Re: inline 6 or 350?????

I had a boat with a 250 inline and went to a 292, they both worked great but I had a hard time finding heads for them.

Re: Dave Balman is sliding in heaven now

Sorry to hear from Edwards Family, used to see him at the check station with my dad on Friday nights and sundays, also used to see his yellow dodge all over bird road during the week. I don't live in Miami anymore but sad to see glades culture pass on.

Re: Southern glades

If you mean Southern Glades WMA, the answer is maybe... The old spot where guys used to drop their boats on the west side of US1 is not accessible since FDOT did the wall and fencing. There is a ramp on the canal but you would have to find a spot to jump the levee to get in the marsh. There was ano...

Re: Newbie frenchie need your discard for 1st build

You need to go wider, for 2 reasons, first it will help you get on a plane easier. the second reason is for safety it will be alot better handling and stable, if you went to at least 60 inches wide. my opinion

Try to find some four blade plates and run 4 blades. I run a four blade 68 on my 350 dd and it goes pretty good.
