What specs do ya need? 38 foot steel hull 24,000 pounds current power twin 300 hp ford 427s.
I would like to think that the poster who suggests dry stack and closed loop cooling was talking about the use of keel coolers to cool the jacket water and the bit of the exhaust outside the engine room being dry not from the side of the cylinder head onwards
