It's my buddies facebook status, so unfortunately I do not have a link that is public. I did contact him and tell him about the Merc guys. Hopefully the word will get to the correct people.

If your exhaust are the cast iron manifolds, swap them for some cast aluminum 496 take-offs. The 496's should flow a little better and they will save you a ton of weight. You should be able to find...

I thought most peoples 29's ran 67-68 stock. 23's turning 5000rpm is what most post up. Maybe you were starting with something a bit off that is slowing you up.

That puts things into perspective! I was recently in Suolahti, Finland and on the way there only saw one small 223 Baja.

If it's a mid 90's 29'er like the one in that ad it came stock with 350's and went mid to upper 60's stock. It's also a narrow beam boat so I don't think BBCs would fit. I really like that...
