Default Purple Haze

Purple Haze is going through an engine freshening adding power and some modifications. Looking forward to summer. More to come!

Looks like we will be adding about 150 HP each motor. Still sorting out parts and configurations but's the goal. Do a little each year and they stay almost like new. It's a great boat!

Between 625 and 650 each. I upgraded the drives to XR gears last year and want to keep the drives alive. Will probably install Drive Guardians as well.
