Model Owned: '90 Starliner with FrankenRude III while Frank IV is conceived

Default '91 Starliner, no power, as new.

This was to be my final Mad Max motor project hull but I'm out of time and motivation and another long term project has surfaced.

I've re-rigged it the way I wanted it so massive power wouldnt break or wreck it.
Currently has 18" of set back w/turnbuckle transom supports. They are trick and well done.
10" of the set back is a hydraulic Bobs w/gauge.

I converted to hydraulic steering. Steering and plate hose are run thorough bulkhead connectors w/custom hoses. Very trick, very clean.

Also has a dual pyro, depth finder, ship to shore, new (remote) smart phone compatible stereo.

Deck has been buffed since these shots.

There is one seam on the bench seat base that is pulling lose but otherwise, interior is as new.

Trailer is tandem axle w/alloy wheels, new bearings, brakes, guide posts and a spare.

When I bought it it had the orig '91 225 OMC on it and ran a best of 56 MPH.
This was GPS not hypothetical like some claims Ive seen.
W/8" of set back and a decent wheel, I saw 64 w/that motor.

W/the now 18" of set back, it has totally change the personality of the boat!
Ive seen negative reports of similar set ups but I absolutely love its new personality.
Think-went from wet bottom, heavy ski boat ride to, light fast, aired out Allison.
Plus, the 18" of set back comes from the 10" hydraulic, 6" manual and 2" spacers so make it what you want.

Unfortunately my boat repair business has kept me too busy to finish dialing my Franken motor to see what she really has.

This hull was to be for a V-8 project but after two still born attempts, Ive decided to let it sacrifice itself for the greater good.

Im sure Ill regret this.

Thanks all.

W/existing set up, a strong 225+ motor and a decent wheel this would be an 80 MPH rock and absolute blast to drive.

W/the plates all up, prop shaft is approx 1" above bottom.
Interestingly, even at that height and a full tank, it jumps on plane, no slip w/a stock 26" Raker.
