My Scout Dorado 185 was about 1900 lbs dry when I weighed it on race car scales, no fuel no people. That 2600 lbs sounds high for your boat unless it is fully loaded. My boat has a Honda 90. The 90...

That one says 700 nits in one place and 1000 nits in another. I'd be wary. The 1000 nit output is the same as most of the stuff I designed and put into production when I worked for Raymarine and...

I have one of the Racor snapp 2 micron filters on my Honda 90. I have had no problems with it whatsoever. Is it overkill? I don't know, it works great and it's the same price as a 10 micron.

I tried Libre Office when I bought my last computer to see if it as any good,and I ended up never buying or installing MS Word or Excel.

It's not perfect, but it is 1000% worth the price of free.
