I'm sure your post is going to bring out plenty of opinions. How about some performance numbers on the new rig, it looks pretty good to me. I see you also kept those "fish-on" rod holders.

You are a NUT.
I'm green with envy.

Your going to need more fuel then those small tanks can hold. You also might want to get some tie down straps for the rest of the gear.
Don't be shy, let her fly!

You're going to need a parachute.
If you have a bimini, your prop will also function as a propeller.

He just swapped the cowling.

I must admit, your fuel tanks may be on the small side but you do have a pair of cohonas that make that Big Johnson look ridiculous.
Have fun and please report some data.

Predicted speed formula yields top speed of 60mph (gross weight of 2500lbs and K=200) and 67mph (gross weight of 2000lbs and K=200) but this is for water borne hulls and maybe doesn't apply at all. I have a 21 Revenge (1975) with a Merc 200 EFI and it will hit 55mph anytime and close to 60 on a cool (below 70 degrees) day. I would love to see the performance data on this rig!

I think you guys are trying to make up for some other shortcomings.
I'm just kidding...lighten up.
How about a 250 on my Dauntless 14.

good eye 4runner and barney..indeed it was a cowling swap...the 225 efi 2stroker cowl is the same one used on the 115hp efi 4 stroker...
would have been interesting...but I think I lack the big cahones to take on that test run WOT..although the 225 opti would have been a better choice...thats what replaced the 225 efi...@ 598lbs...that engine swap kicked my butt..my back...

Do not want to derail thread but thought it was interesting.
Not a whaler but since were are talking about Wild hp and wild speeds check this out in a 23 foot offshore boat 90 Mph. This was posted by a reputable marine surveyor.
