The Diesel Performance Research offshore boat project has been continually moving forward over the last year. The engine development is solid and the bugs are worked out on the gearbox and transmission. The 32 inch pitch props seem to be the limiting factor on top speed at 125, so 34 inch props are on order to reach the speed goals at 135mph plus. Spring testing will continue in Florida in Febuary as Lake Michigan is no longer fun to test on this year. More to come in 2008.

The boat uses ZF Surface Drives and the drives are overdriven by 22.5%. The engines would also be comparable with #6 drives with a higher gear installed instead of the popular 1.5 to 1.
