Tomorrow I will be buying a new 300hp Suzuki with a C-10 multi function color display for my 2520. I hope this is an improvement over my 2006 Yamaha F250. I am removing the bottom paint getting it ready for installation. Here are a couple of pics.

Oh Boy...... Sanding it off? Ugh! What are you going to do with the sanded gellcoat now?

Chemical stripper... is the way to go. No matter how you do it, it is a Royal Pain. It's worth every bit of $4000 to chemical strip the bottom.

My son and I did it several years ago. It got a 100% of us.....We got 98% of the coating off before are Ass's were kicked.

Just doing the transom. I trailer the boat and don't need to do the entire bottom just yet. I am removing most of the black and red with Easy Off oven cleaner and a scraper. The barrier coats I am sanding w/220 then 320. Once done sanding I will buff and wax. Anything you know of remove the barrier coat? Bought the white 300 today and will be waiting a few weeks for the install.

Go to the Auto Body supply store..... You want to get finer on the last sanding....This will make it easier to buff.

Suzuki 3 X 16 X 17 prop is what you want.

I asked about the prop today and that's the one he said they will try first. Hope to get the transom done this weekend.

New 300 looks great. Congrats!! Did you trade your old F250 with the dealer? Curious about roughly what kind of $'s that you can get for old one if you traded? Post your numbers afte you get her in the water.

You have used it well then. Very tempting to consider swapping mine out for yours but probably not worth all the time, effort and travel to make it happen. It would be an easy swap though as they are same year and everything would bolt right up. I would sell mine & could prob break even. Oh well. Guess I'll just do what your doing down the road when actually needed. Let us know how that nice new one runs for you.

Runs great but all the way from NC, not sure I would do that and besides in 6 months if something were to happen with it I would feel terrible. Also it is at the dealer waiting for the guy they deal with to pick it up.

Nice! Very anxious to see your performance numbers. I have the same year and model 99 2520 mv but I have a 2006 suzi 250. I run a 3x16x18.5 prop.

I run heavy 126gallon tank full all the time, 65 gallon split bait tank and 100-200lbs of ice, 20 rods, full offshore tackle, tuna tower and I'm getting 18-20 KNOTs at 4000, 21-24knots at 4300-4400rpm. Getting about 11.2-12.3 gallons per hour depending on head or following seas.

Curious why you didn't go for the Yamaha 300?
