Todd...I'm just curious (I hope to be in the market next year ), could someone move the throttles to the passenger side so they could be used by either the driver or the passenger?

Look at it this way. You've got a great boat to be stuck with
Ditto.

I'm one of those people.

If this was 5-6 months in the future your boat would be sitting in Arkansas.

502's are cheaper to replace, 1/2 the price. 496's are nice due to being distributorless, closed cooling, etc. 496 has two versions 375hp and 425hp. As for electical problems with Baja, no experience with them.

My mechanic and others I've spoke with says that the rotating assembly of the motors are almost never responsible for why they break. I spoke with a local parks service and they have over 2000 hours on a big block. They have done several valve jobs along the way but haven't touched the bottom ends. Said they were planning on a total tear down next year.

I'm not a mechanic so I guess I'm just gonna have to trust mine. Like he said its his reputaion on the line for his opinions and experience (over 23 years) and he wouldn't send me out on the water knowing that they could hand grenade at any moment. Hell, she's running better now then when it was new so why not just keep her. It's an outstanding looking, handling and well built boat.

So I'm staying in the Offshore game..
Guess you all aren't getting rid of me yet...lol
Todd,
I seriously don't know why your boat hasn't sold either. it is a sweet boat, especially for the money. I thought of selling the Powerplay because we want a Gladiator, but the market sucks right now. We are dropping in some used (low hours) 500EFI's and will have a turn-key boat to use for a while.
We are going to make the best of it and enjoy the boat. I hope you do the same and enjoy yours.
Gerard

I personally like the 502, but the 496 is coming around Electrical problems with what...cabin, cockpit or engine electrical? My brother in law had a 25 Outlaw and never had any trouble with it. All in All a good boat!!

I'm sure you're tired of hearing this by now, but if I had the "scratch" I'd be all over that boat.
I don't see why anyone complains about the twin bolster. I would actually search for a boat with that.
If I'm boating, my wife will be with me - and I got this funny thing - I kinda like her - and I like having her next to me. My buddies can hold on in the back seat.
She loves crushing waves as much as I do.
