They are at the same level on the boat and there is a hose connecting them at the bottom that falls well below the bottom of the tanks. There is a T off that hose that goes to the fuel pump on the...

It's not a bayliner, but I consider all cruisers to be of similar quality. I would prefer not a cruiser but that's what the wife wants and I'm keeping my Donzi as part of the deal.

I agree with...

The force difference between 200 hp and 150 hp is negligible after you take into account prop slip. The important factor is weight when you consider the impact of the hull jumping out of the water. ...

Some boats arenít made to go fast. It has a big block I know but they put those in all kinds of boats, not just go fast boats. If youíre cruising at 20, you have a slow boat. No amount of motor is...

Keep it I/O and find a used power package on offshore only. I wouldnít spend 22k for a small block and drive on a boat that old unless you were doing a 100% refit.

A bravo 1 will have better top speed than a bravo 3 and slower idle speed if you need to troll real slow.

There is also a X, XZ, and XR but that probably not necessary unless you plan to beat on...

Often itís better to have a shop do an engine survey.

If itís a 5.7 block and a 5.0 label then the block was replaced. They didnít sell ďdetuned 5.7sĒ as 5.0s.

I find them to be more reliable than a float switch. The float switch gets banged around while you are underway depending on how your boat rides. You can always wire a switch into the boat so that...

You've raised the center of mass of the truck up by 6" plus the tires so maybe 8-9". That makes it less stable. It would do worse in an accident than a stock truck and may cause an accident where a...
