Depends on whether you want to go boating, or fast boating.

Does the boat have drives/transom assemblies or are you looking for complete packages?

yes its kims old boat no drives or engines fast boating is the idea but not to kims extent!!! was thinking of 80mph but stability more important what about 350 mpi with bravo 1 with silent / loud exhausts or a couple of big blocks would sound rather nice.....
he had arneson drives in so i will have to rebuild transom but otherwise appears ok

To do those speeds in that boat your going to need a pair of 500+hp packages, probably cost you around 50k !!!!!!

The transom should be fine with bravos, as the arnersons used the same cut out and hole pattern.
