Graham, I moderated your 1st 2 posts for a reason. I don't appreciate you coming straight back in and posting pretty much the same thing again.

Coooookeeeeeeeeee


I am unfortunately *not* able to attend Miami, as I have to attend Madrid.

I would prefer a smallblock so it can fit in the V24. I would prefer naturally aspirated, and kicking out about 700 HP. Not too much to ask.

( and no - I am not going to race in the V24 race with it, this is a conversion for some winter 'fun' with the boat... )


Although 700 Hp would be a load of fun in the brass monkey next year....

Here you go - scroll down the page - 720hp
But they'll be lumpy as hell, and whether they'd hold togther in a boat for a decent life.....

Just did a deal yesterday which will prevent me from going as well, going to be a bit busy over the next few weeks I'm afraid!

I would suggest joining Offshore Only and asking the question over there - there are a number of people that will be able to supply the sort of engine you are looking for, although supercharged might be the way to go - is there any reason you want to go naturally aspirated?

If you want I can ask for you?

Gordon Mcmath at Drivers (he drives the crane) knows an engine builder who visits reguarly over here - ask him as well (be prepared for a long discussion! )

Express built a bunch of engines for us that went into the Velocities, the ProVee boat and the Nor-Tech. They also built two engines for Neil Holmes for his ProVee.

Really good people to work with and to know.

Ask for Bruce Baker or John Kaeserman.

Bruce! That's the fella! Met him in Miami last year at the show, then I was up at Drivers and I bumped into him there as well - nice guy!
