I'm curious about these engines and wondering if any one here has had any experience with them - good or bad, specifically the 250 hp.
I'm high & dry again with my port engine seized up completely. I was told about $10k to fix, so with my current engines being about 7 years old and just over 700 hours I'm looking to weigh out all options.
1. Fix port engine for $10k
2. Repower with new E-Tec 225's
3. Repower with Yami V6 250's
4. Block up boat for season & wait til the boat shows to shop around - engines & boats... (really don't want this option)
When my E-Tec's have run they're great, but I've had a number of issues over the years since buying them in 2005. Lower units x2, powerheads x2 now, fuel pumps, shifting issues, etc. I'm always told my issues are the first the dealer has seen...
A new boat is always in the back of my mind but I really have no issues with my boat, which is a 2000 Hydra Sports 2796 Vector CC. So if you have feedback to provide on these newer Yami's please let me know. And if you want to give an opinion on my options listed above, I'm open to hearing anything at this point. I'm really torn on what to do...
