It is a fairly heavy hull - but only an aluminum top above the deck.

She worked the next 25 years as a live-in care giver in the Lewiston, Clarkston, Moscow, Pullman and Colfax area. Jessie then travelled throughout the United States and Canada, especially in Alaska.Rated: I bought a 1984 Mako 285 hull,without motors.27' LOA, 10'beam.It needs the transom replaced and I am thinking of putting a single big block Mercruiser engine in - 310 hp, with Bravo 3 drive, instead of the twin 200 - 250 hp outboards that used to be on it.The reason that the US has the same sign design as specified by the Convention is that the Convention adopted the US standard.In a majority of European countries including France, Spain and Italy, junctions without traffic lights or roundabouts are controlled by stop signs on minor roads and by white, yellow and black priority diamond signs on the major road.
The Convention allows for the word "STOP" to be in either English or the national language of the particular country.
Regardless of which is right, that motor will not push it to 30 knots cruise unless if you want to run it wide open or close to it, which is not advisable.
However, this is not to say that you should not go with the 454 - I think it is a good idea - only that your expectation should be downgraded a bit.
