I'm not sure about either of the above.
The HO gives approx 45 more hp for the same weight as a 250 and comes in leary stars and stripes.
I tossed-up between a DF and an Etec, the dealer, Ian at Liverpool Powerboats advised to go for the Etec. He sold both, so he was getting my dough either way.
The Etec out performs the DF in all depts other than noise at tickover.
