Purely out of interest..... Does the difference in oil consumption between the two units correlate to the fuel consumption / what is oil consumption in both units?

I have heard (second hand) that some of the metalwork/fixings have had to be replaced after a very short period of engine use due to corrosion.

It would be interesting hear direct from a user if they have had any such problems.
No issues with corrosion. I believe the second hand info refers to a batch of side panel clips that they had problems with on very early versions.

Oil consumption seems better on the G2 however it's only just out of break in mode, so dont really know for sure yet.

Totally agree would be much better to base opinion on fact based on experience of actually owning and reading said book.

What's the fuel consumption of the 200 nearer 50 knots?

Will try and take a look next time I take it out, at 50 knots I was concentrating on the waves more than the gauges.

We have two brand new 7m boats being delivered this week with the 200 H.O. being used for power. Being used as a water taxi service for 12 passengers in a somewhat protected deep water bay as well as regular offshore scenic cruises in our area (google Sept-Îles, Québec, Canada and have a look at the archipelago of islands fronting our bay)

I'll post detailed pics as soon as the first boat arrives later this week once we bring her out for a few shakedown runs.

Really looking forward to seeing how this engine performs, will post detailed real world performance specs based on our operating standards as the next couple of weeks go by and allow us to head our in various sea states.

cheers
