This is a good one!

Just saw this on Ebay, wish my rib could take 250hp!

but for those of you with bigger rib, if you want an amazing monster engine, you may consider these two! JUST LOOK AT THE PRICE! just under 9k for two massive 250hp???? would you believe that?

I'd have thought those fancy brackets were adjustible (or certainly cheaper to modify than new engines) so does that mean he needs longer shaft to keep the motor further away from the water - and possibly these have been getting we where they shouldn't?

Would imagine they'd get pretty swamped by the stern wave when it's throttled back,
and with the air intakes at the back I bet they've swallowed a bit of water in there time

He does say he's not used them since purchasing them.

Unfortunately I don't trust anyone, and I think it's more likely he mounted them, put the boat back in the water and found they were underwater.

Interesting hull design. On the pictures no controls or steering attached, so If nothing has happened on the project since pictures taken, it is possible they never been tested on this boat floating.

But hard to tell what is the actual situation. Wonder what speed such boat would achieve with correct engine set-up?

I agree .. I think theyve been under too .. the first pic is of the boat on the crane .. is it going in ? or coming out ? (or being moved) and still no steering gear attached etc ... definately a bit suspect

They are fine, he says the paintwork is great:

25 inch shalfs. Counter rotation. New S/S mirage props. Paint work in great condition.

What more could you ask.

It's obviously been converted from Inboards with legs, and the new Brackets cover up the holes in the Transom.
I think this because he's left the Davits on that would be useless to hold a tender in that position with outboards.

Either that or the Tilt and Trim doesn't work so he uses the davits instead

The lowest bolt visible in the picture of the engine(without hood) looks more corroded than the others. Maybe a co incident or then not. Why was that picture edited so that lower parts are not visible? Maybe it has been "under" during "waterline trials".

Don't get it how someone can afford to purchase such expensive engines without a proper plan, would have been cheaper to test with steel weight's rather than with the real thing.
