no stocker rochesters for now.
spread bores (as were all of them)
I do have the adapter plates to convert to square bore.
I was thinking the edelbrock marine carbs but I looked at one and to me, it is nothing more than a rebuilt rochester (lots of improvements though)
Im thinking over the winter im going to pick up 2 demons 750's or maybe 800's
Depends on how the rochester 750's do.
dumping more fuel in there is not always the answer.
I dont really care about fuel consumption but I dont want to be filling this thing every 2 hours ya know.

That was one thing i was going to do, new carbs but had to hold off due to budget reasons (wife)
Im doing okay, im about 13 thou into it so far so for 2 nearly 500 HP engines, all new everything that I could get i dont think im doing too bad.
im really Jonesing though to get this thing wet
go out for the 4th and spend a few hours cruising around 3000 or so RPM's for break in period.
after that ill lay into it a little bit but break in will determine how long they are going to last.

Joe, Break in , 20 minutes in different RPM's on trailer, shut it down, change oil and filter, then run for about 3-4-5 hours, change oil, then am I good to go?

JB IS RIGHT!
In my experience with the sonics I can tell you that if you want to sleep on the boat by yourself, you better be pretty loaded to sleep through the night. If you expect to sleep in the v berth with your wife, you better give her a ruffie because niether of you will be comfortable. The reason is because the walk around deck makes the v berth very small.

As far as speed, I would think high seventies would be a reasonable expectation with 500's. I say this because my 358 with 500 EFI's and Extention Boxes consistantly goes 74 on GPS. I saw 76 with perfect conditions. Yes my 358 had all the goodies except for the generator.

vee-berth size can't be smaller than my 32 fountain cant it? headroom has to be a lot more, width? maybe less. hatch up front would be nice.
