    Default So you think your boat is fast??

    If and when i ever get another boat here's what type i'm getting!! You guys all think those 24-28' metal boats go so good with 3-500 horsepower strapped on the back of them Check out this rig, its a 36 or 38' lobsterboat and listen to her purr when he pours the coals to'er

    bet i could put one of those metal boats on the back deck and still do 20knots

    Default 20 knots?

    I have a 30' aluminum with twin 150's and can go almost 40 knots. And that's with 200 plus gallons of fuel on board. Just think what it could do with twin 350's... That lobster boat wouldn't stand a chance.

    Heck, you don't need tons of hp with a good hull design. The offshore catamarans will go over 100mph with twin 300hp o/b's.


    Even if you're burning 60gph, that's 1.7 mpg, not bad for any boat running 600 hp, and especially not bad for one that can get you from Whittier to Montague in under and hour

    Default That would be a little more than scary

    Going that fast and hit something in the water, log/whale/debris. Whoopsie.

    Put a 26' metal boat on your deck and see how fast you go??? Thats what i meant by still going 20 knots.

    Default Boat

    Well I had my fat ***** inlaws on the boat, the they probably weight as much as a 26' boat. They are so big that I was afraid the natives were going to break out the harpoons.

    Default not that fast ... but not bad

    Saturday evening about 6:00 pm, joining the croud heading into to Seward, the trrottle started creaping up around lowell point and before you know it I was up to 40 mph with I think a Boulton 22 or 24 (spam can) who was trying to hang with .. Hahaha, I jumped to 44 mph at 4600 rpm and the hot rod started to disappear,

    I am sorry, I cannot help myself sometimes, but those guy's in the lobstar boats would blow me into the kelp fronds, seaweed ... etc.

    Wasting gas is a foolish thing, just cruise at 30 and chill

    If you listen you will notice that was a turbo charged diesel. Not nearly as hard on the fuel consumption as a gasser.

    Default I was listening

    , waiting for it to blow up for a while before it smoothed out!

    There is a faster way off the mountain, might hurt a little though.
