I DONT CARE HOW MUCH PETROL COSTS, because nothing is going to stop me using my rib.............Dirk
I want to go diesel as 1 its cheeper and 2 its availiable everywhere
Alan... I thought that Yamaha did a 280hp stern drive also, but it wasnt sold in europe or the US. I found a web site about a year ago with about 6 yamaha stern drive options inc 280hp, I think it was some where in Dubi or somewhere in that region, but for the life of me I cant find it again....
Volvo.... I had very expencive experance with them.....all there parts are odd and even the bearings are not standard, or the rings, nothing is, so you are stuck with expencive parts..... even the enjectors and pumps are one offs......ouch, including the lift pump diafram, i think I paid about £30 for one of these, instead of £6-7......... so you can keep volvo
At least the yamaha is a Land Cruiser motors with some bolt on goodies. and you will find yanmar in a lot of other things too, Diggers, dumpers , genies etc
NOT THE SHARPEST KNIFE IN THE DRAWER
