I have a 353 and blew out my windshield on Lake Erie, in part because the frame flexed. I'd be very interested in a support bracket. I'm not sure if what you are building would fit on my boat,but I'd...

Unless you are north of 90mph, I don't think a nose cone will do anything. That said, my Fastech was a handful over 90 and after putting the nosecones on it felt a bit more stable. Also gained a...

That's a hard question to answer. My boat is 9k lbs and the motors make 750ish hp. One set lasted 6 seasons, the next lasted two. I will tell you that I think rolling on the power is a better bet...

I went through this a few years ago after taking one over the bow and blowing out the windshield on my 353 on Lake Erie. The frame flexed, causing the glass to shatter. I'm not the only one that this...

Yes. Turn In for more top end. It will carry the bow better, but you will lose low speed maneuverability. I tried it on my 353. I loved the way it ran, but around the dock was so bad that it was not...

I tried spinning in on my 353. It sucked the stern in and allowed the bow to carry better. I think it ran better that way. That said, it sucked around docks. So much, that in the end, I went back to...

Great boat. Those blue motors are very reliable. However, you will need to do the topends of the motors at 250 hours (mercury recommended service interval). You should see 80 mph or so with 500’s....
