When we go up fishing this June I think we'll run over and check out Potts Lagoon, which is nearby. I've read about but never seen it.

Marin, I think you'll really enjoy Potts Lagoon. It is so isolated that you feel like you're on another planet. Beautiful.

(Unless others happen to be there at the same time.)

Well Marin you must be right on this one as they have been calling them scream'in Jimmie's as far back as 1955. But there's very little wrong w my ears and the boat next to me w the 6-53 must be well sound insulated. I'll bet the dry stack helps and if a lift muffler were to be employed I'm sure that would make a huge difference but the Detroit's may be back pressure sensitive. Earlier someone said the DDs are only noisy at high load and rpm. I almost bought a 36' boat this winter w a 4-53. I still dream about that boat. Engine service room was very bad and I was concerned about fuel consumption. Sounds like they respond well to underloading though.
