I really don't understand why you put a 2-stroke racing engine on a leisure rib...??

Racing engines tend to be lighter - especially as it's a 2 stroke. They don't use any more fuel than an equivelent 4 stroke at WOT....

I am trying to decide between the Mercury 300xs and the suzuki 300 4 stroke for next year. Yamaha v8 is too heavy - if only evinrude would bring out a 300 or more ETEC!!!

have to agree with you, my last few boats have all had merc race engines...ask yourself while bouncing over the waves...would you sooner have a weaker pleasure version or a stronger race version?
