Grew up in Jet Boat & V-Drive country. Unfortunately it devolved into Sea-Doo country.

I have been around powerboats for a few decades, do you have any questions ?  I can tell you that I put a 472/500 Cad in a jet boat many years ago (1986?) for a good friend of mine. You may be able to find pix of it in Hot Rod Magazine's archives, the boat was called "Flash Cadillac" and owned by Pete Pestiere of Super Chevy Mag (editor). I've done 2 V-drives with big Cads, both used T-400 trans., one with 'Ford 460 exhaust adaptors' and the other I fabed up some stainless headers with water. I'm sure Jim at Rewarder Headers can build you some nice 'chromed or coated' 4 tube headers (uncovered engine bay) if you need them.
