Yeh but if you follow manufacurers recomendations, the thinking should have been done for you...Right?

cool i did wonder

i had a suzuki 85 two stroker smoker on a previous boat and that was tedious on the river, used to do your head in with the noise which is why i went to honda, however on the sea i am looking forward so much to thrashing the opti, glorious noise it makes

Why'd I want one of them then? If she's got her ass out the front, with her other end she can certainly blow down the Carbs and Supercharge the Merc. And I'd get more performance!

Something for me to look forward to in a decade or so then!

Hey Hightower, this Chris guy is a cheeky b'tard! He reckons that your missus arse could counter-balance a Verado 275!! What a thing.....!!

oops did i say 275 i must have meant 175, just took the dog for a walk so missed the last rush of excitement. i was meaning that put a big donk on the back so we can guarantee seeing her pert ass over the front of your boat

i am not as bad as my friend Mullulnan might suggest
