Re: My Dream Boat Build Thread 29 Freeman

Looks Mission perfect to me! Don't see how you could do any better. I def agree with the F300's, that boat doesn't need F350's. The V8's are primarily designed for larger heavier craft. Those 300's will get it done and be better on fuel also. Congrats on the build Chad, she's a beauty!

You should probably carbon fiber the whole thing so it will match your guns

Re: My Dream Boat Build Thread 29 Freeman

That's incredible that you'll get 1.5-2 MPG with twin 300's

Congrats one beautiful boat!

Re: My Dream Boat Build Thread 29 Freeman

Any updates on the build?

good thing you picked 300s and not 350s. The 350s have been having a lot of issues, I believe with a flywheel from what I've read.
