Jeff ... the price and weight diff. from #5 to #6 is substantial ... the #5 is good on a big boat (43) twin application to 800-900 HP no problem... may get alittle hairy after that. That being said ... If this is a situation where you can afford to go either way ... you won't regret going with the #6 (resale ect...) If this is a new boat ,your writing some BIG checks anyway.... DONT scimp on the driveline !!!!!

Jeff, in order my choices would be (assuming you don't go with #6s):

-Merc #5
-Arneson
-Weissman
-Sage
-Pulse Drives
-Merc #3
-BMAX
-Buzzi
-IMCO 4x4

Those would be my suggestions.

i rode in seans cougar when i was in palm coast a few weeks back, that had "SUPERBIG" ke power with #5's.#5's would be less than #6's. i agree with lucy, 3a's would work fine ,and would leave $$$ for juice

How many blown bravos, imco's, or B-max's does it take to pay for 1 set of six's or 5's. And once your stuck with the bravo type configuration they keep blowing and blowing and blowing....
