I would get a new one, or atleast a newer one.

I have a Merc 15hp 2 stroke, (02) on my caribe 10' RIB She does pretty good. I like the motor, fast, easy to start, and shift, and I dont feel its too heavy to lift off the boat in the water.

On my F-32, the ring around the outside of the lock cylinder unscrews. With that ring off, you can remove the lock cylinder and then the lock bolt mechanism.

Its pretty straight foroward.

There is a local shop here with a set of Crusaders 350hp 454, with less than 300 hrs. I am temped to pick ...

I am under the impression that the performance will be fairly close to the same. Currently your 360 ci motors are putting 250 hp. The 350 ci motors are about 270 hp. each. If swinging the same propellers, there would be almost no noticeable change. With the newer motors, you might be able to re-work...

I was thinking of this for my Carver, but I ended up getting the Trojan. I would head to the local pick and pull junk yard. Bring some tools and pick up a power seat and adapt the mechanical parts to the boat seat. I was looking at the GM power seats. The parts are compact, and with some fabricaton ...
