Headed up to 3 dunes yesterday with some family and friends and a few boats. Nice run, it was windy but the cig loves the chop and rough 😉 got up there and chilled out for a while. Buddy with his M35 with 1550’s rolls up to hang out and yells for me to come take a ride. So I grab my 11 y/o son, daughter and her friend and we go for a couple hot laps outside 3- dunes and up to havasu springs. Great run. It’s been a while since I’ve been in a 1350/1550 boat. Those mercs pull sofa king hard!!

Some pics and video.

Everyone was digging this Nice schiada

That m35 has to run hard with those 1550s. M35xl runs his shit wide open to 176 I’m curious what another 400 horse will do.

It was reported at the time it was built it was the fastest DCB ever at low 190’s. 😳
Damn that’s badass. Could possible still be the fastest dcb. Unless bob teagues m31 would give it a run for its money but I think he’s said that’s just a pleasure boat for him.

A lot of boats down there for mid October. Looks like a great day on the water.

Great post Tank, thanks for sharing with us. I tried to follow that M35 up to dangling rope in my M31 700 boat during the 2018 Lake Powell Challenge. He was GONE! I was also at the 2018 GLOC Shootout when Shawn owned the boat. Tony C. drove it to a blistering 170MPH in the shootout in the July heat. Crazy fast!!
The Cig is looking good buddy......

Nice to see the cafe running again.
Man, we’ve run the piss out of it all week. It’s been in the water since Thursday the 8th. Ran it from needles to havasu a couple times. Been then from the channel to havasu springs a couple times. Running great. Those max machine works plates off the drives are freakin AMAZING! pull the drives in, no tab, hops on plane. Run neutral to no tab 90% of the time drives kicked out to 5.
Few things to address, gotta put bigger props on as it’s under propped with 26 4 blades right now. Gonna try 28’s and maybe some 5 blades. it’s going to paint next week and then gets seadek floors in. Then should be ready to come home and head out in the ocean.

Thanks brother!!! Cigs still got some work to be done but damn the family’s been enjoying the crap out of it this week.

Yeah, that M35 is fast. I believe Shawn was the last owner if I’m not mistaken. Good news was he sent the motors back to Merc for the full rebuild before my buddy bought it. 😁👍 those rebuilds are no joke! 🤮🤮

Definitely badass. Gotta be a hell of a rush.
I was looking forward to seeing the 31’ with 1,400’s go at it on the 3/4 mile shootout. Doesn’t look like they’ve really chased top end on it. Bummer

If they were I’m sure they’d see low 170’s. We did 170 in the green M31 with 1350’s a few years back.

Sure wish I could figure out why these vids refuse to play on the Android phone with Chrome or the computer with Firefox.

Hope someone posts solution for your system.The vid just struck me that a kid riding in that boat will never forget it.Kids see that experience in movies and games very seldom first hand.Incredible video of speed and talent driving that boat.
Plus a great example of why someone would name that type of boat “Pantie Dropper”. :)

Thanks brotha! Kinda what I’m going for with the kids. Expose them to this lifestyle so they catch the bug and want to work hard so they can play hard too. 😉👍
