This is an excellent boat and motor package. The interior is in great shape. has lead foot throttle. all lights and gauges work. built in fuel cell. 7 psi fuel pump/filter system brand new this season. seats 4. all leather is in good condition no tears or rips. the engine is compression tested at 140 and leak down tested as well all details have been marked on the block. has CLE lower unit. drilled exhaust. very clean engine. has the trim unit built into the transom bracket. the trailer is in good condition all lights work. wheel bearings are good. I have had the boat GPS'd at 92 MPH with a 32 4 blade hump back. with some more fine tuning its easily a 100 MPH boat.

Just curious, it's a Pro Comp Ski deck so what makes it a drag? I see the stern really sits high out of the water, Is it a light layup and that's why your calling it a drag? I wish mine sat that high.


It might help if you gave more info about the motor such as HP, model, etc.

Good luck with the sale

The engine is a 260 HP 2.5 Bridgeport. Has boysen reeds. The engine is 1989. Has carbs not to sure what the carbs are if their is anything special about them. From what I am told what makes it a drag is the weight reduction and yes the stern is exceptionally higher that way you dont need to have a jack plate on hence more weight reduction. If you have any further questions get back to me I will do my best to answer.

Thanks

Check out the step in the side of the sponson. These were shallow tunnel drag hulls.
I assume this is a McPherson built boat.

yes im not sure of the term but the bottom of the sponson cup inwards to trap the air in turn lifting the boat higher out of the water

look closely at the bottom in the first pic..there's a step up in the hull..Its a mcferson(spelling?) built boat. its one of the 8 boats built like this. my friend has #1. they are great boats. from what we where told they gets hairy while slowing down from a high speed. we experienced it for a fact. While running 95+ the plug from the ecm (merc 260) got loose and the engine just shut off. it hooked so bad it threw the driver out of the boat and the passenger ended up in the back seat! no one was injured badly..boat was fine.

you sold my friend your 32 cleaver not to long ago...dunno if you remember

his hull vin number is something like : costmraceboat001

Interesting... so shallow tunnels, a step in the sponson, and lighter weight? I wonder how much lighter than a standard Pro Comp Ski? I've never weighed mine, but it's not a lightweight.

I wonder if there is a top end tradeoff in speed or handling (besides the aforementioned deceleration characteristics) for the additional drag race performance or if the hull is just a better all around performer than a standard Pro Comp Ski.


Regardless, you've got an interesting boat.

So Matt,
Have you experienced any handling issues while decelerating or for that matter, on your way up? Would like to take this from you. Thought all STVs were rock steady?

I have never once had any issues with handling and I push the limits in this boat and has never once failed. I can understand if your engine shuts down at 100mph like the other guy was talking about but any boat would snake out on you. Its my favorite boat so far. The only reason why I am getting rid of it is because I have an Allison project on the go and need some more funding. If you are serious about buying email my personal email bradbury_01@hotmail.com and we can work out the details a lot quicker. Thanks
