power will push the boat at 45 - 50 mph, so my boating pals don't leave me in

Your outdrive unit is not rated for that extra HP. You'll probably need the
drive that is used on the Johnson "Surfer" with the 210 hp V-8 engine.

I've not gotten a chance to swap out the intake manifold gaskets on my 71
Surfer - 19' w/Johnson trailer. I'm knee deep in replacing the floor on my
pontoon boat "Serenity Now" .

I'm open to offers for my Johnson Surfer AS-IS, Where-Is - Hendersonville, TN.
I have $1,100 invested and need to find a new home for it. It would be a good
source of ann out drive for the 210 hp boats. It also has a stainless prop.
