Can't wait to see the progress videos on this build. Congrats @cyclone and props to @Gelcoater for the amazing gel work, and Eliminator boats for brining the 21 back.

define "way better". i'm curious.
Just fuckin around with the typicals of RDP Mike. Both the 21 Daytona and the 21 Cougar MTR are great boats. I just happen to own an old school 21 MTR. So I'm biased 👍. The only thing that I have actually found to be better with the Cougar vs the Daytona (old style hull and deck, which yours is not) was the fact that a V-drive was very easy to set up and handle. It was all about the height of the center sponson.

ha ha. i wonder what he likes about the Cougar more than a Daytona. Like is the bottom different? better? When it's running, I'll be glad to line mine up against his and see which is "better". :)
Mike, yours is already better than mine. Lol.
But if you ever want to check it out let me know 👍

Yup. The Cougar 21 MTR was way better.

I don't know about jets, but in a v-drive, Cougars seems to be the preferred boat from people that have owned both. @Jocko would know more about the bottoms.

My buddy had a 21 Daytona that went 143 with a fairly mild, single carb deal with a big shot of nitrous and a shorty drive.

Your Daytona will be off the charts with whatever you have planned for power.

Do you still have yours? Likely one of the coolest 21’s in the West.
I do, its been in storage for the last 2 1/2 yrs. McClure build a new pump for it & I stepped on the motor program some more. Just waiting to get my garage back so I can put it together and attend the next Schiada regatta. :oops:

I'm a fan of this one. :) It ran pretty good when I finished it. Ran 105 off the bottle. 125 on the bottle. It had all the goodies that Mike is gonna use. Except I imagine he will have significantly more HP. I ran 1100 on mine, If he does that Sonnys in his it should move pretty good. MPD jet drive, jet away, MPD low pro intake. Bennett did the bottom, identical to what Mike had him do to his new one. I'll probably buy it back some day, but right now I'm enjoying my 25.

I ran data on mine for a long time getting the setup right. There is a lot to tweak on these to really get them right, especially with a low pro intake.

the hovercraft was super fun until it blew out a side skirt and sent me over the bars. lol
looked like it happened fast...haha

Glad you were able to walk it off:)
