One of the coolest parts of the classic boat world is the variety of manufacturers and models available. Everyone has a favorite model depending on ones needs and desires. But over the years folks have swapped out motors and with modern technology new reliable fast light motors are tempting. But is old technology better? When some crazy circuit fails it can be a tad tough to fix it with a hammer and rusty screwdriver. Does that very sensitive throttle on a new motor help or hinder docking? Does your classic boat really need all that power to be fun. Or that old 8 ton 125 hp motor that stinks and has parts that always need tuning worth it? I honestly don’t know. But was your opinion? Is there a perfect motor for classic boats? Small block chevy? Flat heads? Duel Quads? Fuel Injection? New Merc cruiser? Hemi?
