I had planes for a revenger 29 but i remember my visit to scorpion -98 and after that i have problem to see another brand (new). I saw you asked about sparks on the e-tec some time agoe. How much oil did it drink? 1,5% average...?
Scorpion have a 8,75(demo) with twin optimax 225 at 75 000Ģ... Do you know if itīs the same hull but longer in a 8,75? Im interrested on the 8,1 or a 8,5...
Hi Joakim (?)
Very pleased with power to weight ratio on new boat. The only thing I'd trade up to would be a 10m+ scorpion with twin engines.
The E-tec is a lovely engine. It's sipping the oil, it's quiet, got loads of torque. Very impressive.
My feeling on these heavier 4 strokes is that you're not getting a huge more pull.
The 8.75 would be a great buy, but I'd be worried about the costs of running twin Optis, and I'm not a great fan of Optis after my last blew up on me.
Suzi 300 is a great engine though, and I'd certainly consider it next time round.
