Yam's always seam to work out more expensive. IMHO, and experience, Merc/Mariner and Yam are of equal standing in quality, reliability and resale value. I was always a Yam fan 'till this Opti i have now and i could think of no reason to spend more on a HPDI over an Opti.

no idea what prop will be on it,
every boat goes ona lake in cannock and is pitched to suit there and then . best way really,
the engine is fine for the money as Daniel says, more so by getting a 200hp for same cost as the 175hp, bit more weight i know. but will look snug on the back of there am sure,,
for a 6.5mtr boat it looks huge up close,, looks more 7.5mtr in the flesh, really is a nice looking vessel, been a wait,, but after touching it yesterday and looking her over, all the waiting and hassle has gone out the window and i am eager to get it on the water now.
Unfortunatley it will not be this weekend coming, out on a 4x4 off road trail. in mid wales, well gutted but its allready booked and paid for,, I can feel a sicky coming on from work...
Do you think they would notice my boat wasnt in storage @ work whilst i was of sick?
