      Hi, I am likely going to re-power my old Coastal 27 with new gas engine this spring....looking at Michigan Motrz and Performance Pro Tech for an (almost) complete drop-in motor...any thoughts ?

      What did you do to purchase the engine for your new build ? Thanks for any insight you can share.

        Mine is getting a Mercury 380 HP 8.2 liter, brand new engine. For a repower id be looking at a multi port injected engine, however something a generation back that doesn't have cat's like the latest and greatest. What HP do you want? Mercury remannd engines are one good cost effective option too.

        Hi there, I am not much of an engine guy. I have a 5.0 230 HP (?!!) now and want to upgrade to a 5.7L with these same mounts , shaft dia, etc. Where did you buy your engine from ? Do you know the two places I mentioned ?

      Have you seen your "on engine" fuel filter yet. I am Curious as to what it looks like. I had a new gasser at my last yard with a crazy multi-piece mess making fuel filter. The builder put in a location so you couldn't put a bucket under it. So I had to shut off the bilge pump and let it dump in the bilge then clean the bilge after.

      Jon -
      I saw that ad for the radar in Wells after you'd replied. If you end up having an extra one, I'd be glad to buy it... I'm in the market for a low priced radar - I'm rarely in fog or out at night, but figure it's nice insurance. Just figured you might end up with an extra one!
      THANKS - and also, thanks for ALL OF THE GREAT INFO as I've been working on the Tripp... Getting there!
