Just about to start one of my winter projects.. My mantra gullwing. I have a 540 / 650hp aluminum dart motor for it.
Just was wondering if i should go with a ratchet on my pump. I dont plan on racing it... However, im sure its always a good thing to have. Im sure the boat will do 90. I have no way intentions going near or over 100. Just deciding if i should spend the money now and if i do i would like to do it now before setting up motor mounts.. Etc..
if you have any extra grand spend it, if anything it makes it nice to start and tune on the trailer.
I'll take one for a Grand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think that the price is up to $1495.00 now and you almost never see them used. I am not sure if I would install one for just a cruiser. They sure are nice though.
How long is your driveline? Depending on your pump setback won't it force you to move the engine forward a bit? If this is a cruiser do you have a back seat? You might not have room for one with a ratchet. I do not have one, but was considering it. I was told it could force me to lose the rear bench in my 18'.
