I had a Formula 311. I now have a 353. So you refinished the paint after a few years? What I am looking at is that the bottom has blistering going on. If I go and re-gel it then I will just...

Bottom Paint on performance boats

Ok I know it is a bad thing to even mention. The reality is a bottom painted boat is probably faster then just Gell coat from everything that I am reading. I am not talking about your fathers...

That may slow things down a little bit but the best solution would be some type fo 1 way valve. Kind of like land and sea makes for the backs of smaller boats. Hmmm now you got me thinking! :-)

I have two new HP transom assemblies that I am installing on my boat (Formula 353). The rubber gasket needs some type of gasket to hold it in place. I am seeing that Mercury recommends perfect seal...

Just saw that if you do the 3" boxes you have to raise the motors. So that is not going to happen. Probably better off just putting the transom assemblies back on and going with different drives.
