Re: Am i crazy???? Double cabin VS Marque

This project will definitely end up in the loss catagory. The only reason I am interested in it is I can buy it and pay for repairs out of play money a little at a time.

Re: speed of a 37 with twin 440's

Hopefully going to do some more digging in tomorrow. Basically going to try and inspect blocks for cracks from freezing, water in oil etc. Then checking continuity of wiring etc. If motors cracked etc that's not of big as a concern as wiring. If wiring is shot I'm walking.

speed of a 37 with twin 440's

I have been following the forum for a few months awaiting approval to post. I understand that these boats seem to be very trim sensitive. Also very balance sensitive. A couple of questions.
