I had Dave(MDG) build me 2 motors. The first one the crank broke. The second one I believe is still running in my old 28 Pantera. I think there are better engine builder's but Dave always treated me well and seemed to be honest. I guess the boat your looking at is a 36 Spectre? I know he was/is a dealer for Spectre and would get the boats with no engines and then rig them himself with 540's.

He built the motors in my 33 Powerplay.

They ran great and he was an honest trustworthy guy to do business with.

I would deal with him again for sure !

Dav is a great guy and his work does tend to hold up. I have never heard anyone have a bad deal from him and he is local to me. BJ was probably running his motor at 10k RPMs and doing donuts when it let go

Ted
Your correct, I did run full throttle all the time and got about 30 hours before the crank broke. The second engine he built me he used much better$ parts to put up with the abuse. Hope all is well Ted.
