Default unsubstatiated rumor....

The kind I love!!! - more than one source I hear from is telling me that the new Verado 300 is upwards of 320 hp and will walk away from anything else out there in a 4 stroke...(first letter is Z...) we'll know in a month or so - it's gonna be an interesting summer!

"Z" I'm not familiar with any outboard brands that start with 'Z'.....

This will be really important to people who have the "My boat will be faster than your boat" mentality.

At what fuel burn rate? Those Verados suck down fuel at an alarming rate compared to all the other 4 strokes once you get above 4800-5000 RPM. Based upon test reports the Suzuki 300 does not have the same sort of ugly fuel economy curve at hign RPMs that the Verados suffer from.

Funny, that's exactly what I thought, "Who freakin' cares?"

Of course I'm driving a cat that cruises at 25 konts. The only thing I walk away from are kayaks

How far is is the high horsepower outboard thing going to go,600hp, 10 feet tall and 3000lbs?
They are obviously making these things for the larger boats,but the larger boats look foolish with 4 of these things on the back.Also how often do you really get to use all this power?I dunno,just my opinion.

Wait until the 400 HP V-6 650 LBS E-Tec comes out. Then you're all in trouble.

One 300 would have to be better than twin 150s. IMO. Especially if it has tons of low end grunt.

Instead of all the motor dealers making a motor with more horsepower they can look into a powerhead that will last a season. haha Just stirring the pot here guys! could not pass it up!

I love it. There's nothing like unbridled competition to improve the breed. If the Japanese had not taken the market away from Detriot, we'd all still be driving cars with drum brakes and carburetors brought to us by car companies who still do things like the Aztec.

Look at the engines for the offsore boats. You can buy things that make 1200 horsepower and have a one year warranty. Why? Competition, plain and simple.

Hmmm. Trying to add a jpeg, but cannot find the "add a picture after the post" box to check. Can we not add a picture to our posts anymore, or am I missing something?
