You kidding? The boat does 75mph unmodded. I think the motors are powerful enough.... the boat is over-powered by 150 HP.

The spring unwound itself from the clutch dog and sent the cross pin flying. Damage was actually minimal.....new housing, spring and pin.

You kidding?.
yes i am. LOL
but wait. If you can do 75mph on a 150 Hp on a 27 foot boat. there must be something i'm missing.
because i know a while back we had a 190 on a small little 19 foot run about and it only did 50 mph. and it had it a after market prop
your boat is 8 feet longer with lesser HP and no after market prop.

No, no, you mis-read, I said the boat is over-powered by 150HP. We have twin 225 Optimax's on her. Boat is rated at 300HP.
