Did that used to be a 50hp advantage

Looking back over some of Roy's old posts on here there are multiple references to him wanting a 7.5 with the then-new 300 etec on the back, but I don't know if it ever came to fruition? He's mentioned to me that he's probably going to go for a 7m but with a less powerful engine and probably in Caraibe or ibiza

He did mention that he was rather 'underwhelmed' by the HO and would go for a straight Etec next time.

Maybe, but he put an HO on this one, which is a 3.4 litre block and therefore is more .1 of a litre bigger than yours boyo

He may be underwhelmed compared to the 250 because it is so much more expensive for not much power gain, but I've let him take that hit, and I 've now got a boat with a 250HO (which is, undoubtable more powerful than a straight 250)

Does your Dad know that your spouting bollox on a grown-up's forum again?!

Now, be a good lad and don't put him in a position where he has to start sending off apologetic emails again.


Go and ask Matron for a nice cup of Coco and ask her to tuck you into bed as it's getting late.

Gotchiguy. As much as I am happy for you now that your dad has got his new boat you really need to learn some humility.

I know you are young and excited about your new boat but all that will end up happening is that the wealth of experienced people on this forum that could prove to be a great resource for you will just start to get bored with you and you won't get any help.

You certainly passed that point with me a few pages back.

Good Luck
