    I am committed to my Caribbean project but just out of curiosity someone contacted me with this boat for not a lot of cash minus the two opti's, its a 32 foot scarab would make a awesome fast offshore power boat

    Only 450hp on the back of a 30' Scarab? Yanks would say it was underpowered they would actually call that a cuddy, believe it or not, due to the enclosure up the front. if you want to see some real go fast boats and history, watch this Youtube documentary. Made for television, so its' full length, deals with Reggie Fountain of Fountain boats. Now HE made a monohull go fast. First racing, then moved into fishing and cruising hulls.

    I don't know? I have plenty of data, so i just watch. it goes for over an hour. But youtube is generally pretty low quality, so it wouldn't be anything like a regular movie. It gets better, IMO, when you get past all the tunnel hull lake racing, and get into the ocean racing with monos.

    If I was looking at a boat in that size, I want diesels, a cabin, beds, TV and kitchen, if I want wind and rain, I'll buy a Quintrex.

    Exactly. In fact, anything over $100k must be able to at least sleep 2 in comfort, for me. But at least you can trailer it, unlike anything with diesels and a full fitout. Don't the yanks love their big CC's? Noel knows what I am talking about, being an inmate on THT. I just laugh when I see them coming back in , in a thunderstorm, in a half-million dollar boat getting soaked. Racing back to the ramp trying to beat the weather. A mate sent me a link to an Edencraft a while back, he's thinking of upgrading from an old 6m platey to a glass hull--I've spoilt him on the Reefrunner . And I pointed out to him that you won't be doing the overnight and extended trips away that I do away in that thing. And only getting a ragtop for that kind of money? Great fast boat, but totally lacking in any form of accommodation. Divers' boats--get out there fast, doesn't matter if you get wet, get in the water, do your dive, get home fast.

    The owner said it was just under 4T from memory

    A small 3 seater 5T truck could tow something like that i would think? A old land rover is rated to 3.75T or 4T that bost was over in perth so a mission to get here

    Here u go old v8 land rover discovery can tow 3.5T https://www.redbook.com.au/cars/deta...POT-ITM-244808
