    Here we go. Calling this Project 27. Cause I have about that many going on right now. So I thought buying another boat would be a good idea.

    Good Luck w/your Velocity. I love mine.
    I've not seen an outboard version up close. Looks like a huge cockpit w/out the motor area.

    Since it is already rigged for twins the cost effective thing to do would be to find a couple 250's or better.

    Cool brochure. I really like the race deck. I am having a hard time dealing with the tall windshield I have.
    For power it is going to be twin 2.5 200 efi for a while.

    I think it will spank Black Betty. It might like jack plate with a 10 or 12 inch set back. I never tried it but, I bet it will like it. Get the engines tight together [ like 18 inches ]with side mount steering. The front mount set ups won't let you get them very tight[ like 26 inches].

    The motors now are on like 28 centers. It is rigged for OMC power now. I have new front mount cylinders so will probable stay with them. I can get to 23" centers

    Here is project number 1 Jenni's Mini broke a valve.

    If you're talking about the Cooper vs the boat, it's more like 30 vs 1.5

    Car vs truck that we just put an 8" lift and 37" tires. Still got 12 mpg towing, but it is still 100 miles to work and back.

    Mini Cooper is a finished up, with Jenni terrorizing the streets. Now time for more important things, Boats.

    Nice new trailer with detachable hitch.

ID:	75084Had to re drill the motor mounts that were a 28" on center. I played with the Sea star rams and offset them somewhat. I got the centers down to 20". I did lose some steering range, but should look and performer better.

    Being a construction guy, I totally missed the hitch being gone on the first set of pics.....I was too busy thinking about drywall and marking the studs on the floor.
