    It will be going on a new 22 Liberator and then be for sale after testing. I'm painting the boat now. This is what I started with. [​IMG]

    The boat was set to be sold with 300R, paint work, aluminum trailer, and every available option, for $74,900. The 450R adds $30k. Final price will be $105k. Still alot cheaper than a California boat

    Wow!!!! Aren't you pushing 110-112 with a 300r and that new prop? The 450r is gonna be a whole new ballgame. Can't wait to see what happens.

    I’d sure like to run against the 450 Liberator...it would be epic. I hope it has 122.44 mph in the tank ! I think it just might ??!!! Post up the numbers after you run it, Randy...we are all SUPER INTERESTED in the stats!!

    My 21 Liberator with twin 280’s ran 129 like it was on rails. Not scary at all.

    Ok.... technical question. What’s the fuel burn comparison

    400r at WOT = ? GPH
    450r at WOT = ? GPH

    Where’s that data ? I need it ASAP.

    Was that retail cost, or did you get a discount?

    If I had to guess on the fuel burn at WOT, I would use the 10% rule, which equals about 45 GPH.
