    At 850HP I'd be interested in checking out the stringer grid and mounts for the motor.

    Agree. There is an interesting speed trend developing with these 24 degree Ultimate Warlock World Class 29 hulls that are for sale. Late 1996 would've been the first year for this hull.

    Stock 502MPI spinning a Bravo One 26" making 415 hp................ 67 MPH..........$29,000
    Stock 500 EFI spinning a labbed Bravo One 28" making 500 hp ......80 MPH..........$32,500
    Blower 502 making 650 hp .................................................. ......92 MPH..........$46,980..........Sold 4-1-13
    Blower 568 spinning a Bravo One 34" making 850 hp.....................100 MPH.........$42,000

    Interesting when you consider smidgen too's comment on how hard they were to beat on the race course.

    That is an interesting roll-up of speed vs. HP. Seems plausible for an efficient 29' deep-v.

    I guess the outlier is the boat in OKC with the blower shop 525 @ 750hp running 84? Maybe he's toting a REALLY big cooler? That or a little high on his hp estimate, which seems more probable.

    Either way, these are awesome boats. Seem to be priced realistically as well. They're definitely on my radar for when mama and I are ready to graduate from the bowrider to a go fast.

    Looks like the 2003 Warlock 29 just dropped his price from $45k to $37k. That is a hefty reduction. Below is a brochure from late 1997. The boys liked to race 'em I guess.

    I was wondering about the speeds of these Warlock 29's as well. The pad on the 29 is a bit different than the 25 and 27 I guess because the 1996 29 was the first model they built, raced, and experimented with. Pad looks to be almost flat and maybe 8" wide. 73mph with a 496HO is pretty sweet.

    Pretty wild looking pad & hull layout. Obviously it works pretty darn well....

    Interesting to see that close up of the bottom. I suppose that technically it's a deep V, but between the pad and those huge (can you call them strakes?), it seems like a good bit of it is very flat back there, at least near the transom. Explains some of the speed data. I bet the effective deadrise is more like 11 degrees at high speed when it's mostly up out of the water.

    I gotta get a good picture of the hull on my lowly bowrider. It's a 21deg deep vee between the strakes, with a 8 inch wide shallow vee pad extending from the step to the transom. I think it's pretty sexy for a floating party barge - definitely not a traditional runabout hull.

    She doesn't have enough beans to get all the way up on the pad yet, but you guys better stand by for when I get this sucker running and propped right....

    Other guys with more experience on the site would know better but I believe that Delta Pad's and Steps were becoming very popular back in 1996. When conditions are snotty you benefit from the 24 degree deadrise because the hull is settled when running slower. If conditions allow, "kaboom" the hull step aerates and then pops up on that pad. It gives me 10mph extra on my 16 Classic, so I guess that same principle gave the Warlock's a pretty major speed advantage over other 29's back in the day. The pad shown below on a 29 is almost flat.

    The pad design certainly helps speed as does the serpentine step amidship. Probably very progressive for its day. Picture of step below.....

    Correct, and gives a pretty cool look at what a step does to wetted surface I guess. Although once you are flying the hull is balanced on the pad for the most part. At least that is how mine works.

    How is a "serpentine step" different from a regular one?

    Hell if I know, although it clearly dominated the race course and was 10mph faster than like powered V hulls back in the late 90's. Now I'm curious and will find out lol. Here is a good arial photo of a 29 Warlock mid-cabin open bow. Very useful pleasure layout.
