    About 6 lol ... But now it's ready for. Clean cuts and clean swap. Hoping to make it look As factory as possible when it's finished.

    What engines are you going for ? One nice thing with these boats is one can hydro turf the entire inside and they feel and look way more finished. Never been a huge fan of their naked look.

    I am going with two Sho motors. And I have brand new factory carpeting for inside!

    Any idea what your plans are for guages? Getting a setup out of a newer twin 1800 jet boat would be the way to go but probably tons of money
    I would like to build one of these one day

    At this point the interior is done and I'm just waiting on the motors. Interior looks fancy but I'm not putting the interior in until the engines are in, and all the fueling and plumbing is done.

    I actually have thought about it. I don't really need a speed gauge as much as I need rpm gauges. And on this set up I don't need exact to the tenth rpm measurement just enough to run. It's engines at same approximate rpm range

    Wouldn't you have to leave the stock guages plugged in somewhere? It's a shame how goofy they would look side by side
