Here is just what you need to power the new Zip. 600 hp V12

Sure will be interesting to see how that pans out.
reported to be $77,000 each.
SevenMarine is already out of business, they were dreadfully expensive.
This new 600Merc is rather complicated, the lower unit steers while the powerhead remains solid to the transom.
The Volvo IPS drives are on their way out, expensive to maintain, and the seal at the steer bearing is failing
Oak..........the juice ain't worth the squeeze :D :shock: :o :)

We may need to add an extra transom knee.

These pictures are from the Milwaukee Winter Boat Show that is running the next week. Our ACBS Chapter is displaying some of our classic boats. I will try to post more next weekend when Rich and I are attending again to help out at our booth. Let me know if I can get any pictures of things that might be there that might be of interest.

This is a 27 foot fiberglass outboard cruiser that reminds me of the True Grit. 300 hp. outboard power.
