Something doesn't make sense -- If the 350 and 400 run the same ratio (1.75:1), same gear case housing (5.44") and running the same props (assuming they ran the 20-21-20 set up on the 400 like the...

135HO. Bigger is better. Same cruise speed will happen at lower RPM and lower RPM means a quieter cruise.

Edgewaters are well built. But the boat is 21 years old so I would factor into the price a fuel tank replacement.
