502 Mag to 525 EFI

Dear Bob:
I have a 2000 29 Fountain with a Mercuiser 502 Magnum that has been damaged by being frozen. I am getting ready to swap the motor and install a 2004 Mercury Racing 525EFI that I purchased which has been recently rebuilt. What concerns should I have with this motor swap? Is the wiring harness and mounting the same for both motors? Please provide me with any information you think would be helpful. Thanks!

That has a lot to do with the fact that her father—the legendary Bob Teague, who established Teague Custom Marine in 1972—has been a regular attendee and sponsor of the popular event since it started as the HeatWave Poker Run in 1999.

Dear Bob:
Can you explain the correct procedure for setting the alignment of the drives on a twin-engine boat? I would think that if it is not in correct alignment, you could be scrubbing off speed. On a car, there is a certain amount of toe-in, when the car starts moving, that position likely will change slightly. Is a boat the same? Does the procedure change with regard to the direction the props are turning?
