"Reel Rookie" has a documented history of good preventive maintenance .  Powered by Twin Cummins VTA 903's rated at 450 hp each which provide an effortless comfortable cruise of 20 knots @ 2200 rpm.   Turning 3-Blade Nibral Props on upgraded 2" shafts.   The current owner reports engine hours of 2,500 based on logs .   These 'Bulletproof' engines were designed to be much more fuel efficient than Detroits and have a reputation of running 6,000 hours before a rebuild .  These 903 cubic inch motors were the same the Government used for the M2/M3 Bradley Fighting Vehicles.   Since so many of these engines are still running strong, the parts network will be available for a long time.
