was it the 266 ltd?? a friend of mine had one with the merc 383 and a bravo 3 and it ran better than 48.. thing didnt like rough water, slammed and banged like mad..it looks like it has a vee, but definitly didnt ride like it. still a nice boat.

Do you have the carb. 4 stroke or the EFI engine?

My sister has a 2005 montauk with the carb 4 stroke and its in the shop every two months on the spot with fuel system problems. Mercury's answer: poor design, was corrected on the new EFI model. Purchase and EFI model.

the kicker, boston whaler has to hold up the warranty, not mercury, and whaler is being a pain in the azz.

I'm sorry i recommended boston whalers to her and her husband. Great boat, not great customer service. (unless you buy a bigger boat)

266 bow rider. 7.4MPI (310 HP) with a Bravo III and props worked by Bronson Hill. Hulls have hook built into them to keep 'em from porpoising and therefore they are not very fast. Most ran about 50 MPH with that setup. Mine was a bit slower for some reason. Mine did great in rough water. Ran it 2 seasons down at LOTO. They have 22 degrees of deadrise and are very sharp at the bow. Drop the tabs down a tad and trim at neutral and she would cut through most of the rough stuff within reason.

Yeah, I had heard that about the '05, but the '06 is an EFI (it is actually a Yamaha powerhead) and runs like a top! I love that little boat - it literally is gas-n-go and goes forever on a tank of gas.
