    I looked up the BMW B220 - a really quick search says it produces 165-190hp. Doesn't that seem under powered?

    Hey, my old stomping grounds. I lived very nearby for about 25 years! Weird place to find that boat posted, not much big water around there! At least its almost guaranteed to be a freshwater only boat.

    Same as your 24 right Nova?

      Yeah and mine had a 220 BMW. Would top out around 35 mph. A little bit different layout inside.

        Couple videos of it running and me getting smoked by Aaron in his 21' with a SBC. I really liked the BMWs but wish they were still around and parts were easier to come by.

            Cool videos, love the bow spray. 35 sounds pretty good for an in-line 6 in that size boat.

            related thought to him blowing by you: did v8’s ever come in 17 or 19’s?

              Plenty of 19’s had v8’s. Most were the 898 Mercruiser 305 Chev or 888 Merc which had 302 Ford. There were also a lot of 305 chev/Volvo 280’s out there. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a v8 in a standard 17 but they made a couple of the 5.5m (Donzi) style with 302 v8’s. But fuel was getting expensive and economy was a big deal so many opted for the 4cyl Volvo/Merc packages you commonly see.

                  I think that was coming around Samish Island.

                    Great shot of Aaron's trimmed out 21. Also Bubba-G shows the value of a flared bow.
                    The cruise liner QE2 moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel that it burns.
