MTM, I haven't really tried, I have had 5 offers, and had to turn them away, cause I had someone buying the boat. But...that 3 month ordeal just fell through, alot of strokes in this world, and dummy me, should have collected a deposit, and not take the persons word. I'm going to the FT Laud. show to check out the latest changes and fads, and then order a new one, if can be traded in. Plan B. is if I don't get a new boat, I will be selling everything off the transom back and setting my Nortech up with new Weisman drives, and then upgrading my power with Whipples, should be a nice winter project. Sandy says "your never happy", always changing your boats and cars, the only thing I've kept is her for 19 years. Thanks Jeff

Jassman,
Heres a page from Arneson they list all the specs for all their drives. http://arneson-industries.com/Arneson%20Ratings.htm
I couldn't find a weight spec for the #6.
Hope this helps.

Hey Cougarman... another of Carroll Shelby's favorite sayings was this.... Aerodynamics is just an excuse for not enough horsepower........
