Birthday present to myself! Atlas heavy duty 8" hyd. Jackplate to carry my Verado 300 Pro! A big thanks to Nick at Nick's Creative Marine for hanging the motor and rigging her up as a birthday gift. I love you bro! My wife also got me some Checkmate swag and a gift card to Eddie Marine! I see some anodized red bezels in my Pulasare's future!

congrats Jup! but why didn't you just have Eric Simon turn that 275 up to a 300? I talked with him a couple yearsw ago and he said that this could be done very easily and at a cheap price.

Eric Simon can flash the computer and build more horsepower on the 275 but there are some other major differences between the 275 and 300 Verados. Mainly, the 300's have forged pistons/rods etc. vs cast and the 300's have a windage tray to reduce horsepower robbing oil sloshing in the crankcase. Furthermore, I went from a 2006 Verado 275 to a 2012 Verado 300 (with only 130 hours) and also got the Platinum Mercury warranty til 2019!! Lastly, between what I sold my 275 for and what I paid for the 300 it was a no brainer decision! I'm lucky to have good a good Checkmate friend that lives close by!!

Here's a peek at my fabricated 7/8" thick T6061 aluminum transom savers I built for my Pulsare 2400 to hold the Verado.

Thought I'd give you an update on my Pulsare 2400 Bowrider. Just bought some bling for the dashboard and something to monitor my Verado 300 Pro! Mercury SmartCraft SC1000 gauges (speedometer and tachometer) with white rims and red bezels!

The Speedometer works off of water pressure that is sent to a sensor on the motor (no more running a water pressure line to the dash). From what I'm told they're fairly accurate. I'll find out once I compare it to my GPS app in my phone. Either way, I excited to being able to monitor my motor functions from the gauges!!
