Repower but with 120 hp mercruisers?

Post by Tricabin73 » Tue Apr 22, 2014 11:00 pm

I have a 73 tricabin it currently has beat 360s. And I do have a strong pair of 454s I was going to repower with next year ( this years project were the decks)

So anyways. Where I boat it's mostly no wake out to the hang out beach. I'm probably never gonna go too far. So I was wondering it I put a pair of 120s. Could I prop it out to get 10 mph at 3000rpm and have maneuverability? I'm not look for planing or speed.

What you guys think? I'd like a day on the boat that doesn't kill the wallet
