Cape cod marine 26 cc or I guess it is now the 26 albin cape cod just did one up w/ the volvo dou w/ a 300 hp boat does 50 and burns just 6 gph. That is a great ride. Yanmar also has a 270 w/ a merc 3 and it's a great package. I just sold a cc w/ twin 200 hp yammies and if I were to buy another i would lean toward the i/o w/ a jack shaft moves the weight forward and you have the reliability of the new diesels.

Think about it Charlie 5 to 6 gph at 50 mph

I myself don't like outboards on brackets, they always get in the way when fighting fish, whereas an outboard hung on the transom it easier to fish over.

I believe outboard would sell better, but single diesel under the console would generate alot of interest as well. The most important design of a CC (when used for fishing) to me is that it is self bailing and that there are mascerators on the fish box drains. Good luck with your boats.

SeaVee offers OB and diesel versions of most, if not all of their boats.. their under 30'rs are rarely seen with diesels though. Their 34 with twin Yanmars is an awesome package, but the smaller sizes lke yours are really better off with OB's IMO...
