It's not as rare as everyone is led to believe. Most major firearms stores will have some on the shelf. It's one of the most popular hunting rounds across the Atlantic. ...

re: Tikka T3 Liquidation Sale - DownshiftAndFloorIt
Get some privi partizan ammo. I had a box of the 120gr hollow points because they were on the shelf at cabelas and they shoot incredible well and they're cheap. Same for the 140's...

re: Hydrasports making a 65' center console - DownshiftAndFloorIt
I agree about the trailering part. Storing a sportfisher is a huge expense and you will have the same expenses with this beast. Scuba Bottom cleanings, drydocking for bottom painting, having to run it somewhere far away for hurricanes, having a slip or two leased, etc. ...

re: Hydrasports making a 65' center console - DownshiftAndFloorIt
Inboards get the weight down and forward which is always good. Designing a hull for diesel inboards requires substantially more planning. There's a minimum of 3 hull penetrations at or below the waterline (SW intake, propshaft, exhaust), much more piping, more electrical, stiffer beds, etc. Outb...

re: Hydrasports making a 65' center console - DownshiftAndFloorIt
They definitely have some unique design challenges that don't apply to outboards. They're definitely more efficient and durable. 10k hours is getting all the way broken in for a marine diesel and marine gear. Diesel is safer to store than gasoline. You don't have to fish over/around outboards wi...

re: Hydrasports making a 65' center console - DownshiftAndFloorIt
Diesels is what I do. You could fit 1100hp under the floor of a 40' CC but it'd be tight. It'd cost more than outboards and lose speed. Most guys aren't going to pay more for less speed in a market where dicks are measured in MPH. EPA regs are stiff but under 800ish hp diesels don't have to ...

re: Hydrasports making a 65' center console - DownshiftAndFloorIt
Yea, frick that. Diesels are HUGE and expensive and the power density is shite compared to suped outboards, but they last forever and they're not stacked across the transom where you're wanting to fish from. If you've got the room for them they're what you want. ...

re: Hydrasports making a 65' center console - DownshiftAndFloorIt
You could probably cram about 1800hp down there in diesels without too much re-design and not loose a whole shitload of speed. You'd gain range and longevity. I personally wouldn't want a half million dollars of gas sucking blow up prone outboards hanging off the back of my 2mil boat, but I'm in...

re: Hydrasports making a 65' center console - DownshiftAndFloorIt
So 3135hp? Couldn't do it with diesels in that boat. Couldn't even get close. Not sure how much room you have under the floor but you'd have to stuff twin C32's under there to get past 3000hp, and they'd have to be tier 4 with aftertreatment and urea. Not even worth talking about. You could M...
