I am not a fan of the 2 stroke Suzuki that goes from 4 cyliners at idle to 6 when running- sounds like crap at the docks and hard to handle...
The HPDI Yammies don't run on 6 cyl's at idle either... you can't feel the difference. They also have an oxegen sensor in one of the cylinders.

Someone mentioned Yamaha and Ford.. I remember when Yamaha built the Ford SHO motor.

Are there any issues with Verado lower units ? Any long term problems with the whole package ?

Just out of curiosity, what's the story behind more duct tape and less nail polish ? Apache because your woman likes it rough ??

actually I and my passengers really like the quiet running Verado's. I've had my 275's for over 2 years now and have been owning outboard powered boats since 2003 and I really do not miss all the noise and hassle with I/O's

It would be great to have a boat like yours. Just dont have the room.
