It is lighter than twins and it is rated for 2x250 or 300s. I was hoping for about 65 - 70mph - it is quite a heavy boat.

Isn't your boat similar or based on a Revenger. I had the twin 225 on the San Marino which is a 25 foot hull felt there was to much weight on the stern. weight 450 kg. A 300 merc should push mine to 63 ish so i guess 350hp @ 310kg pushing about 70 mph. Could be the engine to bring life back to the San marino

Yes it's a Revenger hull clone but with quite a bit more beam and a fuller bow section - fortunately all this is out of the water so the wetted area is the same but the weight isn't. I also have 500L of internal tanks!!!

Was having a chat with Gordon McMath (revenger) the other day and I had thought the Verado 350 would be the engine to have also

"This motor will require 91-octane fuel. "

Does this mean 95/96 RON in the UK?
And is this available?

It will run on regular unleaded in the UK just like the other Verados
