I couldn't take it any more. I asked for some more details and pics on the GM powerhead.

The term "f*cktard" comes to mind for some reason.

1998 Mariner Mag 300, Update. I've replaced the powerhead with a twin turbocharged 3.6 ltr. GM V6 and a 90 degree drive. Also has a 200 shot of N20. Now swinging a custom 42 pitch one off prop. I also steepened the fore deadrise 10 degrees so this thing will run 120 in 4 footers. Really! Best part, new price $7995. All it needs is a new rear seat, it blew out at 130.
Propulsion:
gas outboard 2stroke ( Engine: Single 550 hp Mariner Mag 300 with 75 hours. )
Location: Green Bay, Wisconsin USA

That add reads like an April fools joke...

Actually, I found it because I have been looking for a pad vee or tunnel boat to play around with. Something that will run 100ish for under $10K.

After I found this gem, though, I figure I'll just sell everything and move into that 10* bottomed wave crusher.
