    I was just out checking something on the Warlock when I remembered that the sides were supposed to be made with divinycell. Wow! I pounded all the way down the sides of the boat and it sounds like a typical boat where you would only pound at a bulkhead - in fact it was not very noticeable where the bulkheads actually were. It should be a very quiet riding boat except for the engine in it. It really is a well built boat. Bill

    Here is an interesting post on Divinycell use .............

    Divinycell is a closed cell core material that comes in a wide range of densities. It ranges from 38 kg/cub. m. to 250 kg/cub.m. The test I witnessed was performed on 38 kg/cub.m. which is the weakest and least expensive. When it absorbs the resin it becomes more dense and increases it's strength to density ratio while retaining it's dimensional stability and residual strength. All of these specs are way higher than that of end grain balsa and are the highest in it's class of composite core materials. It's ductile qualities are also excellent for sandwich core construction as well as other applications where they are subject to prolonged impact or slamming loads. It absorbs energy when deflected without structural failure. In the event of failure, due to it's similar properties with the glass and mat v/s dis-similar with the balsa creating a stronger bond, delamination would occur over a much smaller area than with balsa.

    Divinycell also has along with superior adhesion properties, better peel strength, higher chemical and thermal resistance as well as much better resistance to water absorption when compared to balsa and in turn will not rot which is why most people are having cores replaced to begin with.

    Balsa is a lot better than a lot of products out there but no where near the best. There are a lot of great composite products out there such as Lantar coremat, spheretex and spherecore, airex, corecell and the list goes on, but divinycell is hard to beat.
    Do it the proper way with divinycell and don't worry about rot or delamination again!

    location

    Nice pic. Location is the "Sand Bar" Lake Havasu / River. "Tide" is high. Greg - I was not aware you were running a bot to pick up obscure boat pics. Cool.

    Speaking of Havasu this ad gives some indication to when the old style 28 that Bill has, stopped being made. This 1996 is actually from Ultimate Warlock, the next in the ownership line after Tom Stolarz and Team Warlock. These Euro's were even more rare and were offered in 24 and 28 and it looks like it has the original Bravo 3 drive as well. Rumor has it that it was a 25 degree deadrise hull. That would mean that the 24 degree Team Warlock 23, 26 and 28 "World Class Offshore" models ran from 1987 to 1995. A good run indeed...........

Mint conditon inside and out. Originally from Lake Havasu we brought it up here 2 years ago. Sadly due to the scamming activity on CL please phone with any questions. Thanks Bill (2o8) 8one8 -3134

    Greg,
    Thanks for the additional information. It would be fun to see my older one beside one of these newer ones for comparisons. The one you show would include the integrated swim platform in the length. Bill

    Greg, you always bring up the boats I love. I looked hard for a Euro before my 22, but couldn't find one. I LOVE those boats! That pic doesn't do the boat justice. They look killer sitting in the water
    Why is faster never fast enough.

    yeller, I have NEVER seen an Ultimate Warlock 28 Euro for sale so this is one rare piece. Here is a picture of a 24 in the water which would give an idea of how cool the 28 would look. I know where there is a 24 Euro which to your point is hard to find. This one has a 500 in it to boot.

    Bill, there was a time when Ultimate boats did some of the rigging for Tom Stolarz and Team Warlock. When the transition occured I guess it was logical that Ultimate buy the company/molds and create Ultimate Warlock Powerboats in the mid 1990's or 1996 to be exact based on the boat for sale. With a different company at the helm I can't say if the layup schedule was as good as your Team Warlock 28.

    Here is the evolution of Bill's 28 to what would become the Warlock 29 step hull.

    "Team Warlock" - 1987 through probably 1994-95. Tom Stolarz era
    "Ultimate Warlock" - December 1995 through 1999
    "Warlock" around 2000. The for sale ad is wrong and it is actually an Ultimate Warlock. This is when the hull changed to a pad bottom under Carter Reed.

    Up for sale is a 1997 Warlock with a stepped hull, completely remodeled in 2004, with alarm, everything on this boat is custom including an Outerlimits interior. It has a fully built JC performance engine, Chevy bigblock 568ci, with supercharger, canfield heads, and dry sump oil pump, too many mods to list. Recently serviced. 850 hp motor with less than 200 hours. It also has a bravo XR drive with less than 10 hours, bought new not rebuilt. It is still under warranty. Huge k planes,The drive has a bravo 34" pitch worked prop. This is a 100 mph boat, gps verified (serious inquires only no joy rides). This boat is in showroom condition and has always been kept in dry storage. Trailer has a new axle just put on and all four tires are new, trailer is included. 42,000 obo Alex 786-282-0862
    Propulsion:
    gas sterndrive ( Engine: Single 850 hp 568 chevy with 178 hours. )

    I've been doing a little work to the 28' Warlock. The 6000RPM VDO tachometer was a little faded on the face so I replaced it with a 7000RPM VDO tach that I had custom built about 4 years ago with a redline indicator dial and it matches perfectly. I replaced one of the spring engine cover supports with a perfect one that I had in stock since one of them was bent. I replaced the two black grab handles and vents on the transom that were badly faded with good ones from Eddie Marine that I had in stock. I am about to Imron the Bennett ST-16 trim tabs that had some black paint chipping off. There was a 1" hole in the transom where someone apparently had a light that illuminated the outdrive so I filled it with thickened gelcoat resin and color matched it. I bought a new boat cover that was a little too short so I had my upholsterer add enough material so it would cover the entire boat including the swim platform. I am doing a few minor wiring changes after studying the wiring. As soon as I change out the drive fluid with my favorite Dyson Syngear fluid, I will be ready to run the boat for the first time. Onwards, Bill

    Addendum: The gear fluid looked like new so I will run it for a while. I also installed a billet aluminum flame arrestor for the Holley Dominator that I had in stock from the 632 that I sold - the Eddie Marine ss flame arrestor was in good shape, but the top was bent down from the bolt pulling too much.

    Bill, i believe the stern light is soppose to be their on certain legnth boats according to the uscg.

    -------------------------------------------

    Mike,
    The hole I filled was below the swim platform and has a plastic cover on the outside of the transom that reads Starlight or something like that. It was definitely not a stern light. The Warlock has a 360 degree pole light that plugs into the standard type fitting on the port stern deck. I only filled the hole from the inside of the transom to make sure no water ever got into the transom wood which seems to be perfect. Bill

    Fishermanjm glad you enjoy them!

    Bill it sounds like you have taken care of the few nitpic items that needed attention. Looking forward to seeing your "sea trial" report. I have been told that the boats ride pretty flat, almost jumping on plane right away without rollover so I'll be curious to get your comments versus the Martini. Onward........

    Greg,
    You will be the first to know as to how the Warlock performs. Hopefully, I will include some video footage of the first outing that I look forward to. Bill
