What is the power you are planning on using in this boat? Diesel or Gas?

Contact www.arneson-industries.com and see which drive will be appropriate with your engine power and email them off their site.

This should speed up the process of getting the correct sized drives.

that is a big heavy boat, low speed handling is gonna be pretty crappy on it with surface drives. ESPECIALLY in reverse.
