Will be interesting to see what the proper fuel economy will be - please keep us posted!!!
Its interesting to hear your views on that, they appear to match those of Barrus, its my understanding that they will not be importing the 275's anymore, only the 250's then straight to the 300's.

Will post more numbers when I have them over a longer cruise.

Very nice mate, personally I think they look better than the 275hp, looking forward to mine even more now.
