I know a guy with 18ft boat that would out do yours in squares and I'm sure it is heavier than yours too. :D

I'll see if he would be interested in this.

Well, I will say this, the boat of Predators was built to do one thing, and one thing only, and thats run the woods. Like Thunder said, Lets just race! Through the woods, no weighing of boats, pink slips, or time limits! An old school race! Who cares if you boat is bigger, who cares if his is smaller, just race!

I do agree with you on this 100%...we have to have more people get involved in these issues we see everyday. If not involved, here then at least in the local clubs.

A picture with Cntry...I wouldn't know where to put it....all my closets are full!!!!! :p



Well, I have decided that it must have been a Continental because those are obviously Continental jugs and the intakes were definitely on top, not on the bottom.

I also think it was a GPU becuase it only had one mag, and I'm sure all true aircraft motors have to have two mags.

The guy either didn't really know what size motor he had-maybe that's what the previous owner told him-or he just says it is a 720 becuase it sounds better, and most people wouldn't notice anyways.

Thanks for the help

I just feel asking a A/C motor boat to add weight for a race is the same as him asking a car motor guy to take out some horsepower! So to be fair the Predator A/C must weigh 2000 pound and CT141'S car motor must remove a 175HP and only make 300HP now were just like Nextel cup everything must be exactly the same and dead equal. They are different boats and it is not fair to set them up the same.

... I will even race a bass boat through the marsh ..

LOL ok, but only if it is 18' or shorter. Longer bass boats have more surface area
