I'd be more concerned with the doctor bill...

The props are deeper and more shielded with the #6's, not by a ton, but they do seem safer... That said, make him grow a pair and jump off of the bow!

Arnesons may be better, but I don't care for their looks and doubt I'll ever exceed the capabilities of #6's.

Anything else out there?

This one is available, but it does not meet all of your criteria........it includes 900HP Chief Engines, Huber 1450 transmissions, runs very well, and is less than $120,000.

It's a Kevlar Cigarette Top Gun with a full cabin and No. 6 Drives.

Let me know if you are interested [email protected]
