DM Build Thread: 490" RHS Powered CR Raptor

Post by DynaMarine » Mon Nov 16, 2015 11:44 am

We have the opportunity to build a really kick ass boat his fall and I want to thank Scott Smith for that opportunity. It's taken a couple different shapes since we first started discussing his new boat build and its morph'd into one seriously killer boat.

We settled on a sleek custom 16' Raptor, radius rigging and a nasty 490ci RHS from TurnKey Engine Supply providing the heartbeat of this bad boy. A counter rotator setup, staggered all uni 9-blade saber props from Sensenich and a killer JL Audio sound system ought to set it off right.

Can't forget custom Buttraxx seats, design yet to be determined!

Stay tuned as this sweet piece comes together

Well the motors on the dyno and making some noise....740hp/690tq and had a little more left in it. Not too shabby for a pump gas naturally aspirated motor. With 90% of peak torque on tap from 3000-6000rpm it ought to turn some prop!

Thanks for telling a little about the engine Shane.

I went to explore on their web site but could not determine exactly which engine you had decided to use. Look forward to following the build and seeing it run one day here soon.

That's going to be one amazing boat Shane. Shoot if you can have that thing ready by howl at the moon that'll be a lot faster than any of these Florida builders get it done

Well, it took me over a year after I started so...yeah I know I suck :lol:



Anyways, it's looking like another great build for Dynamarine :thumbleft:

Does anyone else make a step hull that big?
