    Default Division I

    007 may have Elvis drive next year, but I'm betting on these four D'Cucci rigs winning Division IV...


    I need four drivers as there are four boats...None of this last minute stuff...LET'S MAKE A RUN ON DIVISION I......Can you see the look on those Division II-VI guy's faces, when we walk away with the OVERALL FIRST PLACE with a D'Cucci hull and OMC sterndrive????

    I looked at these four boats and said, "Self......No, you ain't driving one, but these boat have possiblities...Need some horsepower, need raised outdrive...need a race porop..need roll cage...need drivers...

    Truth is.....Batman got second in Division I (007), what could you do with a D'Cucci boat????? I'll sell you one of these D'Cucci's, boat, motor and trailer for $2,500.00.......(hard to tell what this is, but it is a16 footer, Four banger, OMC Sterndrive...What would happen with a 230 Buick V-6 in the mother??? A little cam, and heads!!!!! Even Elvis might not want to drive it...

    I'll drive one!!!! But, instead of the 231, drop in a 2.8 liter Vortek V-6 with 180 headers. 7K redline......

    Default Ok!

    I only knew of the 231 Buick because it was in my 1978 El Camino and that mother had power...

    A Vortek sounds better up front...

    What are the weak spots of an OMC Sterndrive??? (Don't say everything)....

    The only thing my dad hated a much as Mercs were OMC sternm drives, which I called "lower unit boats"

    The weak spots, the Paul drive mechanism, I.E. the screwball fingers made of brinze between the outdrive at the stern and the primary.

    Why they never used U joints was beyond me.......

    Default Myabe, We Should...

    I've looked at those OMC Sterndrives...Maybe we should just replace them with a Bravo drive!!!! I've got 14 of them...

    Yep. Cobras were a little better on a lower unit boat, but they still used those hideous pall mechanisms to drive the primary. Mercruiser is the best. Volvo makes a durable unit, but I'm not sure how well it runs.

    Default Me, Make A Misteak???

    Division I, yes... But I was talking of winning overall....Well, dreaming about Overalll...

    I think Division I had a projected speed of 70-75 mph....Seems to me, one of these little hulls, set up right, could get those speeds......and be fun and safe to drive.
