    Default Need new power

    New member here.

    It was out on Saint Patty's Day and

    Lost the motor.

    Looking for some advice on a new motor.

    I have a 28 foot silhouette deck boat.

    That had a mercruiser 502.

    With a Bravo one outdrive.

    Would like to upgrade to at least 800 horsepower?

    Maybe a blower.

    I know I've gotta do hydraulic steering and probably

    A closed cooling system.

    Any

    Thoughts comments or concerns.

    I live in Concord.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I want to thank everyone for your comments and suggestions .Yes their is a wide range of possibilities. Its just mainly about $$$ what I really want. I had about a hour long conversation yesterday afternoon with Don at High Performance Marine and he brought me back to realty of what is realistically possible .So that being said I am going to embark with him to build a good motor and whatever else it takes to get me back on the water. I'll keep everybody updated on the progress.
