Let's take a hypothetical early-90's Top Gun. How much to replace the tired motors and TRS's with a pair of 500 horse motors/Bravos- with exhaust? 40 grand? More?

That's alot to dump into a 15 year old boat.

I believe people sell when the power is tired and they find out what it cost to repower.........could be wrong....
