What I should have said that the opti is far more efficient below 4500rpm.

Rogue, spot on with the twin 175s. They'll be nice and light as they are essentially a tuned up 135. Roll on the end of the month.

pmorgan, what 8m are you looking at?

Hi swginn
The problem I had was with the water pump impeller the drive shaft separated from the impeller part giving me a cooling problem. The part was only a month old so I am assuming it was a manufacturing fault. I believe that the design might have been changed on later / larger models ours is a 1999 model. Have fun with your new toy !

Thanks all for your excellent feed back

There is someone on these forums who has an 8m scorp with a 225 honda 4/s
I cant think who it is but it must be worth talking to him.

Thanks simmons0, I met him on course the other weekend, talking to him has made me decide to try and get the RIB this seasion and not wait till next ! He is happy with his Honda - but I am still in the 2 stroke camp at present!
