Hi David, 

How's the repower coming along?  I am servicing my cooling systems right now and I was think about your project.

Your power upgrade is terrific!  That is one project I would like to tackle...did you do it or was it done when you bought the boat?

Thanks for commenting...those "903" engines were/are workhorses---and aside from the weight, were an excellent power package for the 47's.  I wasnt aware they were in 72's... Are your's turbocharged or natural?  Any issues with sending units or mechanicals?

I purchased in 2017 from a Louisville, KY owner, but this boat was originally owned by the Brennan Marine family from Bay City where i brought it home to.

Yes, almost exactly the same boat.  I have admired your boat for years.  How many years have you owned it?
