Biggest concern is getting up on plane but from what I have read the right prop and hydrafoils will eliminate that concern.

As much as I would love to hit blue water I do not see that with this boat and hopefully my job takes me to South Carolina coast in 2 years.

Keep the opinions coming please. And I am going with Suzuki
Suzuki 300 still have issues.
I have been researching to upgrade my twin 250 suzuki's to twin 300. as the extra power will allow me to get a better burn number due to slower rpm for the same speed.
But seems that ALL the 300 out there of most brands are still having issues. seems the engines of 250 and less are ALOT more reliable right now

I think the 250hp/225/200 growth was a good slow evolution. But we all know the new stuff need to "work the bugs out of it".

It's almost always like that. Right out of the blueprint, then have problems only use can find and re-design can correct.

Each manufacturer finds new stuff they need to correct.

Ran to the far end of the Chicken last season on my 25 center with twin 135s. just as we arrived I blew a lower unit. It took 7 1/2 hours to get back, but I did get back without assistance. My feelings...Twins is the safest bet. Now I have twin 175s. good luck with your decision
