    My problem is, the transom is built for a single inboard, and inboards as we know are less efficient, as the prop is pushing the stern up. Repower options for me max out at 430HP, unless I go with a bracket, or major hull re-configure ($$$$$$)
    You guys with twin outdrives have the best setup in in my opinion.

    Wave to us as you fly by, we will be the ones slogging behind the Ranger Tugs for now.
    A local Mech put one of these in a Bayliner 2859 last year (for a customer), I havent seen it out on the water yet, but hear is quite happy with the performance.

      Yes I was there Saturday morning. I saw you running thought maybe you had important business!! I saw a GP with a evenrude G2 and one that had a custom hard top on it out by baby Island also.

      • That is a supersized bracket deck.
        The cruise liner QE2 moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel that it burns.

            Thanks Gordo, How did you guys do? It was a little slow for us. Took home 11 dungee but had to set the pots twice to get them. I didn't see your bracket so I wasn't sure if it was you or not. Did you see the GP with the custom hard top?

              I always feel like I need to get the HE!! out of everyones way when it's busy there.

              On a side note I finally got smart and bought a one year "Annual Natural Investment Permit" it gives me unlimited launches at State ramps and it also covers the State Annual $30 Park Pass. It costs $80 for a full year from purchase date. So now every time I launch I have $7 extra to buy a good beer.

              • Cummis, that is the way to go. I did that when I lived on Camano. It paid for it's self very quickly.
