thank you exactly what i mean....and yes i do know rik, and he rebuilt my arnesons, the 8 is the way to go for sure, just to be safe, i hate to see you spend all that dough and be fixing it

Hey Shawn I did here you were looking for a 36. What boat did you buy? The nacca scoops that mount on the inside are butler built, check for their web site. There is a thread on this board about nacca scoops, pantera boats makes some in fiberglass that can be installed with 5200 thats what I am going to use. For pictures check the technical board for thread.

I wonder what a ASD 6 drop box would cost for a 25'


I plan on staying under 500 hp fpr the life of the drive

I know what the 8's cost , are 6's really a better price

Michael, thanks for the info.

I got a 36 that Randy Sweers had in Florida. Its on his site FASTBOATS.COM, its a 1999 with HP500 carbs. I finally got the XR drives I wanted.
Jim and Jean went with me to sea trial it and we had a blast. I drove it to Miami for lunch with Randy on the sticks, it shows when you have a guy with his experience and seat time running the boat.
Looking forward to the summer with the additional size and canopies.
How is your boat? Do you need to do anything before the season?
We gave up on the idea of racing in NJ this year, just going to run on the Bay.
See you soon.

Shawn

Shawn Sounds great that boat should run as fast as your30. I can't wait to see it. My boat is pretty much ready to go just waiting for weather. Good luck with your toy, hope to see you soon.

SORRYfor the late reply but I have people in from out of town so its hard to get to the board .
Byron I have as my profile said a cat ,with out arnsons I like the #6's as they will turn sharper and dock easier for and old man like me !!
I like slingshot think the asd-6 are really a patch for bravo's and with your power its going to be on the limit as far as the spec sheet says, Ijust wanted you not to make a mistake and buy the asd6 with your weight and power ,,,,I don't know the price difference but I would really go with the 8's or switch to number 6's unless the money is to great and I don't know that .
I think you'll love your boat !!!

PS,, yes the 12's would be the real deal with more power !!
