    I am trying to decide between a 1998 310 Sea Ray with 5.0EFI 200hrs and a Sea Ray 310 with 5.7MAG MPI 300 hrs. Please help me with this issue.

    Bigger motors if both boats are in equal shape and well maintaned. 300 hours is no big deal.

    I agree....300 hours on a boat that year does not seem like a lot at all. Dont forget to definately get a survey either way!:thumbsup:

    5.7's are some of the best motors ever built. Better to have the extra power and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    Which one, when you look at it, makes you smile the most? Once you know that it becomes an easy decision, as long as it checks out right.
