    Question Poll 300xs vs 350sci

    I know 90% what I am putting on the back of the 36. But would like to here some input from other Concept owners if they had a choice, what would you do?

    Tripple 300xs or Twin 350sci ? And why ?

    Twin 300xs would be my choice...
    I just couldn't justify $48k for the two 350sci and weight.
    Save $18k and go with the proven 300xs

    The price is about the same for each setup, I would be going with 3 300xs vs 2 350 verados. So it will coast the same money.I was just thiking speed, handling of boat,and resale.

    300XS for you and 350V for resale

    4 strokes are the future and trip boats don't fare do well on re-sale.

    That being said- resale sucks on most boats and trips rock so go with trip 300XS's! You can get an additional 2 year warranty on the XS's from Merc Racing these days as well.

    350V is a Merc Racing product as well so if going that route opt for the 300's for the 5 year warranty. 100lbs more for 150HP is nice but 2 extra years of nothing to worry about is nicer.

    IMHO Yes I would. At 75 there should be NO room for steering issues..period.

    Triples seem to be a lot of weight and 350's seem to be a lot of money. Twin 300V is the way I would go. Just my .02
