    Default Recommendations or Opinions on changing Volvo 170 AQ Engins

    I have a 27ft. Bayliner Victoria, the boat is in great shape but the engines need work. I am thinking about replacing the Volvo 170AQ engines with 1 Chev Marine engine and a single Volvo 280 out drive. I Would appreciate any advice I can get.
    I am prety capable of doing most of the work my self.

    Thanks Ernie.

    Sounds to me like all your doing is changing from old twin packages to a single old package. Your boat go nowhere near as good with the single as it does with twins. Those 280 drives are pretty old style if anything i'd look for a 290 duoprop package to put in.
