    Question Laser LTV ModVP Question/Information inquiry

    Ive been reading on SnF for months now but have yet had a reason to post as there is a TON of information on this site already. I have a question: Can anyone provide me with some information on a 1984 LTV ModVP? I have come across one that is fairly decent shape, the gel is a little dull, there are no stress cracks, the transom is solid... it comes completly rigged with a 150 Yami that is in good working order and a trailer. The guy is asking $3,000, which seems to be a good price but I am not too sure... How does the boat handle small chop(1-2ft)How fast would it be with the 150? And would it get a little out of hand with a 200 BlackMax?I know they a prone to blow over at 90 or so. I would not plan on running the boat over 80, EVER. I would be using the boat in NJ bays, will I be getting the snot beat out of me??Thanks !Jason

    i had two and anything over 1foot chop is not good there very easy to drive you can do 70-80mph and drink a cup of coffee driving it. you should have no-problem doing mid to high 80's with the backmax. and as far as propping the boat you dont wanna use any prop that has bow lift the boat packs in very good air.. laserED is the man to talk to on here he knows alot about them.. hope my info helps..

    Is it a true ModVp? If so it will have the narrow deck which is the best one to have. That boat will handle the chop just fine as long as you stay on top of it.
    If you are unsure you can post a picture and we can help you with it. BTW it will love the Merc. you can put a 260 on it if you wanted to.

    LTV`s are very quick in a drag race but will give a rough ride in chop. Mine was light so i made sure not to wonder out to far on big lakes.

    I loved it tho.

    Thank you for all the information so far. As it sits with the 150 on it, about 4 inches of set back and an unknown prop(I know alot of the this depends on the pro) how fast would you guess the boat is? The current owner bought the boat in an estate sale and has never gotten it wet.

    @ OldSTV: I don'd have pictures, but it seems to me to have a "SKI" deck. Sits two across up front(traditional) and the two facing one another in the back. Sort of a strange set up..... The hull is a ModVP hull or at least it is what I think a ModVP hull would look like. However it is not a race boat. I am new to the tunnel/ModVP hulls. I have always had V's. Im looking for a fun bay/river boat and this seemed like a great deal.

    Jay J,

    That looks to be the boat, different deck tho. The lines are the exact same aside from having a wider cockpit.

    Then you have the ski version. It is still a good boat just not as rare.
    I had one like that before I got the race version that Jay showed in the picture. With a 200hp merc. it would run in the 80s in the quarter mile. They make great ski boats and are fun boats in general.

    race deck for sure but doesn’t inherently mean it was a race boat.
