  • 236 with a big block

    Hey everybody,

    Just curious to know if anyone has put a high performance big block in their 236 and what the performance has been. I currently have an 86 236 with a 2005 350 fuel injected engine with a 1775 prop and am not really that impressed with the performance. Granted I own a 19 ft MasterCraft with a 454 425 HP bowtie bigblock so that might have something to do with it. Thoughts and ideas??

    Had the same boat with same power and it won't win any races, but feels capable and rides nice.

    If I was to ever own my "ideal" 236 it would not be gas, it would be diesel and sport a Cummins 370 QSB and have a full transom platform, larger rudder and transom walk thought door. Loved the boat, but an outboard makes more sense for me at this point.
