All of the reasons stated are accurate, gear case won't work, weak mid section, no ability to mount rear tie bar, extra weight(could be over come). Agreed, with an open budget you could make all the necessary changes, but then you will loose your warranty. Great idea, but the motors are not ready for that application.

Would be a timely and expensive project to take on. Bottom line running the numbers, the boat would not be faster and most likely would be slower then a 300XS set up. Low end torgue would be nice, but otherwise not worth the investment.
300XS is $24K retail and a 350 Verado is $29K each.
Thanks Mike!!

Good info. Hope you and the better half are doing well.

I stand corrected thanks DR.
