You're talking Merc 525's right? Is there a big variance from one to the next? Take it for what it's worth, but I've heard that most Merc 525's are under-rated, putting out anywhere from 535 to 545 pshp. I remember JC Perf saying this.

He means pick the right "525's" to put in. As in, "Of course those are 525's, it says it right on the top".

The new baja poker run boat claims 92mph with 525's. thats pretty impressive without stagger and no steps.

Beachbob, I think you would lose alot of cockpit space on the 36 pantera w/ staggered motors. They build a great boat, but definitely not the fastest.
