Recently bought a 79 24 excalibur with a stock 350 and volvo 280 w/ trim. Boat was a dog and ran out at 40mph. Drive was mounted really low. I am currently putting a new transom and engine bedders. I am going with a bravo 1 with a high x dimension. Just up in the air about a 383 natural, 383 with a blower, or 454. Any input would be appreciated.
