Re: Ford 351 w / merc 233

My F32 had 233hp Merc's and they were very good engines. As to the RPM question, I would hit about 4200 - 4400
depending on load, Gas, etc.

Re: Twin 350hp outboards on F36

you will have a lot of investment in those engines and modifications then it's worth. In addition i believe you would have a hard time selling it later on

You might be better off just buying different boat with outboards already

just my opinion!

Re: F39 ?!?

Pretty Kool, but it's just too proportionally off. I would think an F36 would have a better choice for something like that

Re: Trojan f32 comversion to 4bt single

I agree,

You will just waste a lot money for very little return and in the end you will have a boat that you will not be able to sell!

Re: 1976 F-44 an Off Shore Boat?

A Ocean can be as calm as a Lake and Lake can get as rough as a Ocean, as stated before pick your days. I have a F28 down here at Orange Beach, Al and take it out in Gulf Snapper Fishing all the time, but I am no going to do it in 4 ft seas nor would I want to

Re: Modern engine upgrades?

I think if you put V6's in the boat your resale value will really suffer! I have a F28 now and the previous owner replaced the old Chrysler 318's with Crusaders 350's and they perform well

Re: New Member 1974 F32

I had a 75 F32 that had 351 Mercruisers and I loved them! Simple and easy to work on and parts easy to find. After having boats with Chrysler's and Crusaders I would take those Fords blocks anytime.
