    Welcome to the board. Sorry to hear about your engine trouble. I had to do this type of swap when I was in the navy. Not fun. The hardest part was figuring out how to rig the motor out of that hole and get it on the deck.

    Fuel Prices Won't Stop Boaters

    Well said Chris. With the price of gas I am not in a big hurry to finish the boat. The big merc on the back loves to drink the stuff. A day of boating and having fun = 19gal in the boat + 2 6 gal portable cans. About $230 and then another $100 in the truck to pull it to the lake. Ouch.
