Up for sale is my Bahner, its been a great boat for me, very reliable, never let me down... but now with kids it isn't a very family friendly boat,(at least thats what the wife says...). Boat seats 4.
Anyways, I've owned it for 2+years, I'm the 3rd owner, previous owner had it for 12+years. The boat sat 3 years before I bought it. It's a pretty fast boat for what it is, I've never GPS'd it, really didnt have a reason to, it's fast enough for me, but the previous owner said it went 82mph down river.
It's powered by a 468 bbc, roller motor, all machine work done by Blair's Speed Shop, was said to have about 600hp, I am not sure of all the internals since I did not build the motor but I know all top quality parts were used. I'm not sure of the copmression ratio but it has an average of about 210lbs of cylinder pressure each cylinder. I run 110 octane but I'm sure you could get away with 110/91 mix. motor and pump were built and installed about 6 years ago, not sure of the impeller, at WOT, boat tachs about 5200rpm.
The hull shows its age in spots, the deck could use a color sanding, and the stock tow got pulled out of the hull,(not done by me, see pic). The interior is in great shape, it was done around the same time the motor and were rebuilt.
Has a very nice matching bimini top and cover. I always take great care of my boat, always keep it clean and give it proper maintanance.
I just had the boat out last weekend (7-21-12) and it ran perfect, sure hate to see it go, but hope it goes to a good home.
Here's a list of things the boat has...

Forged crank
