Self oil changing system.... :-D Between burning and pissing out of every orifice possible. But hey they run forever and then some. I bet that bitch goes 20,000hrs+

The 6-71 that was in my old boat before the repower was supposedly a WWII surplus engine. That SOB didn't even has an hour meter :eek:

They just dropped the price around 100k, they were asking stupd money for her for about a year. Looks like a nice boat.

Hollands seem to command stupid money, especially the 38's. This seems to be a great deal even if a repower is in the near future. Like already mentioned, usually pretty hard to kill these detroits ( especially the naturally aspirated) but trying to keep them from bleeding or smoking out the harbor is another feat altogether.

I love hollands, think they are some of the prettiest boats. Just to watch for delamination around the keel and the bulkhead. I know of two that had some serious issues, but dont get me wrong both boats were used pretty hard.

Block heater will eliminate the smoke on start up. Easy peasy, as they say. Good thing about the V6 is it probably keeps the engine all behind the bulkhead.

I don't know jack shit about stick boats but that Detroit is probably the best tuna raising motor I've ever seen on the troll. Might be the oil slick behind the boat or the way she rumbles but 6-92's plain old raise fish.

This has been said by many charter and tournament captains. 2 cycle detroits raise rish
