old tech third party i'm afraid! It's GM V8 6.5 like mine but blown instead of turbo, this is the first of the 410hp versions, a bit of a prototype, the company makes them as standard to 300hp with a smaller blower, but this is a bit special, revs higher (4400) which helps a lot in all sorts of ways!

I'm puting a mannerfelt B28 together for a pal, it's going in that, driving through a modified (IMCO) bravo 1, with diesel consumption its pretty (assuming everything is as it should be) relative so, my 325's burn at WOT 15 imp galls/hour each so i'm expecting the 410 to use around about 20.. give or take

that's the fella, if you look at www.ocke.com and look up B28 then find the one with the canopy, thats the one, if it all goes as it should it will be good for close to 80 ( try to stay awake) not bad for a single diesel!

shouldn't think so for a minute, i'm still at the glassing structures and messy stage with all the rigging and stuff yet to come, but should be on the water a little later in the year, gonna be based at southampton with my boat so I'm sure you'll notice it around!

Getting a bit Dozee,

Its an interesting bit of kit, I was at a Tractor pull a few weeks ago and the speed of the diesl Tractors was orsome but,Please correct me if Im wrong,I was also at the power worlds in Blackpool and it was blowing a 5 maybe, I know the area well as its my home port.The lune deep always gets a bit choppy when there is wind over tide,and if my memory serves me right the power boys with the Bat boats didnt come out to play as it was to ruff for them but the ribs did?.

I may of got this wrong as I was a spectator at the time but thats what it looked like to me.?

Correct me if i have made an awfull Gaff

I can't comment I wasn't there, however, the bat boats are awesome in a head sea but do have a bit of a tendency to leave your head behind in a big following (they stuff very easilly) so you could well be right (self preservation) they have very little forefoot which aint too good for recovery
