    Bravo to Arneson Conversion?

    Has anyone done this? I would love to read about this.....anyone know a web address for arneson? anybody have 30+ v's with arnesons?

    I've dreamed about it on several occasions! It actually isn't that expensive when you compare apples to apples. Your entire gimbal assy is replaced along with your drive and you have external steering.

    spoke to rick @ arneson $28,500 for total kit (both) I could sell off full Marine Machine Steering new xr's and all transom hardware. I figure I could get 12-15k for that so for 15k out of pocket i could go arnesons it worth it? thats about 4-5 broken bravos doesnt seem like that much when you look at it that way......Do you guys think I am accurate in my value on my equipment? Goodfella?

    Talk to me this weekend about it if you make it to the lake. I'm looking at swapping out the Kaamas for ASD6s on the Excalibur cat that's for sale.

    I too have kinda pondered the idea.

    Do you need to move the engine and mounts and re-drill in the stringers? Do you need a tranny?

    How would the switch from Bravos, which sit relatively deep in the water, to Arnesons (surface piercing) affect the handling of a given boat?

    I seem to remember there being some talk of issues with the TS Top Guns with surface drives and bigger power? I'm just thinking it could be a nasty surprise to bolt up the new $30K drives and find out the boat gets all squirrelly...
