This one has an EFI 2.5 / 150.. Kind of a weird motor.

It's going to Joe at Hot Laps.. :p We are gonna give it a clean bill of health, and then start working on it little by little and documenting gains.

Next week the boat is going to go to Brad at E Ticket to get the transom fixed.

Haven't seen a good clear bottom picture. Are these Daytona's a Mod VP, with pronounced tunnels, because the one pic of the Black and Orange one racing the Enduro looks more like an exaggerated chine than a tunnel. But black bottom and shaded, hard to see.

it's a semi V with large outside chines. Not a tunnel..

Those center chines make it almost a flat keel like a Hydrostream. Cool boats.

Great pics, thanks 👍
Is that a turn fin I see 3/4 the way to the stern ? Daytona, same company known for their Biesemeyer GN copy ? Is this bottom one off, or based off the GN design ?

Can't find much info out there on Daytonas other than by Eliminator.
I'm pretty sure it's the Biesemeyer jet boat bottom.

RD nice looking Hull, I'm just curious how much over the coast guard H.P. rating is that mercury o/b motor on that particular make & model hull ?
