Default 32 skater advise

recently purchased a 32 skater with trip 2.5's.. not sure of hours, but hot compression are between 100 to 120psi average , with a couple cylinders in the 80's and a couple at 150psi..they all run and idle well ,just weak. looking to have them freshened.. advice on who and where to spend my money.. boat is an x race kevlar layup that had quad 2.5's... when i got the boat it had been rerigged down to 3 with a pod and i got a spare motor... now it will live as a pleasure boat with the occasional poker run.. any advise is greatly appreciated..... p.s. i have quite a bit of experience building racing 4 stroke motorcycle engines. turbo and nitrous, but i am unfamilar with the 2 strokes..

Which boat is it? Did it have a name?

Shaun Torrente is the name I keep hearing when everyone asks about outboards, theres a ton of info on a couple of trip/quad o/b 32's in the Skater section here.. Congrats on the purchase, sounds like one heck of a project!

There's Diamond Marine and there's everybody else, IMHO. Joe and Marty are the best when it comes to 2-strokes.

I've heard good things about Jay Smith Racing, but if TGC-32 says Diamond Marine, they have to be good.
