Very cool project but I suspect that $1275 you spent so far will be a small drop in the bucket!

Good luck none the less!!

Yessss!!!!! I've been eyeing one of these for my next project down the road. So much good history with that hull. I will be following closely!
What is the actual beam on that hull? Everywhere I read it's different info

Cool looking hull. Formula 233 offspring?

I'd make a walkaround express with that amount of beam.

Twin Merc 150 4S for power?

Walt Walters designed both the Formula 233 and later the Donzi 28. The Cary 28 hull was built from the mold of the Donzi 28 008 race hull.
I'm gonna start with twin 200hp 2.5L merc two strokes and then make decisions on power after running the hull. Motors are on a stand in my garage.

There is a big flat transom bump out. 25" shaft motors are the perfect height for mounting on 28" center.

There are a few posts that give me hope for less power using twin outboards. I don't want to feed the 440 chryslers (330hp each) with a 168 gallon tank. Might be fun once or twice. 168 gallon fuel tank was made in 2008 and It looks brand new. Twin 225 ox66's Yamaha with 19pitch props cruise 32knots @ 4000rpm. That boat had a bracket, tower, and 310gallons. I'm hoping that shedding weight and less aerodynamic structures will allow for smaller power options. My federal fishing permit limits hp to 385. Https://www.thehulltruth.com/boats-sale-wanted/833845-28-blackfin-fast-fisherman-outboard-fs.html?833845=#post10147412



I figured out how to dial in a single 150 for the 23 seacraft weighing in at 4400lbs. Twin merc 150 3.0l four strokes on this hull est. 6800lbs rigged seems possible.

similar size and weight with twin 150's seems possible even if I had to drop down to 15p props.

Those are fine running speeds and top end with the 150's on the Sailfish. Guessing your hull won't be quite as slippery with the deeper V? Brad at Onslow Bay, almost a decade ago, was rigging their boats with 175 Suzuki's. He was very confident it would run fine with a load. Still kicking myself for not buying one!
