Well don't hold out, who did you run with? In past experience, the captains local to Tampa are great guys. There are a few jerks and know it alls, but lots of flourishing captains that kept their...

Thats a nice improvement! Does she come out of the hole any better? When you update, take the same transom picture.

Most people are missing that this is a 30" motor. If you look at one of the last pictures posted by the OP, you can see it has a spacer. A 21 Cape Horn is a 25" transom from older 90's hulls, all the...

It's really hard to grasp the scope of work from the OP's post. If it's a straight forward repower, a week may be fair. If the boat is new, the challenges can be massively open ended even more so...

Have to be honest. in the principle camp, I'd say call the sellers bluff. You actually are insured, and if the sale falls apart, you owe no fees to ebay. So essentially it's worth around $300 extra...

That certainly speaks to how strong that motor is. And that Enertia is right in it's element. Sincer Mercury builds it in a 17p, that would likely be a great fit for you

Only this guy would be so honest as to give an answer other than his own. Central does seem to get a good bit of business and do it competitively on the West Coast, if the drive is the same for you,...

You have quite the boat line up for a brand new member! Also, that 27 Onslow is a fantastic boat. Anyhow, I've heard of one other such problem, but here with the v8's I've run, have not had the...

I agree here as well. The bunks should run all the way to the rear of the boat as the transom is the primary load bearing structure... That being said, is the boat is balanced, I don't mind bunks...

My vote goes in for the 228. If for no other reason than the fact that their reputation is far better. Plus I've been on the boat, and solid for it's price point.

If you're looking at a Verado boat already, it makes sense to go with new or used 300 Verado's. Depending on the age, Yamaha rigging won't help you, and it won't be a Suzuki boat on most of these...
