Were Lithium batteries considered?

130lbs x6. 780lbs of just battery...wowza


If the boat owner is serious about his audio equipment and he must be I would assume he is using AGM batteries that are heavier than a standard lead acid (160#-ish per battery) If you add up the engines, pumps and batteries of this boat it weighs more than two cummins and two 274s.

Yeah that boat ran awesome at 63 mph but this customer is not looking for that kind of speed and this weight is centered in the bottom of the boat. All the twin 8LV boats I've built will easily haul 25-30 people with ease. I've hauled 14 big guys up Granite in a 29 with only a 7'6" bottom and only 2/3 throttle. Those twin 241's work really well with that engine combo.

These batteries are interesting.

The batteries are nothing compared to the amount of large speakers and amps going in especially since the batteries are mounted low in the center of the boat. Keep in mind we've built basically the same boat for Rock'in Thunder Jet boat tours that USCG certified at 24 passenger plus 2 crew and that certification is at 180 lbs per person. So doing the math that's 4680 lbs. Those twin 8LV's pushed that boat loaded at over 50 mph. 8' bottom and twin 8LV and twin 241's push tons of weight. I bet you won't hear the engines over all those speakers. Hell you might not hear anything at all after a couple years. LOL
