I think I remember seeing a 60k tag on one at the dealer when they came out, which would have made them quite a bit more than trip 300's at the time. Neglecting joystick, is the pricing still that...

Unless you live in Palm Beach and run 3 miles to fish, there is no way I would put twin 300's on that boat. Your slow cruise would be 4000+RPM light. Loaded for an 80 mile offshore trip in real...

I assume the trips are bit less money? The 425's are largely unproven.

I have trip F300's. Great package. This is my second set with over 1000 hours and I've had great luck with them. That boat...

I say the owner of the dog pays it all. Their friends did a crappy job taking care of the dog, but were just trying to help them out. Mistakes are made every day.

It's actually more than $400/100hours if you have everything done. In most places, that would not even cover the oil and filter changes. Say for the first 1000 hours, you should add thermostats,...

I fished two days offshore on what is probably the baddest offshore cat out there (F-42LR), and IMO, nice boat, but I did not come away wanting one. IMO, they do not live up to the hype-at all.

Anyone have the lowdown on changing the Yamaha SDS damper?

Note I'm not talking about the old style press in rubber hub, but the SDS version with ridges that key into slots on the hub. Yamaha is calling it a "damper" and charging 160/each for them.
