Beautiful boat. Benny is a true master when it comes to building rivited hulls.. There is NOBODY that can even come close to his talent and quality.

This motor is gonna make just a couple more ponies :lol: and ill be spraying 300 to it. And my 9 blade is onky 78inches cause of the cage on my raceboat.
Sounds rank. I'm looking at about the same HP for one of my new boats and curious how that 9-blade compared to either a straight 10-blade or the 3 or 4 blade R type blades. Keep me posted on our your new setup!

Your right Mike he is the best and its plenty fast enough. I could have gone lighter but I like going over stuff and sometimes just flat out running hard so I went 125 thousanths. Its a super free boat and would recommend Benny Webb in a heartbeat as he is also a class act!

Will do. I woukd stay away from the straight 10.... blades to close together . Looks in the pics I think the night rider put up a pic of bobby ryders boat. Its a 632bbc with way over 1000hp running a staggered 10. If your not gonna be big into racing the 4 blade R is where its at. I still may get one for mine. Im hoping I can cruise under 1500 with the new boat setup in fuel economy mode of course. My jb hull with poly and loaded down woukd cruise around 2300 with the 81-1\2 3bld R turning 5000 and still go where ever I wanted.

Hey Todd, how come everytime someone compliments one of Bennys hulls you gotta knock him and call Don the King of rivited hulls ? Whens the last time Don even got out and bucked a rivit.? Are you Dons spokesman? If Benny wanted to waste his time building race boats he would rule that market too. He is busy building the Airboat equivalent of an AMG Mercedes. The finest craftsmanship and ride for the most discriminating buyer who is willing to spend the money to have the very best. I ride a full deck 12' supercharged original Thurman because it's the classiest rig in the woods. If I want to go fast that's why there is a Chuck Hawk with a 10:1 injected 540 sitting next to it. Just my 2cents

Can't afford av gas no a/c here....I ride 3a to.. If I remember right u would not race a relentless boat that was owned by Tray with ur little 4cyl boat.. If ur don Davis is so fast u could have proved it there right..I race everyone win or loose I have pics to prove it..
