200 hp optimax

i have a 6.5 ribcraft which was fitted with a 200hp merc carb 2 stroke which did 1 mile to the galon a good day
just changed to a 200 hp optimax which is mind blowing controlable.

4miles to gal at 3500 rpm 30mph

speed to 50mph it could have gone quicker but the sea was a little chopy
oil does not seem to have moved
the low spead trol is amazing 1-3 mph
response is ausome out performed a friend with a simular rib 200hp 4 stroke
the down side will be the 2 stoke oil costs
