It's getting a bit expensive now, yes...

I've lost track of the cost now.

I found it best to wait a couple of years before totaling up the cost
Still found it a bit of a shocker

To be fair though, your boat looks like it was bloody expensive

any scratches in your screen,

Short update-spent the last 2 days cleaning stuff still. Whatever was spilled inside the seats/console is very tenacious. It's taken sealant remover to get most of it up, which means doing 3 to 4 inches at a time and cleaning out the diamond pattern in the deck one line at a time with the edge of a scraper.

Fitted a new WEMA fuel sender-the magnet/float type rather than the type with an arm. I've put one in that only goes to about 90% of the tank depth so I've got a safety margin.

Just picked up some new hatch seal material from Tymseals
I got some white soft silicone sheet as well for gaskets round the instruments.

I've put a 21" Lazer II on there as the original prop was obviously underpropped.

RIB International 02/03/2006 article : BIG GUNS IN FOUR-WAY SHOOT OUT

(Ive a copy & can email if you want it..)

Anyways it was test for the then current 250hp offerings from Evinrude, Yamaha, Mercury and Suzuki. All rigged on the back of Ballistic 7.8mtr provided by JBT.

Article goes into a lot of detail, but in summary they recorded the following WOT performance figures with each outboard.

Yamaha F 250 = 47.35kts
Mercury Verado 250 = 45.9kts
Suzuki DF 250 = 45.75kts
Evinrude E-Tec 250 = 45kts

0-40kts
Yamaha = 11.71sec
Mercury = 13.13sec
Evinrude = 14.71sec
Suzuki = 17.9sec

I know all different outboards to yours, but maybe a useful bench-mark of performance.

Ive done in excess of 200hrs in a Ballistic 7.8mtr pushing the best part of 350hp (not an outboard) and that in the flat runs all day long at WOP 55kts/56kts on the gps.

I like the hulls very much, although hard ridding they can be fast boats. Interesting that you say the seat base fell apart in your hands, same for the anchor locker seat base on this hull after less than two years!
