    Womack old Virage, Octane, and Pro 785

    Not too sure about that Womack Virage. 200 HP and 90+ MPH?

    Well, the picture looks familiar... I took it.

    I think Billy told me it was mid70's but was setup more for racing. IF this is the same boat, it's MSD, one-off pipes, big carbs, etc... built by Baxter basically.

    BUT, since that picture was when BILLY owned the boat, I'd be very wary of it.

    Geezzzz,We just had a guy on here a few months ago that said he owed it and had it for sale. I think Pirate has two of Billy's Virages.

    I'm sure he had more than 1, but here's what must have been his "slow" one. The way people throw speed numbers out there amazes me.

    Is that the article from PWI? I remember reading it a few years back.

    That's what I was thinking...

    Amazing how the article says 190 HP at 66.03 MPH and the seller says 200 HP at 90+ MPH.

    Pretty amazing how another 10 HP can add 24 MPH.

    If it's one of Womacks old watercraft I can guarantee you it's nothing like it originally was when he had it.
