Are you thinking of buying one?? I have a had my pair for three years and have had good luck. If you are looking for a pair mine are for sale, counter rotating, 300 hours for $12k. If you just want questions answered PM me your phone number and I will give you the 411.

Custom Rigger..... you really need to spell check your posts! I have never seen anything like it....... "powerboat saleman". Take some time and make it right. I shudder at the thought of you filling out a purchase order.

Actually, I just bought a Kencraft 215 w/ a 225 Optimax (7 hours on motor) for 15 K. I can not get over the fuel economy and the power of this motor. I had heard of some minor problems such as fouling plugs, but have been assured that if I use the Optimax oil, those problems should be nil.
