F.Bill probably didn't expect this to be a real site where people actively reply and try to help.

Gaz, you should have told him about your 110HP motor on your X. :wink:


When you have that much power you can stop counting.
What's +/- 5HP among friends?

Condition is the big one.....and hours/condition of the outboard. Beyond that, a big factor is what equipment comes with the boat. Is it working? Is it what you want/need? Is it almost out of date? Is it wired or connected in a silly/dangerous/sloppy manner? I did not change a thing on my :macm: for a year, and am very glad I did not. I have taken much more out of the boat than into it.

Just my 2 cents...
Good advice. If the electric and electronic part is not well done, it can turn into a nightmare.

Yeah, bottom line - the M boat is better.
