I had same hull years ago (Shetland 1900 SS) with Mercury 200EFI and after last weekend the boat is a lot more fun with the Verado, especially when the supercharger came in.... gave an extreme kick...

I am sure it will be a very good RIB hull

Verado is a piece of kit and worth every penny as play machine

Maybe a stupid question but...

275 verado has 1,85:1
300 verado has 1,75:1

Have at the moment Trophy prop 14X21, also got Bravo I 26 pitch, then several Laser II props, will soon try Vensure prop.

The 300 ECM is not yet available in Europe.
