    Thinking of going from a 150 to a 250 Yamaha

    If you have the SPS standard, then your max rating should be 200HP. If you have the SPS Plus, then your max rating should be 250HP. It will be listed on your capacity label near the helm. Those are scammers - there is a huge network of websites that are run by these same unscrupulous...

    Thinking of going from a 150 to a 250 Yamaha

    Is your 24SSRX a tritoon with three round 25" pontoons?

    Yamaha 90 VMAX SHO vs. 'Standard' 90

    K is Yamaha's designation for medium/intermediate size props, if I recall correctly.

    Looking for my first 'New to Me' Benny - Performance Question

    Strictly depends on the dealer. When I started looking at a lot of the various floor plans back in Feb/Mar, some of the larger dealers had 60+ Benny's in stock. Covid shutdown went full force and two months later, these same large dealers had less than ten in stock with many on backorder from...

    Looking for my first 'New to Me' Benny - Performance Question

    Depending on the area and size/volume of local dealer(s), the discount can even be nearing 33-40% off for the mid to upper series models, especially during the upcoming boat shows in the off-season.

    Looking for my first 'New to Me' Benny - Performance Question

    Just a quick mention: the usual go-to prop for a Yamaha 150-200 2.8L (standard or VMax) is the Reliance SDS stainless steel 14.5 diameter by 15 pitch. Whichever one you choose, it may be worthwhile to negotiate in a second prop. There are no downsides to carrying a spare onboard, especially if...

    Looking for my first 'New to Me' Benny - Performance Question

    That's a very fair estimate. Depending on conditions, the bitoon would probably fall between 25-32 and the tritoon 35-42. The load (people, fuel, gear, etc) and the diameter/pitch of the prop will play a role for each of them, as well.

    Correct - that is the twin 25" straked pontoon configuration.

    Looking for my first 'New to Me' Benny - Performance Question

    Definitely go with the tritoon. It will perform and handle better, usually has more people/weight capacity, consume less fuel when on plane, and hold a better resale value over a bitoon. Alas, it's your money and your preference. If you dig the R series more than the G series and it will...

    Yamaha 90 VMAX SHO vs. 'Standard' 90

    Yes - absolutely amazing voice! I got the opportunity to meet them, shake their hands, and they happily autographed my CD insert during their tour back in 2000.

    Yamaha 250 SHO vs 300

    No, it won't change the standard Vee Three gauges with Striker 4. Choosing a DEC engine opens up any and every type of optional helm instrumentation that Bennington offers for the R series. - Vee Three gauges for DEC (digital interface versions) with Striker 4 - Yamaha CL 7" display for DEC -...
