Microboats - can they run?

Important info for those on this list! I add a link to everyone's boat on the list.

Treat this link as your home page/post for your boat . You can update/edit it any time. Pics / info/what have you. That way people looking at the list can click on anyone's link to see more info about that particular boat.

Whenever you update your 'home' post, just make sure to let us know by posting a new post on this thread. Edited posts don't send out notifications.New Posts Do.


===========================================

Okay, I've been really involved (forum wise) with a handful of 'microboats' lately. IE: Smaller single engine I/O's.

I am using the term 'micro' to mean 'small or smaller than average.' It is not being used as 'tiny' or 'the smallest' or 'miniature' or anything like that.

Note: again, these aren't really 'micro's' in true essence of the term but it makes many of us feel that way when most talk is about 32-40'+ boats.

I've been thinking that a Microboat (smaller boat) in this thread should be less than 23 ft in actual length (not counting swim platforms)- a V Hull and I/O (sterndrive)

Below are boats that have been added. You post to this and meet the requirememnts and I edit/add it to this list. It is really growing quick !


===========================================


GEOO - '75 Donzi X-18 - 123mph? Take a look people !!!
https://www.speedwake.com/photopost/d...96CT_River.AVI


Edited 10/02/06 - above boat does have an arneson, so yes, against my prerequisites, however I didn't really think someone would be crazy enough to add an Arneson surface drive on a microboat, so that wasn't even a thought. Anyway - I'm leaving it there cause it so damn badd azz !!!!

Oh, yes, speeds must be GPS. You can only fib with MPH only if it's under what it actually runs. See example above.

Updated 6/4/08

Her's a pic of my Monterey 2000SS (19ft'r minus platform) with 5.7 260hp / Alpha drive. It's actually counted as a 20ft by the factory - apparently they include the swim platform which is exactly 1 ft.

Update 6/4/08:
With our lakes newly imposed 45mph speed limit I've decided to make this Micro go a little faster. It has received some motor work last summer that got me to 36mph speedo.

60 must be movin in that !

It's taken a few props swaps to find one that will run 60. It's a little loose if you get some are under it at 60 because I have to run a TON of trim to get there. But it will run there for miles and miles and miles. Gotta love small blocks.

Nope, sorry. Just out of the Microboat range.

But very impressive !

Kid and Velocity Driver - I am counting length without Swim Platform.

Measure them up and see if you sneak under the 23ft I set forth.

If both of you don't sneak under this, I still am impressed by the speeds from your 'smaller' boats.

540cid in a 23'ft Velocity - that will be somethin.

Ok - measure up - I want to include anybody I can.

23 foot Raven countach.

Its actually 22'6" including the swim platform. Never GPS's it, but the best I've seen on the speedo is 50mph, so I'd guess somewhere around 45 GPS. Not fast by any means, but you gotta start somewhere.

Oops CFM:
We need to edit your first post...
I have never hit 79.5. I sure hope I didn't post that somewhere. If I did, it was a typo......

My best yet has been 78.2.

Hey watch who you're calling 'micro' buddy! Ehem....just not compensating for anything else.

Are you allowed to post if your speedo has never worked?

89 Chaparral 23'4" Too heavy to run fast, 454 mildly worked over. I'll do the low rule for fairness, 55ish if I can believe the Formula running next to me one day.

My fine Home Depot tape measure, measures 22'8" to the start of the platform. Title says it 23', I might be off 1-2" trying to measure with the windshield.

Putting the engine in, I had to be a contortionist...

needmoreboat - a little too big. Not quite a Micro. I do like those.

speter4205 - we need a GPS for all fairness. You can guess low, but it has to be real low for me to post it. See my example.


detideoneon - you fit in bud ! Just not Micro or Large. 24ft is really good size for most all aspects of boating.
