    I figured I'd throw this up there for inspiration. Nothing special, just a Holman & Moody 289 all cleaned up and brought back to working condition.

    Before...



    After...

    Boats are cheap if you do all the work yourself.
    Gas.... Not so much...

    I have a cuisinart that makes the tastiest whiskey sours that runs around those rpms

    a vertical Merc can really scream but I don't think my little old Ford will spin past 4400 rpm.


    well at least it is in the boat now

    the after and before should be pretty obvious

    Looking good Matty. A whiskey sour sounds good given the number of powerheads I have blown. Another weekend down the tubes.

    thanks,

    sorry to hear that, that stinks having boat issues. the number weekends up by us is getting shorter as are the days

    hope you get back on the water soon.

    The before and after pix are worlds apart. Can't wait to see the whole boat!

    Days are too short. Finally heading to the lake tomorrow though.

    Well, supposedly my little 289 will peak out around 5800 rpm in the water. I don't know if that's just the performance parts or a bad tach but that's what I was told. It also supposedly did 6100 rpm before the prop change.

    We'll see!
