The engine in my '62 CC Holiday has seen better days. We've owned the boat for over 10 years, and have done a ton of work on it, including a new bottom 3 years ago.
But back to my problem. The 283 that came with the boat has been losing power for the last few years, and this summer it got to the point where I need to rebuild. Or should I?
I'm considering swapping the 283 for a 350. I think more horsepower would be a very good thing. We use the boat to wakeboard and ski, and it's never been really good about pulling people up when the boat has more than 4 passengers.
I've heard varying opinions, and scoured the forums and came up with very little on this subject. Thoughts?
