E-tec G2 200HO Initial Feedback and Results

Seeing as we have one on the back of our 6.8 demo boat, I though it would be useful to post up some stats for anyone looking to repower or buy one with a new RIB...

We have an XL shaft 200HO on the back of a 6.8 meter Vipermax. The Vipermax is running a fairly standard layout with Jockey Seats and no back bench seat.

The 6.8 is rated for 200HP and we often supply these with 150 or 175 E-tecs which will happily achieve 40 knots with a full tank of fuel and 4 people on board. Fuel consumption with a 150 E-tec would be around 1 litre per Nautical Mile at cruising speeds.

So a comparison.... both boats were 1 man on board, half tank of fuel speeds measured on slack water in both directions then averaged:

E-tec 150HP

Weight - 196KG
Anti Vent Plate Height above transom - 2"
Prop - Viper 19"
WOT Speed Trimmed out - 43 knots.
WOT RPM Trimmed out - 5600
Fuel Consumption at 30 knots - average 32 litres an hour
Fuel Consumption at 40 knots - average 55 litres an hour


E-tec G-2 200HO:

Weight 244KGs
Anti Vent Plate Height above transom - 5"
Prop - RX4 20"
WOT Speed - Trimmed out - 50.5 knots
WOT RPM - Trimmed out 5400
Fuel Consumption at 30 knots - average 26 litres per hour
Fuel Consumption at 40 knots - average 37 litres per hour

When we rigged the engine we had some concerns about the additional 50KGs hanging off the back, however the performance is outstanding and the 6.8 manages the extra weight with no discernible impact on handling. I still cant quite believe how little fuel it uses!

The DPS power steering is excellent and you can set the amount of help it provides via the 4.3" touchscreen that is now shipped instead of gauges.

There is still some fine tuning to be done and we are going to test a few other props. However the Evinrude RX4 prop is amazing, and even with the engine set so high on the transom it still grips and pulls away without any fuss even if trimmed out to 50%.

Yes, I'm just saying I'd far rather be sat on the Ullman and nailing the throttle to the stop.

(And that the new Etec looks far better when viewed from the helm seat. An outboard cover with the 'Evinrude' the right way up would improve it immensely. I quite like the shape of it, but those graphics are pants.)

Have you had any problems regarding corrosion?

I have heard (second hand) that some of the metalwork/fixings have had to be replaced after a very short period of engine use due to corrosion.

It would be interesting hear direct from a user if they have had any such problems.

Purely out of interest..... Does the difference in oil consumption between the two units correlate to the fuel consumption / what is oil consumption in both units?

No issues with corrosion. I believe the second hand info refers to a batch of side panel clips that they had problems with on very early versions.

Oil consumption seems better on the G2 however it's only just out of break in mode, so dont really know for sure yet.

Totally agree would be much better to base opinion on fact based on experience of actually owning and reading said book.

What's the fuel consumption of the 200 nearer 50 knots?

Will try and take a look next time I take it out, at 50 knots I was concentrating on the waves more than the gauges.

We have two brand new 7m boats being delivered this week with the 200 H.O. being used for power. Being used as a water taxi service for 12 passengers in a somewhat protected deep water bay as well as regular offshore scenic cruises in our area (google Sept-Îles, Québec, Canada and have a look at the archipelago of islands fronting our bay)

I'll post detailed pics as soon as the first boat arrives later this week once we bring her out for a few shakedown runs.

Really looking forward to seeing how this engine performs, will post detailed real world performance specs based on our operating standards as the next couple of weeks go by and allow us to head our in various sea states.

cheers
