The dropboxes are setup for quickchange ratios. I have two different ones but will have to check on the exact ratios. 1.5 to 1 would not be a problem.

Unless he changed his drives, the Sorcerer is running Arneson 8's.

Weismann used to have another drive which reached further behind the boat like the Arneson. It was still a Z drive though. It's my understanding that drive did not have reverse rotation capability.

Can you tell me how old they are? Are they swept back skegs? Do they have the older style flat or the 6a type top? Thank you

The Sorcerer has run `181 mph and that was at 61 percent. I have heard those motors and they are way naughty. Predator has 1400 hp twin whipple motors in her. Hunter

By far the nastiest sounding motor I've ever heard in a boat.
