A 350 Chevy is a 350 Chevy is a 350 Chevy. They're good reliable engines but not exactly big on torque. 10 people + ballast I'd be wanting a big block. I'd wager your three small block options...

Haven't heard 40*, usually here it's around freezing or a bit below they don't want to pour. As it cures it will create heat so that gives you some wiggle room on temp. Not sure how cold it gets down...

Ugh, my IDI is averaging 12.8 MPG. Can't wait to swap in a ZF5 and knock cruise RPM down to ~2000 at 75... Now it's over 3000 RPM at 75. At slow speeds it's knocking on 20 MPG. Screaming along on the...

I got the Cipa 180 toward the end of the season. Only used it two or three times but I like it over my older Cipa mirror but so far I really like it. It is huge (bigger than I expected) and people...

I'd pay about $12k, as that's my ceiling for any boat and I wouldn't go over for something that I'm not crazy about the style (windshield and tower mostly). I'm sure market value is significantly...
