inches needs floor, interior, motor it was a twin outboard but i am thinking about a inboard outdrive...

i didnt get any e mails of any reply's to the post or i would have replied sooner jason

Micheal Thomas, are you still looking for a boat? I've got a 1992 Stealth tunnel hull, 468 big block, turnkey that I'm interested in selling or trading for a 1955 Chevy. You can see a picture of it at the beginning of this message. I can send more pictures if your interested. "E" mail me at [email protected]. Chet Doak

I am not looking for a jet..props are where it is for me.
I might be interested in selling my boat. My business has been so busy that I've only had a chance to put it in the water once this year.

Pump gas, turn-key 21’ Cougar V-drive tunnel with a blown 502 Chevy engine. Seats four. Super reliable. It’s been a regular at meets, so you can ask anyone in the club about it. I routinely take people for rides around 115 mph.

Not cheap. :D

Like 25K. Might consider some custom car or motorcycle trades.
Oh, I have a time slip for 116 in the quarter (not a full power pass), and a trophy for "First place, dragboat division" at Autorama. The boat's had some wear and tear since Autorama though, plus a few "Mickey Mouse" add-ons, all of which could be cleaned up.

I'll probably have it out at Brower on Saturday if anyone wants to see it, but I don't expect to have time to clean it up first. :)

The neatest thing about this boat is that it's not really stressing to run that fast. 100 mph is 5200 rpm, and I've never had any kind of engine failure in about 15 years of use.

Warp Factor's boat is an awesome piece.
Driving it is what got me started on a tunnel V drive. :)devil
