770guy is on a distinguished road


Got the boat back from getting keel fixed. Now the fun can begin. I probably will start a new restoration thread.

Dropped the boat off at a local place Proboat.

1. Entire interior removed and redone to original.
2. Brand new XR drives
3. Engine bay gutted. Painted. Stringers/bulkheads beefed up
4. 496 engines with 250 blowers. May go bigger but 750hp each is what I told them was a minimum.
5. All new lavorsi gauges
6. Imco steering
7. Dana marine tabs
8. New windshield (every panel)
9. Once boat is gutted it's getting every ding/chip and discoloration fixed.
10. New hatch lift cylinder (may do dual)
11. 4 batteries with billet mounts

I am setting my expectations low IMHO so hopefully I am not disappointed but I want at least 90mph. 1500hp I think will get it there.

Gonna be a good winter!

Attached are a couple more pics when I picked the boat up.
