What is the cost for a set of the Arnesons? That plays in as well. How is handling and driveability affected?

Arnesons are expensive to convert--23-25K per side I believe. Yes it's true they most likely will never break, but you can also buy and repair alot of XR drives for 40 grand over the life of the boat.

My only comment is that I wish Arnesons were less costly, then I would convert my rig.

List is $23K ea. and come with a one year warranty. Handling will be better than it currently is with Bravo's or any of the other mentioned options. The boat will dock better, steer better and handle better than the I/O's will.

It will also accelerate faster, cruise faster and have a faster top speed and did I mention you will not break them!

Rik--

What is the expected increase in top speed ???

Just wondering because when I asked about them for my Baja, you didn't leave me with the impression that I would see a top speed increase.

Typically 10 mph mid range and 10+ on top end.
