Just dropped a new engina in my boat, so I'm not buying, but always looking.

I thought it would be fun, and likely a service to all the other members to post stuff we find that makes us shake our heads.

With the price of gas going up, and the season nearing the 1/2 mark, and add a shot of economy, I see some frantic moves happening..

Check this out - bargain basement as far as I can see:

Badass boats for sure!!

I think this is a pretty amazing deal espescially considering what a new bare hull would cost...I'm real tempted to sell my hull, get another outboard, close off the transom and have me a 100 mph boat. Or I could go with the single 502 and get real close....

I'd like to see exactly what condition that hull is in. Hmmmm....my mom lives pretty close to there and I'm visiting her next week!

I would too!!

They are built tough, but its damn hard to tell from that picture what kinda shape its in.

Keep it bare bones, drop a healthy big block in it, throw an all white paint job on it, run it in P5 or even P4 and haul the mail!!

I am wondering if that hull is the owner's old hull, looks a lot like the boat he used to race, but I think that one is a single and I think his was twins, not sure....

I'm wondering if it was the "Team Progression" Factory 1 boat from few years back?

Thats the one that I am wondering about.

I cant access youtube from work but there is a video of a 27 running in factory 1 from buffalo or something...I think in race trim they were running about 90....

I know the 27 with 2 300x's on the back cracked 100....I'm curious what kinda single BB power it would take to crack 100 ?

the wheels are turning. I think I sold my jeep for 5 grand this morning.....

I'm sure a simple phone call to kevin would answer any and all questions about the boat...but I'd hate to bug him until my jeep does atcually sell.

I've yet to find a used one for under 100k. I know a few years back in Canada they were well over 150 new.

If I deliver my jeep on Saturday I may make a road trip :D

Yup, thats the boat, the picture of it hanging from the crane is on their website also. If I remember correctly that boat hit something and got busted up, which wouldn't worry me too much if Progression did the repair.

# 454

Driver: Kevin Loughran

Throttleman: Scott Hodum




I'd imagine that Kevin Loughran is the owner of progression, never knew his last name, but it all makes sense.

I took this pick at Point Pleasant, NJ back in '02. They didn't have a good day. That race cockpit would be a BADD-AZZ setup!

anytime you get towed in its not a good day :laugher:

It looks like the race hatch is still on the boat too....I agree, that would be tits, to cruise around in.

Plus the way I run my boat, I can never fill the back seat anyway lol.

The "amazing deals" is why I now own 2 boats. Couldn't pass up the deal. There are some great deals out there. I'm not certain how long they will last, or if they will get better, but sometimes you just gotta say, what the......
