I beleieve the system monitor shows fuel flow, what was it at wot? I am guessing 20gph per motor, or so?
Thanks!
This is night and day better than the 280's. The dock manners alone is worth the slight loss in speed. Yes the system monitor shows the fuel flow, but I had it set on water pressure during the run. Next time out I will check. I do know I ran from Cape Coral Yacht Club to Lovers Key, then to Cabbage Key and Back and only used a total of 40 gallons.

Merc did a great job with the design and development of these OptiMax motors.

In the last FMO run to Naples, I ran 174.8 miles, burned 74.7 gallons in total, that’s 2.34 MPG, and that was with the T/300XS.

Like you said, dock manners and quite.

Motors like these, put the fun back in boating.

So here is an update. The boat is ruuning great! So far the best I ran was 98.9 mph with 4 blade clevers (still playing around I think there are a few more in her). Now that the boat is running perfect I thought I would updated the rest of the boat. So here are a few pictures I took before before it started to rain yesterday. I installed new side pannels, dash pad, had the gauges redone from gaffrig to livorsi, 2 new subs and amps, seat belts, foot steps, new engine grpahics and then gave everthing a good cleaning.

Looks real clean...and the #'s are great as well.I could only get mine to 102-103 with the 300XS's on it...So for you to go 98 with 250's is great...

Great pictures. I have a 1990 Motion 25 and just picked up a pair of new 300xs. I would be interested in seeing more wiring pictures. My boat was last wired in the 1990's so I would like to get rid of a lot of the individual wire gauge wiring. I would also like to see things like trim pump mounting and trim actuator mounting. I need a pair of trim actuators, which mount to the mid. I don't understand why they cost so much.

What went smooth and what should I look out for.

thanks,

Beautiful rigging. Nice touch with the lap belts. In the interest of safety, thanks for thinking of your passengers.
