    IMCO Gimbal Ring Torque Specs

    Is the torque specs for the 2 bolts on the top of the IMCO Gimbal Ring the same as a regular Mercury Ring ? Believe it's 55 lbs

    LS engine or Big Blocks

    Alexi at Boostpower basically described it as a supply and demand issue. Not many folks in the performance boat market are looking for LS stuff so most of the builders aren't doing custom stuff for them.

    Eliminator Eagle 43' on Craigslist

    Gets the Center of Gravity of down. Also in a V bottom the faster the boat goes the more it picks up out of the water. If they are out wide you would have to run them really deep. By keeping them in the center you don't have to run them as deep.

    Eliminator Eagle 43' on Craigslist

    Lol I'm looking forward to the responses to this. Personally I would put them at the lower end of the West Coast high end builders and will openly admit others would know more then me. I would run them though vs many others. Boostpower Carson Brummett Teague Custom Marine Pfaff GT

    565 or 600??

    Much Better Quality The main benefit is the gears are bigger which overcomes the limiting factor of the XR drive gears. The drive takes a bravo transom assembly, only requires a helmet change(what the drive bolts to). The drive is physically bigger as well, this isn't a problem for the upper...

    565 or 600??

    Teague quoted me 58k for a 1050 a few years ago so I would say 50-55k ? It's a nice piece. Family Friend has 2 in his daytona and he said he won't run anything other then Teague from now on.

    565 or 600??

    An M6 has to have a transmission so the rigging would be entirely different in the boat. Also I know Teague doesn't like to run 6's on a single setup as it's a surfacing drive and the boat could lose control. As far as drives go do not discount the IMCO SCX, it's a nice middle ground between...

    2021 Stock Market

    I agree with this 100% Currency requires stability which crypto isn't (at least now). It moves around as much as 30% a day and on people tweets. My positions in crypto are strictly a fomo play on if it goes to 500k.

    2021 Stock Market

    Closing in on 75% on my LMND play. Going to console myself for missing the CLOV boat on that one. I agree with the above. When the meme stocks run it sucks money out of everything else including crypto.

    Fuel cooler

    Do any of stock NA Mercury motors come with a fuel cooler ? I've never known anyone with an EFI setup to have a vapor lock issue. That having been said Alexi put one on my boat for insurance was the way he put it.

    2021 Stock Market

    A guy I got my MBA with pretty made enough retire on last year on TSLA calls( we're in our mid 30's). Granted he sunk his entire life savings into calls, they hit, and he just kept rolling up. Ironic we spent 10s of thousands of dollars learning diversification, valuation, and get out in the...
