Love them old originals !

When you said 2 inline 265s did you mean 165s ?

It's my understanding they are straight inline six's 265' pushing 165 HP please correct me if I am wrong. She cuts the the waves like butter and sips the fuel rather than gulping it down like I do beer.

Thanks for the interest

KJ they were 250 cubic inch/165 hp engines... not sure where the 265 came from

over the years I have seen a handful repowered with the 292-185hp versions

I know where there is a takeout pair of 292's if your intrigued

Thanks for sorting that out guys . I didn't realize kirk was originally referring to cubes . Either way I think I'd still have been puzzled at the 265 number as Buz has now clarified.
Odd though that in most instances that I've seen when people refer to the l6 engines they give the hp not the ci .

Now , if they were 265hp l6's you'd have it all .. Speed , ride and still great economy .

Congrats on the new toy. Should be a great ride. FWIW, I don't think the 250s at 165hp/each or 292s at 180-200hp each (heard tell of some variants) are very good on gas, and they don't have much top end. But they're wonderfully reliable torque monsters, and easy to work on. I seriously believe I could have firewalled mine all day and they'd have just run, like diesels. Wide open was 4300 rpm. Plus, as skinny as they are, they're probably 25" apart on shaft centers. Lost a starter after lunch on the east side of Ches. Bay once, with a good wind and ugly chop. Came home on one motor. Hardly knew it was missing. Anyone who didn't know the boat would not have ever noticed. Boat would yank two slalom skiers out on one engine.

Those two 292s from my Cig 24 are now part collections in my storage unit, *dirt* cheap to a good home if someone wants to play with them, with an extra head as well. Machining on the blocks was done. Love to see them find a new life. I was going to have them rebuilt with some cam, to 270-300hp apiece, which I gather can be done reliably. But when they came out and were sitting on a pallet to go to the engine shop, I found out my 24 wanted a new transom. So I grabbed a modern 496, and now the 292s are collecting dust.

Still think someone should do a 16 with one...be the best 16 gas motor box to work in ever... :)

Anyhow, congrats on the 28--she's a beaut. Love to hear how she does. I'm guessing you can park her at 35-40 and she'll go through anything, all day long. :)

I owned a 1978 28'SS with twin 280TRS for 4 years. I'm sure those I6s will be easier to service than the V8s. Good Luck!
