Would you use it again if you put a new floor in it? Or do you mean convert it back to normal seating arrangment and then sell it?

I have it up for sale so I ca be open to new ideas. I have a thought about a ProVee boat.

I want to sort the Bladerunner before I sell it, so it reliably tops 80mph. Once I have done this, I can sell it on knowing that the person buying it would get a good deal. - I dont want to be defeated by the boat not being the best the boat can be. At the same time, it is not what I thought I wanted. I dont like to open air, I dont like the breeze in my hair and the splash of water etc.

I want a canopy styled boat that can do 100+ - a genuine 100+

there was a 4ltr or 6ltr batboat b28 for sale(last week but cant find it now), its open but maybe you could get pascoe to wack a canopy on it off a v24, or cut into for a leisure layout... who made the race b28 anyway. depends if u want someting off the shelf or if ur like me and always see potential ideas and projects (that are usually out my league) in everything

Why dont you get Gav to knock you up a Canopy? Who can make one a piece of piss. I am sure if you dropped the promax's off and went for race engines then you could easy get 100mph+

Doubt it!!!

How much power are race motors going to gain you unless you go for stupid 2.5 11000RPM 400hp race gas 10 hour (probably less) motors.

Even then thats only a 200hp gain and probably less torque! Is that really going to gain 20mph on a big heavy boat like a blade.

as JBD said tuned up race 2.5's produce 400hp each but 800hp prob aint enought to push the blade to a ton
