I've had this boat for 4 or 5 years now. Everyone in the world has been calling me to buy it, but the wife says "NO"!This is my "saltwater" boat. I've never cared for center consoles, but this boat is just COOL! The wife absolutely loves it and tells me that I'm not allowed to sell it. It's a 2002 that was bought new by a friend of mine. It was sold a couple times and I rerigged it in 2007. I was offered it in 2014. I called John Cowen about buying a new bare hull a year ago and was considering being a dealer from them. The bare hull price was almost twice what I get a Liberator for, so I gave up on that idea. I just sold the 250 ProXS and Since I can never do anything half-way, the boat will get a new Mercury 300 ProXS V8, new interior, new paint, Sea-Dek floor, Full dash redo with Garmin screen, new bimini top, all new powdercoated railings, rubrail, and every wire and screw in the boat! It really is in pretty good shape. Here's some before pics

Cant wait to see the results. What's the difference between the 300 Pro XS and the 300 R? Thank you and best of luck on your build

WILDMAN
02-25-2019, 07:57 PM
The ProXS is made for bass boats etc. It has a little less HP and not available with sportmaster. It is a couple $thousand cheaper but even harder to get than the 300R. I ordered two last May and still have not seen them

Randy, If you want to sell the guages, shoot me a number you want for them. Need tach, fuel, water pressure and water temp. Also need a hydraulic helm if you want to sell that. Thanks, Mike

$150 for all the guages minus the speedo. Everything on the boat will be for sale, but maybe not the helm cuz it's new.

Who's Idea was the Purple carpet

davemvegas
02-26-2019, 01:09 PM
A T-Top might not be a vision you get often. I think a one could be made that creates shade, and not hurt the style of the boat.

WILDMAN
02-26-2019, 01:59 PM
I used the purple because I already had a piece with the ribbed backing. I don't want a T-top because they only work when the sun is overhead and it slows the boat down 5 mph and it gets in the way sometims due to the height.

It is going back in right?

WILDMAN
02-26-2019, 07:44 PM
Yes. The main reason I bought this boat was for the seats and console. That's what sets it apart from other center consoles.

I have the boat emptied out so I weighed the bare hull. No console or seats though. Total weight was 1463, hull and tank. I always had issues with water coming over the transom, so I'm raising it 7.5". Motor tilting will not be an issue because I'm putting on a 17" PORTA bracket. It has 12.5"of lift. It can lift the bottom of the skeg higher than the bottom of the boat. Guages, switch panels, and compass are for sale.

WILDMAN
03-21-2019, 06:55 PM
I've been working on a new 22 Liberator and 25 Liberator lately, but got grinding on the Superboat transom today. I raised the transom hieght 8 inches. The original lower transom height has alway been a problem with water coming over the back.

WILDMAN
03-28-2019, 06:43 PM
I spent the morning getting the Superboat off the trailer and flipped over. Then I had to figuer out how to get it on a boat cradle upside down. I did all this by myself. Had a few tense moments!

WILDMAN
03-28-2019, 07:02 PM
Now that it's flipped over, I need to clean of the Tannic acid stains from the water we have in Florida. It's created by rotting vegetation. Tannic acid is also what they use to tan leather hides. I use "SNO-BOL toilet cleaner. It removes the stains within 15 seconds. It will also dissolve hard water crust that some lakes have. Just brush it on and hose off with a sponge. The other reason I flipped the boat is because the previous owner had an isue with the boat porpoising so they molded in a 3/8" hook on the bach. You can see how thick it is in the pics. I had to grind is all off and put a skim coat of filler to get rid of any grind marks. The bottom is perfectly straight now. The bodywork will get gelcoated since it's on the bottom. The rest of the boat will be paint.

Bodywork is done on the back of the transom. I'll prime next. I'll do the inside when the boat gets flipped back over. All console holes are also glassed in.

Of course he likes Trump-he is a worker that has no interest in relying on the government for anything. He, his wife, and another couple came over here and started in N.Y. working for a friend that started up a moving company. Then he drove Taxi cabs, and eventually got into fiberglass lamination and boat construction. His wife is an educated science researcher that worked for the university as a "doctor" and doesn't do anything but send the money (that Rustem bust his ass to make) back to her family because the government has stripped them of everything over there.

Going to try a 26 or 28 4 blade Performer first. 15.25" diameter. Should run about 80 I'm thinking.

I think you be going faster than 80 with the 300?

WILDMAN
04-09-2019, 07:37 AM
It's about 2500 lbs fully rigged. It only ran 77 with a 300x and 70 with a 250 Pro XS. It did have that huge hook in the bottom that was added though.

JBS
04-09-2019, 09:18 AM
With that bottom work and the 300r and your expertise, I was thinking at least mid 80s?

I got the Superboat flipped back over and on the cradle today. I'll finish the bodywork on the inside of the transom and then paint will start. In the first pic, I had a bigger grab bar made for behind the seats. The original was 1.25" diameter. This one is 2.5". All the rails and bars will be powdercoated bright yellow.

WILDMAN

I got the inside of the transom all finished. It is now 8" taller to keep water from coming over the back. After blocking it out, will come paint

300R is the plan, but I'll need to put a 300xs on it until I can get the 300R. I am putting $38k INTO this boat in just parts, no labor. That includes the motor. I won't be selling this one. It's my "SALTWATER" boat.

WILDMAN

Got the interior back. All colors are the carbon fiber look. I also put the new transom plate and Porta baracket on. The bracket has 17" setback and 12" of lift. Motor is a 2017 300xs for now until I can get a 25" 300R. I also put an 8ft BLADE Powerpole on the back and swim platform.

I bet wildman works till crazy hours to get this work done. 60 hr+ weeks for weeks on end. Can't get any helper to stay 40 hrs much less more. Some of theses paint procedures require a go till it's done work ethic. Sometimes you might have a 18 hr work day. I made my money and gave it up for a cushy job while I was still not isocyanate and styrene saturated. (yes i'm a wuss) I went thru more helpers than I can remember. Finally gave it up.

THE BOAT IS FINALLY DONE!! The yellow roll bar that was behind the seats was made wrong and pushed the seat too far forward, so that has to be re-made. I am also getting the bimini top redone in black with yellow trim. Other than that, it going to the water tomorrow. Motor is a 2017 25" 300XS. Remember, I raised the transo 8" to keep water from coming over the back.

Too nice to use. I would park it in my building and just look at it.

Hope you have sent these pics to Superboat to showcase. Also, in the pics, the gearcase had a left hand prop on it?

Yes, it has a new LH gearcase on it. That's the way I bought the motor. I'd sell it if you know anyone who needs a LH 25" case.

So how did it run?

The previous owner put a "hook" in the bottom to cure the porpoise issue. I took it out and now it hops bad. I put some weight in the front which helped alot, but I need to fine tune it, put the hook back, or put tabs on it.

Just go with a set of tabs. Useful for other reasons with that type of CC

It would me nice to figure out the issue with these CC Linder hulls other than the band aid approach.
I 'm guessing the lack of weight in the bow due to the missing fore deck.
How much set back are you running?

Beautiful build. Do you know in what other ways the hook would affect the performance of the hull? Im curious if you put it back or just decided to go with tabs.

No tabs because I don't want to mess with them every time I want to open it up. I put 150 lbs of sand bags in the nose compartment for now. Scott Porta has some idea to correct the bottom issues.

If its not too secretive can you post up his solution?

It's putting in some flares by the 2nd set of strakes. Kind of like a hook, but much smaller

How did it work out Randy?

My thought would be it porpoises because it doesn't have the leverage to carry bow????? My super does the same thing but not real bad and stops at about 60. I tried moving the battery to the bow but saw no real difference.
