I owned 250efi's on my last boat and WOW the oil burn was extremely high. Also the counter roatating engine will go through some drives as this was a know prob at Merc. the efi's smoke and stink like heck and if you put 4 of them on you better find a place to store around 30-40+ gallons absolute min. (no exageration) of oil.

Lightbulb 37 Midnight

Did you get the boat from Byng? Whether you did or didn't, ask him all about engine centers, installed heights, etc., on whatever engines your going with. He owns Marine Machine AND owned Midnight. If anyone would know, he would. www.MarineMachine.com If you need his cell number, let me know.

Thanks, ED I bought the hull from last owner of Midnight Express Inc. . I have spoken with Bing in the past, and could not recall specs.

This hull has a pad @ transom and will be laid up a lot lighter than the old. (It is being built for me.)

Picts to come soon!!!

250XS, best OB motor I've ever owned...300's probably just as good.
