My man has a long trip ahead of him!!! Better bring a couple of gallons of vodka!

FL to TX with that thing? Those 2.5's are thirsty engines, he better have another one of those giant fuel tanks somewhere else on the that boat, cause that baby will drink the tank dry before it ever gets there... unless he's planning to follow the coastline for refueling. Never mind the fact that those 2.5's are time bombs, haha!

Also those appear to 15" mids, good luck getting the props deep enough! I think the powerheads would have to be about 12" underwater...

Who the hell spends their money rigging something like that. Has the evolution gone backwards???

Bet he blows at least one powerhead before making it to texas, 2.5's like RPM, not being lugged down by that tank.
