With 75k worth of aluminum Donovan dry sump aspirated 540 cubic" motors from my engine builder, hook to bravo style drives, rigged on a trailer was about 380K. Does this sound right on price?
Greg, call me 805-340-8847. I want to ask you a question about that.....

I ran a foot throttle in a lot of rough water in a twin outboard 22' Talon. No problems, it worked excellent, plus both hands are on the wheel. The foot rest on the left had the nitrous oxide button...

the in-control units are nice....

i would think the dead pedal would be a must to keep your balance...

We used the in-control unit. Your foot does not fly around in the thing.

Maybe that's down to the layout of the cockpit? There is a dead foot and the foot throttle and the seats are set at the right angle.
