A few photo's of the Outboard. Its a 150 DI XL shaft and comes with a Viper (apt name) 14.75" X 21" prop.

I've never heard of a Viper before, they any good?

Andy,

Engine looks real nice. You don't see many Evinrudes in black. Is that a special edition ?

Nick.

PS. Enjoy learning tomorrow !!

It doesn't look particularly special to me, but it doesn't look particularly black to me either

Looks black on my PC. Is it the Evinrude E Tec Dark Blue ?

Its my daughters PC actually. If she knows its showing colours all wrong she'll be asking for a new monitor. Best I don't tell her.

Out of interest, did Powertec position the engine off-centre on the transom? and if so, did they remember its a left hooker as your previous post?

I'm asking as I often wonder about the reality of needing to off-set by an inch or so, and some builders don't off-set the engines.

When I put the Suzi on my boat I off-set it by an inch, and then adjusted the trim tab to get it to run straight and flat. I did wonder if I could have got the adjustment just with the trim tab.

Andy,
Mine has a Viper prop, seems OK (but I'm no expert). But had to get a bigger one, also a viper, hoping for some improvements!
You're still welcome to that ride if you wanna try it.

Nick, it's a dark metallic blue colour and just a bolt standard spec one in XL shaft and CCR guise.

It certainly looks the Biz, so I hope it's the right pitch.
