    Upgrading from Honda 225 to new style fly-by-wire 250

    looks good , I stopped by the slip , sure is shiny and the white cowl makes so much sense over the dark colors. I am jealous of the 2 to 1 final drive, should work really well.

    Yep I get it . Nothing worse than to much prop in the slop. What you describe is how my boat feels now , in 4th gear trying to climb a mountain when it should be in 3rd. I think adding a blade and going down 4 inches in pitch should change things up.

    2520 xld deck hatch replacement

    As Goodchance notes the stock hatch MAYBE belongs on a vertical surface at best and maybe not at all. Mine is clean and in good shape but there just is no way the plastic can put the pressure on the o-ring required to seal properly in the real world. The hatch I linked above looks ok but never...

    both are good comments....... 1. If changing motor height was as easy as changing a prop I would agree 100% . And no doubt the performance will change w/ proper motor height adjustment , I just don't believe it will be enough to get where I need to be . My understanding , and it could be wrong (...

    OK and thanks. If I get close to the 2mpg area great but I expect w/ a load and a bunch less pitch I will loose some. That being said, at the speeds I will run most of the time the engine vacuum will be up from now, no doubt, so at slow to midrange planning speeds it may be similar . It's a rare...
