I completely agree. A newer 350 would be sweet. If costs were no

fairly significant transom reinforcement. Same would apply if one
dropped in a MerCruiser Alpha, but that would be un-thinkable for a
died-in-thewool OMC owner! :)

PS -- I'm on a business trip to Miami (South Beach) this week. Not
getting on a boat down here is killing me!
