    Yesterday was a cold rainy day in north GA so the admiral and I decided to kill sometime at the Atlanta Boat Show. The broker we bought our boat through was there and we took advantage of some free tickets. 90% of the boats were CCs, pontoons, wake board boats, and bow riders. MM had a new SLX 400 that was beautiful. They also had a 320DA, but the line was far too long...The best looking boat in the whole place was a Hatteras-new rejuvenated Cabo 41. The new Skeeter Bass Boats are also impressive.

    The OB motors are most impressive....they are huge...

    I’d love a pair of those (or 350s) on the back of my 320. Especially if they are as good and reliable as my 14 year old Yamaha 200. Add water, battery, gas, and go.

    $45k a piece likely burning 40+ gallons an hour:eek:!! That one expensive sacrificial anode!!

    One article I read mentioned they are loud at 4000+ RPM.

    They were 38k in Tampa, boat show special (!) But the Suzuki 350s were at 25k, and they are super quiet. The 370 Venture has 300 Verados, and those are even quieter since they are enclosed.

    Where will it stop? Or will it? 425hp outboards, 5.6, that is close to the 350 CID in my Monaco and it is only 260hp. They are getting another 165hp from less CID. Amazing.

    I'm sure there not even close to what these outboards can do. All it is , is a Big ass V8. There's the Hemi Mopar that makes 1000hp now. Why not hang one of those off the back of a boat...lol

    Here's one. http://www.seven-marine.com/

    Or a boat like this...lol
