    I've heard of Success Craft but can't say I've ever seen one up close. Yours is definitely a nice looking boat and with a 454 there would certainly be no lack of grunt! Any pics of the engine?

    thanks sorry only just saw this reply jsut now! i actually saw another success craft, just a slightly smaller one up the river yesterday! first one ive seen other than mine the big block definately has loads of grunt, will almost take off and come out of the water full throttle from standstill. i have a photo of it somewhere with all the fins underneath out of the water.
    heres the engine anyways. going to get a bit of a rebuild after summer, and going to polish up the manifolds and paint the rocker covers.

    Ron Brauer started making Successcraft ski boats in Toowoomba Qld about 20 years ago................over this time I'd guess that the family business would have produced
    several hundred units that were well received in the local market..........that's probably why there aren't too many in your part of Oz.
    ..........still making them as far as I know............

    Cheers Cactus

    Hi there guys.
    I'm looking at a success craft pro 2000 with a big block chev as a boat for slalom skiing. The boat is out of town and I haven't been to see if yet. I was wondering if you could describe what the hull/wake is like for skiing behind?

    I understand the boat is meant to be a bit of a crossover ski/wake boarding boat and the shop selling it said some skiers looked at it and thought the wake was a bit big? Are there things that effect the wake such as prop choice?

    Cheers,

    Biggest thing affecting wake is the weight of the lump of cast iron at the stern. My 20' runabout runs a V6 chev and even it sits pretty low and throws a pretty big wake. The less hull in the water at operating speed, the less wake.
