IMO.....RUN

You are looking to become very good friends with Mr. Big Bill

I was not interested in speed, just making sure the engine made WOT RPM which it does around 5900 RPM lightly loaded. Fully loaded, I still get 5500 RPM.

Hope this helps

Keeping the boat in saltwater?......Pass

Otherwise, your future will include large wallet draining events. That is a complicated and expensive engine/drive combo to be pickling in saltwater.

I'll be painfully honest. If you are in Florida avoid Wine-N-Cheese type boats with I/Os and lots of upholstery/carpeting. They look good for a while and SWMBOs love them, but when sun and salt get...

I had a '98 200hp 'Rude that had a similar problem. The ignition wiring harness went bad. New BRP one cured it, about $900 installed.

Good luck!
