    Volvo Speedmasters

    You never see these things around anymore. There are 4 of them from 3 different people on EBay right now. Here is one of them. They are asking pretty hefty money for all of them but again you never see them. I used to run a couple of them years ago. Big HP and step hard on the gas would blow the gears out the side.

    I've seen several others listed over the years. More the past 6 months than ever before. They must be ok on low HP or they'd just be on the scrap pile. 250hp on a 18' Donzi?

    They pop up regularly on offshoreonly.
    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.


    I refuse to allow common sense to interfere w/my boat buying decisions.

    Total junk... gearsets are small and would pop with anything over 300hp.

    I ran a couple healthy big blocks behind them but you had to ease into it when you planed off. Got rid of them and rigged boat with #3's
