    Chris,

    Your boat is really sharp! Can you comment on your cruise and WOT speeds (and corresponding RPM's) with the 8.1L gasser. I saw on YachtWorld your cruise/WOT listed at 30/40mph, respectively. I'm curious if that's accurate as I would really like to go the straight inboard diesel route but am a little dissapointed at the low 20's cruise. If you're #'s are accurate, it creates an interesting trade-off to consider.

    Thanks,

    Josh

      WOT/Cruise Numbers

      Josh,
      Thank you for the compliment. Carolina Classics have very unique lines. Carolina Classic advertises the WOT throttle and cruise numbers at 40/30mph. I cruise the boat at 28-30mph which is 3400-3600 rpms depending on sea conditions. The motor is rated for turning up to 4400rpms. I have reached 38mph with the boat loaded w/ gear, two people and half tanks. I am running the boat in fresh water, which makes the boat a little slower. The salt water allows the boat to be slightly more bouyant which is where the advertised 40mph comes from. Please let me know if I can answer any additional questions.

        Chris,

        Thank you for posting that information, it's very helpful. I didn't expect those speeds were attainable w/o the jackshaft/outdrive setup, but clearly I was wrong. Best of luck with your sale...there are VERY few late model straight inboards on the market right now.

        Regards,

        Josh

          Thank you. I do hope to sell the boat quickly. I don't expect to use the boat much in the next couple of years which will make it difficult to justify the cost of ownership. My wife and I have our first child on the way. I recently became a salesperson for the dealership that I purchased the boat from in 2006. I believe Carolina Classic to be one of the best boat values on the market today. Touring the plant where they are constructed and now working in the business only solidifies that belief. Good luck with locating the right boat. I am capable of delivering this one should that be of value to you. Please let me know if you have any further interest in a gas inboard. I would recommed the bow thruster option should you decide on the straight inboard. It is always nice to know it's there in case you need it during less than favorable docking conditions!

          Thanks,

          Chris
