Does anybody make a CC with I/O's? I love the configuration of my Cig 28OS with all the open space in it. I'd like something like the 36 Concept with a pair of HP525's and XR's so you could get some real speed out of it. Anyone else like a boat like that?

I have heard some good things about these E-Tecs
No break in period
3 yrs without service
Better performance than 4 strokes:
Fuel consumption from idle to WOT
Low emissions
Quicker acceleration
Less wt. (120 lbs less)
7 year warranty
Lower $

Does anybody have first hand experience with these Motors ?

Rocco-
I work for BRP, on the E-Tec program... I do dealer training and consumer demos, etc..... So yeah, I have some experience I am happy to share.
PM me your address and I'll mail you a copy of the infomercial on DVD...

I have always been a Merc man... Until I got involved with BRP. They really have a winner with the E-Tec. It really is everything you said..

That Fountain is being rigged by Billy's OB in N. Miami. I have no idea how he got the boat without mercs... The boat has a Sundance Marine decal on it... The guys hanging the motors said that the boat never had engines on it.... Strange, I know...
I'll have to ask Billy how it ran.

I don't wnat to get into it too deep here, as BRP isn't an official sponsor of OSO...


Back to the boat thing..
I saw a pile of new Concepts at the PB show.. Great looking, and great interiors. Luis keeps kicking it up a notch...
If your good...I'll click some pics tomorrow.

The old guy in the pic is dumping his other brand motors for a set of E-Tecs.. Run 'em, you'll be sold.

92 Octane isn't mandatory....it;ll run fine on 87/89, however it won't make full 275hp...engine management will sense and compensate;at least that is how it was told to me.

A nice feature if you do any fishing would be to have scuppers installed so the fish junk can be washed out the back of the boat and not end up in the bilge stinking up the boat or clogging up the pumps. Also nice to get that water out of the cockpit if you get into any real rough water.

Go on to boattrader.com or nwoffshore.com and look at the 36's that Don Holtz has for sale. They are some very good looking boats. I have seen that Concept will do what ever you need for fun or fish. I talked to them in Miami, great company.

I hope Evinrude has their sh-t together with the E-TEC because the last fiasco (Ficht) put them in bankruptcy.
They rushed the Ficht tech. to the market place without testing and outsourced alot of the components to low cost vendors.
I am not completely sold on 4 strokes ! I truly believe this tech. is being force fed to anyone who will listen. These things are huge and wt. over 100+ lbs. with a ton of moving parts (4valve heads,timing belts, superchargers etc.) !!
I hope it works out for Evinrude comp. is good, remember the Mid. to late 80's when Merc. and OMC where battling it out on the race course?
Evinrude will have a tuff time infiltrating the control Merc. has on boat builders. Brunswick already owns a large % of them. The others are to fearful to cross them.

Last one.
Concept turns it up a notch every year... Great boats.
FYI- They're in the process of getting involved with Evinrude power...

Four strokes won't go away, but the four stroke mentality will change... BRP is just getting out there with E-tec, so it'll take a bit to soak in....but take a look at thir place in the market in '06....

Rocco- I got your PM..
