I know you must be thinking about it?
Triple 2.4 Bridgeports would make on bad azz boat...but thirsty and ornery also!! Ultimately, a couple of steel bore fishing motors built to 240 hp would be a great combo and fuel efficient! Mike said I should see 75MPH with 200 on the Gil brackets...

They show up small for me too HD. I click on them and they just open up to the same small size. I've been following along on S&F so I've been getting my pic fix from there.

Just some advice, as soon as you can afford to get rid of the Gil Brackets and get one made by Stainless Marine. Couple of reasons, the pipe on the Gil's will rot out where it can't be detected, a lot of turbulence during takeoff with them, added stress to transom. The Stainless Marine is a sealed unit which adds flotation, usefull as a swim platform and the load is spread across the entire transom. I know because I had a triple engine Sonic back in the day and did a similar undertaking. Good luck, just trying to help by sharing some of my experience with you. Some of the Gil's do have a stainless diverter plate bolted on the bottom to help eliminate the turbulence I mentioned above. If you have them good if not try to find or fabricate some.

My Gil Brackets have the stainless steel diverter plates!

This morning I received the original build sheet from Mike Combs at Checkmate!! The boat was ordered 4/26/1984 by Dorchester Marine (Ben Robertson) and shipped on 06/21/1984. The boat was a "Custom Edition" called the "Ashland Special". AME 4000 resin, transom modified for 3 engines, blue printed bottom, 96 gallon fuel tank, triple pre-rig harnesses, fuel guage, Stainless Steel trim tabs, tab dash indicator, dual hynautic steering with tie bars, extra heavy duty Gil battery boxs, red racing deck stripes, hull/white gel sides/black bottom, deck/white gel/black trim!! Very Cool to have this piece of history on my boat!!

Spent the entire day high speed wheeling out the hull with Maguires Cleaner Wax. The black gelcoat on the sides came out pretty good. The black deck stripe is going to take some work but the red stripes on the deck came right back!!!

Jup try this on the gelcoat http://compare.ebay.com/like/1208578...Types&var=sbar YF used perfect it on his 283.
1~ removes 1200 and finer sanding marks
2~ Polish removes swirl and puts da shine on er!
3~ is finer than #2. Removes swirls on black and makes it crystal clear
