I have the F250XB as well. I’m propped to hit the limiter at 6,100 RPM with my lightest load. I’m not sure if the computer log registers time above the limit if you’re ever able to overrev simply...

If you’re okay with mechanical controls instead of fly by wire, consider the Yamaha 250 SHO. Same HP and torque as the F300.

It kind of reminds me of the old MASH episode where Trapper gets a tailor made pinstripe suit, but the pinstripes are horizontal.

But when it works, it’s amazingly accurate. Reads a little high running into the tide and low running with it.

Make sure the $4k price difference isn’t because you were comparing a mechanical 150 to a fly by wire 200. You can get a mechanical F200 and I don’t think it’s a $4k upcharge from the 150, but I...

Like just about everything, it depends on the individual. Both installations work fine, but one requires you to drill holes in the back of your boat and the other requires you to buy a $200 mounting...

Yes, everyone is paying MSRP. And it’s not always easy to find one these days. It’s not a difficult do-it-yourself installation process. $500-600 for a paid installer seems a little excessive,...

Alloyboy is quite correct, I was just trying to list the easily observable differences between them that, in my opinion, influence most of us when making a buying decision. Power, operating economy,...

The VF 250 is the SHO. I’m told that it’s a mechanical shift F300 in all aspects except the cowling. It also comes in 20” or 25” shaft lengths. The VF250XA is the 25” shaft version. So the difference...

After the second set of marine speakers, I finally got a UE Megaboom. Sounds great and it’s waterproof. And I can use it at the pool, the beach, washing the car, in the house, or wherever.

Returning to the first question the OP asked, there really isn’t much difference between the Pro and the Sporstman model PowerPoles. The Sportsman is a couple of hundred dollars cheaper, only comes...

It’s my first wrap, so I can’t say first hand what kind of protection a wrap gives the gel coat, but the wrap is protecting the fiberglas below from the sun. I expect my hull will look just like it...

The Yamaha F250XB and the 250SHO are both mechanical control motors. If you want the additional HP, those should be options the dealer gives you without having to worry about an upcharge for changing...

Leave it up, but tie it off to the support pilings on either side to keep it from swaying. That’s what I’ll do with the boat on the lift and I’d do the same if the lift were empty.

I have a two year old F250XB on my 23 foot bay boat. I very occasionally buy 93 octane ethanol free gas, but use 87 octane e-gas from the local gas station with a bit of Startron almost exclusively....

Boat Lift Bunk Length

Finally have a home with a boat lift and want to replace the old wooden bunks with aluminum. Will 12’ bunks be sufficient for my 23’ Bay boat?

10-15 pound braid for inshore fishing. I typically stick with 15. I’ve never used anything but PowerPro or Spiderwire, but I’m sure there are others who prefer other brands. You’ll want a 20-30 pound...
