Re: Volunteers needed-Wounded Hero Alligator Hunt July 22, 2

Still looking for 1 more boat with gator hunting equipment for Friday night July 22 on Orange Lake, and 1 more boat with frog gigging equipment for Saturday night July 23 on Lake George. I believe this to be a worthy cause to support our wounded veterans, so if you have some gear and not otherwise o...

Re: Neils WaterThunder DD

Awesome, glad to hear about a CM DD busting some AC tail! Nice looking boat too. Real clean work.
I don't get too caught up in the debates about the CM/AC debates, but it does provide some great entertainment.
Thanks to all the builders of both.

Re: 351 windsor needs more ponies

You can buy a 408 stroker kit for that 351W for $1000 on up. You'll get a crank, rods, pistons, and rings. THe longer stroke will make much more torque. The long stroke is same reason you see so many 383 Chevys with longer stroke than the 350. If you like a Ford, stroke it. Im doing same with my win...

I hope the owner gets the gun back, but this poster is a stand up gentlemen for trying to do the right thing.

Re: What Ls motor to use on 12 ft diamondback

1. "My buddy is ready to upgrade from a 220 to a Ls engine"
2. "5.3 or 6.0"

1. Some on here will say that aint an upgrade. I think it is.
2. Bigger is better. Buy as many cubic inches as you can afford without the extra weight pushing your transom too low.

Good luck with your power change.
