    A single Volvo diesel stern drive. Currently, the D6 is avail. at 330 and 370 HP ratings as a stern drive. I have an insider who told me a 400 HP is to be avail. soon. So I'm planning on a D6-400 DPR.

    Good eye! I have a few minor repairs to clean up on the bottom, you noticed one of them. Overall, the hull, especially the bottom, is very true. I will likely cut back the lift strakes a few feet, or to a point where they are balanced.

    Hi. I am interested in the Bandito. I am trying to view your photos. But there is a red x that appears on the photo to bring up the photo. Can you help me.
    Thanks Frank Miller
