What kind of money do these run with a small block and an outdrive?
And at what speeds

I know it’s a little early, but are you guys planning on being at the boat show in January?

6.2L Indmar Raptor 440. Lots of sensors on this bad boy. Just got back from the Indmar tech class. Laptops over wrenches.

Yah it’s confusing
6.2l Chevy is the LS platform
6.2l Ford is the raptor truck engine
I believe a variation of the 5.0l coyote block.
Overhead cams etc no pushrods
That's kinda want I was thinking, being Raptor and all, thought the alternator looked GM-ish, hence the Ls platform.

Thanks
Dan'l

Why the raptor motor for jet drive? What about a 6.2 mag? Or a 496?
Raptor 440 is 400HP/ lots of torque / Good Price/ 5 year warranty. Only negative is the wide foot print/ Tier 4 EPA compliant / Good Fit for family jet boat.

The 6.2MAG is an outdrive mercruiser deal
The 496 is gone.

That make perfect sense. Keeping the cost down is a good thing. Thank you for the reply.

Where is your shop located so we can see the boats? Do you guys own the Cole 280s mold also?
I can use the mold, was going to buy it but BIG V bottom market is all but dead for new builds.

Perris shop we have 23 decks and 287 decks rolling

I can do a 280 anyway you want. Molds would need some time to be tuned up.
Costs depend on power and the finish you want on the boat.

If it were me, id look at a used V bottom. The market is soft and deals are out there. 280-S mid cuddy with a merc racing engine would still be $100k range.
