Default Getting ready to restore

just started restoring hull #19 and curious what speed I can expect out of a 5.7 with between 260 and 300 hp. I'm converting from a trs to a bravo drive. The boat will be fairly light as it will have no cabin interior just bare stringers. I'm also wondering if anyone has the ideal x dimension for this setup. Thanks guys.

The other question I have is cutting the cockpit floor out for fuel tank access anyone know if it's bonded to the stringers or not?

Floor is not bonded to the stringers and if you haven't cut it yet, its easiest to cut around the perimeter of the floor. There is a thread about fuel tank replacement somewhere in this forum. A small block with 300ish hp and a bravo will get you around 60 mph I would imagine. I have hull #23 with a TRS and a 454 truck engine that runs about that.
