    Thinking of going from a 150 to a 250 Yamaha

    I am not a-jerk either but my motto is if you can’t afford the gas don’t buy the boat.

    Thinking of going from a 150 to a 250 Yamaha

    Just a note for all boat owners. You all need to go WOT more often. If not, you get compression issues. My dealer recommend 5 minutes of WOT every time the boat is used to burn up the carbon.

    Yamaha 250 SHO vs 300

    It is way worth it. It is way more responsive than mechanical and make docking a breeze.
