Default I Love Willis Coustom Boats

We started out wanting the Willis Coustom 22. Then fell in love with the Willis 30 ft. We have waited for other boats to be finished. Now its our boat, it will be a piece of Sea Art for sure. Tanks going in this week we are so excited. Just cannot decide twin Yahama 425 hp or Suzuki 350 hp any advise on engines would be nice. This will be truley a great build yes had to wait our turn but now our dream boat is in the finnishing process. More post to follow. AJ and his dad have been great to work with. Thanks AJ

Yamaha doesn't make a 400 and not sure who Yahama is. Don't recognize Suzkie either. Still some decisions to make.

you really must decide how many fuel pumps you would like on your boat. If you would enjoy over 9 fuel pumps then go with the yamaha 425. if you would like less than 9 fuel pumps then the zuke 350 is a clear winner

To be fair on the fuel pump debate.
Once manufacturer's start getting into DI engine and higher hp, you will see the amount of fuel pumps on an engine rise.
This system has one for lift, two in the VST(Only one runs all the time, the other is a back up and comes into play at higher RPM's), the last two are mechanically driven off the cams.
If they, one, two or all malfunction, it is most likely fuel related, which would affect the engine, not the pumps, whether it be, one, two or five.

Yeah, he knows

Look at the last page or two of that thread and see who jumped...

And if you look at the first post here. He says he's happy to be working with AJ at Willis. Then signs off as AJ...

New account at THT, 30 posts with pretty much all of them in the other Willis thread.. You do the math

30 Post joined in January and wants to start a post on how they want to buy a Willis, I may be wrong but looks fishy to me especially if you look at their post history.

Due to your previous posting history on this website here: https://www.thehulltruth.com/boating...-thread-3.html, you are probably trying to do something here by starting this discussion that you should not be doing due to your previous posting history on the website.

What's up is that a person with 600 posts on that joined in May 2005 started a thread happy as hell about the boat he was building, proud as hell on 8/17 then the build went bad do to lots of delays, well documented delays over months.

You show up out of nowhere and even after we are seeing you posted on the tread about the members issues with the builder decided to declare you are happy and buying one. You either work there are foolish with your money or both,.... good luck.

I have a great idea there is a super long thread about one persons experience with a 41 Jupiter why don't you go buy one and post how great your boat is going to be at least you would probably be more believable.
