Lately when I bought a Carson CVX17 with a 140 OMC I was very impressed with the performance. The 140 goin on the Viper produces a LOT more hp than stock and only weights about 265 lbs. Couldn't walk away from that as I really have wanted a "hot rod". But then again if I saw an XS ya never know! BTW I may have found a 40hp 15" Tiller Merc for my 11' SLT inflatable....look out 200 hp PWCs!!!! Gary
    I get it Gary, but you do have a rare opportunity here. I am going to pick up my XS from Canada in January. In the process of my search I found 2 others for sale right now... just saying.

    That easily could be Earl Benz or one of the other race drivers on the payroll. Earl took Dad to 120mph although he was not supposed to exceed 90 with a dealer on board.

    Well Dad is now a sprite of just 84 boating seasons. A true treasure to be with. I found his Dealer Conference Member bracelet. I will get it cleaned up and put up a post. No news of old Dealers? It was a hey day for sure. Cheers.
