I am very pleased with the Dart tall decks that Callies Crank shop built. I am exceptionally pleased with the Skater built by Douglas Marine. The Arnesons and Arneson as a company builds in my opinion the best high performance drive for a high performance application today provided the hull is designed properly. I am also very pleased with the Bam marine transmissions. You can guess why I do not sit here and discuss what top speeds this boat runs. The motors can spin 6200 no problem slightly down sizing props. Currently the boat spins 16.5 x 34s 5 blades.
My boating season ended with about $7000 in fuel this summer. The last run was down to ac last weekend and we will run around the bay this weekend. I would rig another boat with out hesitation. I called and talked to a few guys about going to mechanical rollers and they told me the motor packages are so reliable and run so strong it would be a waste of time.
So do you think I should pull the motors? They have about 100 hrs. with 190lbs of compression across the board. Also the passenger side was never rigged because it is a pleasure boat and I was uncertain whether or not to do a dual helm. The passenger side will be rigged now. I both with GPS speedos and GPS with dual tachs.
This is another funny post by you. How many years do you think you can drag this out?
