    Dan...........you need to talk to Sea Ray Jim who just joined our forum. He has a megahorsepower motor in a 240 SunDeck that pushes it along at around 65MPH! :eek:

    Sea Ray hulls are not designed for top speed. They know their market and it dictates a stable, dry, comfortable and safe ride at moderate cruising speeds. If you want go-fast speeds, buy the right hull to start with, then dump the money in. It will cost you a ton of money to keep blower motors running on a boat and probably that much again to keep drives behind them.

    why supercharge?

    Dan , what Boat do you ahve and Why do you need to Supercharge your motors? Motors in marine application's do not get a chance to rest, there fore, not good for Supercharging at all nor turbo's either.....
