    the 300xs is the logical choice. Ease of maintenance, less weight, easier to work on, less moving parts.. what the hell, throw a third one on there. Building composite fishing and pleasure catamarans.

    Shore thing: why is that?

    I've only had a short time to experience 300XS, but they are amazing in terms of performance. I went out on a 28 skater with 2 300XS and they clogged up twice in 20 minutes with something, we had to stop and clear it out before the smart craft alarm would go off. Is that a common issue?
    it costs about the same as a 525, and a 29 will like the more hp. after running a motor for a few years .I ALWAYS WANTED MORE SPEED, so we would rebuild the motor bigger more power or replace it. you could get 600 to 650hp motor for less than the 525. like I said know people that had 525s and had motor problems and header problems and I had to mercs and wish I went custom instead for what I paid for them. good luck

    The motors stopping up was probably caused by bad ethanol fuel. Don't hold that against the outboards.
