Welcome. Congrats on the purchase. Is this the blue mid cabin 33 from National? If so, I was thinking of doing the same thing but decided against it as I want a 38 Cig. We boat at LOTO and have a place at the 5 MM. I'd love to see the boat when you get it up and running. Good luck. This is a great site to learn and find parts to complete your boat.

Eddie Young and Ron Potter would be two engine builders I would call. I'm sure others will chime in with their favorites. The 33 is a heavy boat so you'll need more than a 525's power to make it run good.

For drives the Arneson #6 Bravo replacement will work well for you. For steering Latham is right up there. I would recommend Livorsi if the boat has no gauges. Mike's prop-slip gauge is a must-have.

You don't say how much experience you have with big cats but you might also consider taking a driver's course. It will knock 10% off your BIG insurance bill too.
