You will not be disappointed in the Mercury's, they are awesome on my Glacier bay. I decided to go with 4 blade props and the boat has better much low to mid range response, less top end speed.

That boat needs twins, not enough prop in the water to push it with a single. A single 7 Marine engine would do it, though - big prop.

Can you do a 12" and a 9"? You will want to have bottom / chart / radar up all at once which means split screen on one of them. 9" is sort of small for split screen, but definitely doable. ...

I'd be looking at Freeman, Invincible, and Prowler. The Freeman rides great and I love that boat, but it is all fishing so you need to look and see what is important to you. If spending that kind...

I see you have a small amount of salt developing under the cowling. Don't be afraid to hose it off with fresh water periodically to remove that. Don't use high pressure or a ton of water, but you...

I spoke to Rhodan about the 96" about 10 days ago and they told me the wait was 4 to 5 months. They are filling orders for the shorter shaft lengths sooner than that, more like 3 months.

Yes, the thermostat housing is plastic and was replaced about 3 seasons ago. If there was a source for an after market metal housing, I would certainly switch to that but haven't found one.

I'd be looking at the 31 or 36 Prowler, cats. The 31 is a huge boat, more like 33' long. The 36 is a newer design, not sure if it's in that price range, or not.
