Those guys do some nice paint work.

I’d imagine if we came up with a design that has a “belt” cap stripe, they could cap it and contain their repair to that belt. If that makes any sense?
Makes perfect sense. I gotta hop on the phone...

There is a pretty good deal on a canyon in New Mexico. It’s listed on dragboatcity.com. There is a Cole also but it’s got a blue oval for power and he won’t sell without the ford in it.

Ohhhh shit! Here we go!

Flat flat or a runner? I have one of each, both Hondo's. I'll keep my eyes peeled. I was up your way last weekend and hung with 3 flats and another Carrera. Hoping to have my newest addition in the water next season and will make the drive up for sure!

She's still for sale for $8,999.


Nobody has checked her out yet. Just have had typical tire kickers.

I was thinking about crusing her up to Pirates Den this weekend!

I don't really care about selling her. I just have 2 upcoming projects (New 1975 Patterson and rebuilt P76 Cracker) that I could use some side dough for.

Ross is selling his Bezer minus motor.
Since I know you're intimately familiar with Bezers, a question.
This Bezer is obviously well endowed with power. When this or these hulls are rigged, with consideration to engine placement, V-drive, strut angle etc, I'm assuming these angles and dimensions are intended to conform with the horsepower and intended purpose.
If you purchase one, like this one as an example, are you constrained to similar HP and purpose, unless you perform modifications ?

Yeah nice Cole but .....the Ford. I was wondering if there was a market for the plant.

Here's is ad.

Kicking around the idea of putting my engine in something else. Any interest in my Bezer out there. It would be ready to roll less engine. You get motor plates and tank to pump fuel line -16, and waterline exits (2)-10’s. $25,000 on an R&S road trailer. New prop, new prop shaft, plates, blast plate, and bottom done by Billy B.
I don’t need to sell, I don’t want to sell unless this other deal is able to happen, and $25k is the number. Boat handles very well, runs over 140mph with my power plant.

You're correct to a point. Most guys run longer plates and the engine farther back with the bigger power. They often share strut angles or they're pretty close, but I've seen struts farther forward on boats specifically rigged for SS. I wouldn't want a more forward strut with big power, but that's just me. Sometimes the same set up works fine with lower HP (SS) but traditionally engine placement is farther forward a little and the plates are shorter. Gearing is different too obviously.

He's a head porter/engine builder that works for Chris straub @ straub technologies. He's a relatively quiet member here and on perf. Boats forum.

Scott Foxwell. He's earned himself a top shelf reputation over the years! Very talented dude!

He has a bad ass 427 Fairlane that you would love!

Hmmm. Why not one like this?

Its more fuel efficient, Lower insurance, less maintenance and its almost as fast? 😂
