What problems(if any) have you had with the motors? My Dad has the same motor, same year too, on his boat and has blown a few parts.

Yes, stock oil system. I thought 50:1 was about average for the 300XS?

Frank, you are living the dream. You have my favorite boat, powertrain (300xs) and seem to live in a beautiful spot. I am repowering my 25 Talon from modded 300hp 260s' to twin 225 promaxes for hopefully better reliability and fuel consumption. Hope our paths cross sometime. I'm thinking about the Jacksonville poker run. Maybe I'll see you there. Bob

UNDER WARRANTY, I purchased the 3rd year:
I blew a power head when the boat was 3 weeks old. Melted #5 piston, and ventilated the block with the rod.

had 2 props fail

developed cracks on the lower units, an have gone through 6 lowers, in the first 2 years

burned up 1 coil, which set fire to the ignition system harness, at 2 years 2 months

AFTER WARRANTY:
replaced 1 electrical plate solenoid, at 3 years 3 months
replaced 1 alternator that failed, at 3 years 4 months


tried about a dozen sets of props, before I found the best ones for my boat.
Throttle-Up, CNC 4 blade, over hub cleavers 14.75 x 31, they have never failed!

My last runs was:

114 miles
61.9 gallons of fuel used
3.1 gallons of oil used

So I come up with 0.05008077544426494345718901453958 to 1 so you were close...
