Hey guys.

All good here... just busy with life = family, business, house reno, etc, and I just not even enough time to keep trying to find a home for them.

A shame as would be nice to see them fixed up and on something.

Spot on re a Powercat.  That, or a large timber cruiser (like what they came off), were the top of my list plans at one stage.

I'm not checking in here too often, so maybe if anyone is keen just shoot me an email (aaroncjenkin@gmail.com).

Hope you guys are all great.

no doubt these belong on a powercat!
I have room for one more project in my yard
Ken's powercat Aj's mercury's
I am happy to foster the bastard love child until a proper parent is found.
I remember this thread and went through it again.
AJ I did laugh and felt your pain when you mentioned the canned outboard sound in the doco.

Good to hear from you and trust you are well .
Gee what a pity you have not been able to move them .
They would be the cat's whiskers if they were long shaft to sit on SX 2.
She is now back in the water and Mercman has had a drive .
You may have seen the photos .
Guy migh comment on the situation as to whether there is some way the Mercs can be adapted to SX 2.
The current 81 J's have done little hours and would still bring a good price if they were replaced .
Anyway 'dreaming ' !

HI Gang,

I hope you are all keeping well.

All good here, but no boat stuff for a few years now and not looking like anything any time soon.

I wanted to bump this one back up the top, as I still have the twins just sitting there and would like to see them find a new home.

Open to any/all offers.

Hi Nigel,
well i understand how you would consider what four lined up may look like, Um three is very impressive.
I have just added a 1975 1500 long shaft to my collection and have them side by side for comparison.
Sounds awesome and loud - cant wait to give it a run ......
I shall be consulting you as things progress, if I may.
cheers Tom

Sorry Tin Man,
       My mistake, you sure bought a nice motor, bit sorry I passed on it, but I've already got three, and how many xs Mercs does a man need, probably four!
           Good luck with your project, and remember, 'if in doubt, trim it out.'   Nigel.

I don't think that the 1500xs is genuine as the cowl is not fluted....It's definitely not the the one from Brisbane Old Racer because it was MEEEEEE!
Apologies everyone I don't post because I have no progress to report, but now that my motor is finished! I am motivated to work on boat.
I am glad you liked it Old Racer and that you met up. I told Graeme he would like this site but he said internet too challenging.
I see he still has 2.5 liter for sale if anyone wants to go really fast
He is great contact as has been in the industry - also has a powercat with twin 750's(not for sale)
I promise I will take care of this beauty
I plan to put it on the caribbean - yes I know way too much for little boat -but what could go wrong!  Cool

mmm, I think you are on to something there Nigel, could be. I recon you may own every other remaining 1500XS (within Australia).

Those Jav's would suck to the surface like a sting ray to the sea bottom. No amount of trim or grunt will help them achieve a speed over 50mph. The reality is, the Jav's were a sporty looking mini barge which rode as if it had square wheels!!

As you well know, BB still hold the Australian record at over 87MPH with the same motor but with a far better hull.

I recall the max power for a Jav' was 100hp or may be 110hp. The only reason for this, was to able to haul out 3 x skiers on singles from a deep water start, certainly not outright speed of course!
