Too beamy to go off shore? So you are saying every boat made shouldn't be wider than 8'6"? Wider boats ride well and definitely drift better if you are going to be sitting at all or on the drift. My...

All they have to do is stick more power on the back and call it a day. No certification process. It's on them to determine how much HP their transom can handle.

I'm guessing the 250's are on the Southport? Did you repower or the original from 2007? Without all the info it's stirring up what may be nothing on 12 year old outboards.

This isn't 100% true. However, they probably did work with Yamaha to determine the best set-up. I've talked to a few boat dealerships that allow any of the outboards to be rigged and they said that...

He may mean having to run a higher RPM for the same speed. Mucked up fuel injectors will do that.

If you invite someone along and they offer to give you money you are fine. If you ask them to come along and ask for money to cover expenses you are not. That's pretty clear cut.
