    Jeff Ohai's new 25' Speedster with twin 450Rs. We ran her out in the pool yesterday. Kenny took her full throttle for a moment. Had to make sure the boost was reading :D

    Huh. That was full throttle? I was thinking about 10x as much water moving than what it looked/sounded like....o_O

    Must be pretty quiet motors? Dunno..not a whacker guy....:)

    Congrats to the new owner. That's gonna be crazy fast. Hope everyone running these new big power medium & smaller boats doesn't chase top speed #s until they have plenty of seat time.

    Some people :rolleyes:

    On those OB’s the exhaust exits under water unlike our inboards which exits above water.

    I bet if I directed my exhaust out of my big V8 inboard underwater like an OB it would sound similar.

    I heard a video with that V8 450 on a test stand and it sounds like the V8 we all love when it was NOT submerged in water.

    Great looking boat. Should be a rocket ship

    ^^^ Sitting in a pool vs running on plane. I had a cat with 450's do a speed run by me and they sound pretty damn good. Being fully submerged in a pool does not give you the same sound.

    Maybe someone will put a set of zoomies on an outboard ... that might be what is missing for me.... I love the sound of a V8 at 6krpm!

    Even with the sport exhaust exiting the mid they still sound really muffled, if the sounded in the water like they did out of the water no one would have anything to complain about lol.

    So curious are the cowls really stickered with the 300R stickers or was that just for the boat show?

    They put 300 cowls on it at the boat show because they don’t want someone with a big check book who doesn’t have experience to back it up to buy one. The average outboard guy can tell the difference between the 300s and 450s without using the cowl so it’s not totally stealth.

    Someone would find something to complain about.


    I prefer to evaluate their worth based upon where the rubber meets the road. Last summer I was boating with all the outboard boats on a 100 mile run and they all left me in the dust. Thats all that matters.

    Yep we had 600hp of sewing machine wackers and a MUCH larger boat versus his car motor 700+ hp 27'
    Dave's current boat is gorgeous, just won't hang with twin outboards.

    Is that fair tho? 27’ boat 1 prop versus a boat with 2 motors and 2 props?

    One woman can get you off. But 2 women at the same time will get it done faster no?

    I’m far from that. But rather see your boat and talk about that then us talkin about how great these 450s are when 80% people
    On this site have a payment on there boat.
    I can’t afford the egg beaters. But I have the title Of my boat.
    I’m
    On her everyday and everyone talks in a dream there’s few people on here I have seen with the pockets to afford this.

    I don't have an eliminator or a 450 so pictures of my boats have no relevance to the OP's thread. I'm merely here for moral support.

    You should ask DCB, Eliminator, etc how many people finance their 200k+ boats;)

    I'd like to see a picture of this boat floating. When I first read this thread I didn't realize that the boat is only a 25' Daytona. I bet that thing sits super bow high with those big egg beaters hanging off the back.

    Been waiting for you to try and quote a post of mine on this subject! You claim the eliminator that your dad bought like it’s yours. I’m sure your my age or close to my age(28). But we come from earning my boat and you riding in your dads boat! The title on my boat read my name? What about your boat(your dads)?

    A lot of people are financing boats. Most pay cash but a lot are financing. Just like pre recession. It’s a cycle. When the economy’s doing good people feel they can have somethin out of there reach.

    I could keep up if I had a blower and about 900 hp. Which is an option

    which brings us back to OB with two motors and two props turning at a high RPM which are more efficient

    Someone said your boat couldn’t keep up with another boat with 2 motors. I was just trying to say 1 prop isn’t as efficiently 2.
