    ... because everyone wants a 4 stroke or a direct injected 2 stroke.

    A Merc 2.5l can put out 300+hp and weighs in at 175# (powerhead only).

    As amazing as they were, we will all soon be engulfed in ocean because of them. Personally, I feel that's a small price to pay.

    Agreed...

    Trailer Boats Mag did a 50HP comparison in their Aug 09 issue. Link

    Good info, but that's all on a 16' boat where weight of a 50 doesn't play a huge factor.. on a 10'er it does..

    thanks for the link though. :)

    How about a Big Johnson :D. Might be a good idea if there was more than 4 or 5 ever built.

    Those didn't live so well, but definitely a cool hot rod!

    Didn't you have some rotaries @ some point? Something about a snomobile rotary - thought I saw some pics somewhere.

    Ahh. Somebody over @ S&F posted some pics that you were asking for - or something. I probably got it confused :D.
