7M performance. I/O is better than OB?
I took a look at a brokered boat for sale today and the broker made the claim that the performance of your standard diesel I/O is far superior to an OB setup. He stated that this was because of where all the weight was located in your IO, and when you take a tight turn with an OB your stern tends to slide out from underneath you, or something like that.
I didn't want to debate this with him, since I have no clue, but I know that there are a fair number of people on this site that have the OB setup.
