A year has passed since Yamaha announced their departure from the inboard/outdrive market. Yanmar and Volvo seem well positioned to fill the gap. I've had a bit of time on the 6 cylinder Yanmar 315, managed to horse a Yanmar ZT-350 outdrive and failed to do the same with the ZT-370, so some experience there, however:
Any new thoughts on good power to weight ratio combos from these or other manufacturers?
Anyone had experience with the new Yanmar 320/370hp 8LV
? It looks good on paper, but then, they all do - Nice test video below.
I see a couple of small Hyundai Seasall (sounds like a penetrating lubricant) in Redbay Boat's shed. I think they plan to try them on smallish RIBs with a Yanmar leg perhaps? I've never heard of them around here before - any takers for comment?
