Once you bolt those into it, it's game over. All it takes is one time blowing past a 35 Fountain struggling to keep up in 3 footers and you'll be hooked on your little big boat. That and no monthly payment

Are those 575's? They look sweet. All they need is a set of big oval blue-anodized arrestors on them. Get 'em engraved "Apache Brave".

Be aware, some of the earlier Gil/Merc manifolds had thinness issues. If they were going to have a problem, most likely they would have by now. have them pressure tested and clean them out & look inside. You can use one of those fiber-optic borescopes and look in thru the water inlets- pull a freeze plug or two if you need to.

I was surprised where the Ebay auction ended up.

Boat is sold to a board member!!! He is a great guy and will finish the boat the way it should be done. Thanks to Chris Sunkin for helping out in the sale, Chris is a great guy and I thank him for helping me!!

Congrats to both parties on the sale.
At least you took a portion of my advice, and sold it to someone that is gonna have the desire to finish her up right. I got a little of the inside scoop, and know where she's going.
That boat will fit right in for the water she'll be on.
I look forward to seeing her in person myself.
I know I rode ya hard about getting her done, and I still think you'll be kicking yourself in the azz, but you sold to a good guy that will certainly appreciate what he got.

Chris - are you sidelining as a broker now too?? or did you just not have enough space to drag another project home for yourself??

Chris helped me out to find me a board member ( Fundrazor) to buy my boat, and he will get it finished. I will now be on to my next boat?

Chris, I usually refer to myself as te "jerk"of many trades. Take that for what it is.
Don't worry Bill, I have confidence John will make you proud of all the work you've already put in her.
Yeah, and if time allows, I may be the newest "hauler" on the board.
Only this one doesn't end up in the chipper

He sidelines in a lot of things, but he looks out for his friends full time.

Thanks Dave. I can't wait to see that bad boy in these parts either.
If I had a 3/4 ton truck with a 10,000lb cap I would be eastbound right now. My 1/2 ton won't get it.
I am going to shop for a suitible tow vehicle over the winter (more fun) Have a couple friends who are willing to help get her home, just have to get the timing right.
