wieght is a good point.. the other thing a person has too look at is the amount of hours that can be put on a two-stoke or four-stoke O\B and than fuel burn..

suzuki is coming out at the Fort Lauderdale show with a 250 four stoke at is a true 250hp at the prop unlike some other motors that are 225 at the fly wheel.. and are in question about those numbers too... i've heard that it might be closer to 180hp to the prop...

one last thing about the suzuki is that it comes with a three warrenty out of the box unlimited hours.. for pleasure use only...and the last i knew most go fast motors big blocks come with the standard warrenty of YOU OWN IT YOU FIX IT.. LOL

Really, Huge??? Really (In my Cousin Eddie voice from Christmas Vacation).


Mike, Again, that is one pretty boat. And i'm still jealous. I'll trade you a 95 mph Extreme for it.........Dave
