Chad will go faster in this boat than most of us will ever go on the water.

Tower of power?

rat rod = white trash on the water

It actually will be a bit of a rat rod restore because I am not going to put much if any money into this thing.

As for power, I'd like to find two merc 50 hp outboards from the late 60's early 70's. Otherwise a single 100 merc from the same time frame would do the trick.

Yes - and make at least one a high-backed bucket seat out of a Camaro.

As for the twins, make sure one's a Merc old enough to not be black and the other an Evinrude.

Well, that and plenty of PFDs so you can be rescued after the transom comes off.

Duff I am hoping to find the mercs that are white and black striped.

The transom won't fall off, I'll make sure of that :)

I had a 16' Lyman with a white/black striped Merc 15 and a side-mount "wheel".

I traded up to a pea-green Johnson 25. That thing pulled a skiier up.

Not well, fast, or on anything but a pair - but up. But then we slalomed behind an 18' tri-hull with a 65 HP 4-cylinder (!) Evinrude.
