    I appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

    JohnAndrew - Both the 701 and 760 engines you are looking at are 2 stroke. Space in that engine bay is tight to say the least and I cant even think of a 4 stoke that would physically fit in the space without doing a LOT of fiberglass modifications, not to mention the ridiculous amount of custom metal fabrication that would no doubt be required to make everything work. So if you have crazy fabrication skills, tons of free time and lots of money have at it. Or make your life easy and put in a 760. Or just buy a small skiff with an outboard and sell the Whaler, it would be cheaper in the long run. Just sayin.
    06 SXR Limited, a couple of modded RNs, and WAY too much other crap !!!!!!

    Thanks Glenn

    What are your guys/gals thoughts on putting in a 760 two stroke with fuel injection? Would/could it be a direct swap (motor mounts and such lining up) or pretty close?
    Would I get enough extra horsepower or more importantly torque by doing so?
    Thanks and cheers

    The 760 (or 701 and 650) all use the same motor mounts and similar blocks. It's a direct bolt in and you don;t hav eto change the driveshaft. My 760 conversion is fantastic- it's a new boat with 95 hp and the dual carbs are pretty smooth and start the engine in just a second or two- I'm probably selling mine (central Maine) as I want to do a new project with a water bike, but this one has been fun for the last 10 years I've owned it.

    After almost 5 years of patience and searching, I finally joined the Rage club . Mine is silly mint. Belongs in a museum. Never left Door County Wisconsin its whole life till I took it home on Sunday. Owned by a meticulous engineer who handed me a binder full of every document since new. This thing was maybe in the water 50 times. Can't even have 100 hours on it. Even came with a trolling motor and separate battery = he liked having a back up plan for lake Michigan, go figure. Took it out for the first time last night, my first Rage ride ever actually. Even with a buddy, I was surprised how quickly it planes with the stock 650. Cruises nicely in the high 20s I would guess. Yeah, one of my spare 701 motors will find it's way into this Rage, probably this winter...


    WHEN IN DOUBT, GAS IT!

    Yeah, I'm an @sshole, but I'm not a complete @sshole.

    I'm just so damn busy. Finally getting to some old SJ projects that were on the back burner. Father in law passed and caring for mom now. House stuff to do. 2nd house to help deal with. But yeah, this thing is cherry. Kinda wanna relax and enjoy the rest of this summer as much as possible first, then add HP to the Rage later. If the first ride was disappointing, I'd be motivated to swap it sooner, but it really wasn't too bad.

    Without a doubt the nicest one I've seen over the exact same thing.
