she rides as only a butt cat can, really dream like, could not ask for more out of a 25fter. but she is a big 25fter. how come the 670 and not the 685? you getting a Center console.?

I looked at towing weight and beach handling and she just seems the right size for my needs. I am going with the Center Consol the Chariot Consol.

Ya i think your right, the 685 is quite a bit bigger and wider, its 400kg heavier too. 670 will be easier to tow and use on the beach. Great rig!

here's a pic of a 670 CC

Cracker I see you are converting to the dark side.

No bad new motors on the market , but I am leaning towards Honda - they have only ever built 4 stroke and the most experience with the type.

Cracker 48, I joined the Honda club in March this year and am most impressed. Their 90hp is particularly impressive with vtec, blast etc etc. Well worth a look!

Cracker 48 it depends on the service closest to you and the pricing you get ( most NB). I like the honda but the Suzuki 90A is a better engine than the Honda 90

why suzuki is better...
Lighter weight, more compact, 341 lbs vs.359 lbs.
Offset driveshaft = better balance
Self adjusting oil bathed timing chain vs. over head belt. No belt maintenance or adjustment necessary.
2.59:1 vs. 2.33:1 Lower gear ratio to swing a larger prop for improved acceleration
5.8 qt vs. 4.6qt: More lubrication, more cooling.
Suzuki Easy Start System. SImply turn the key and release, the starter will take care of the rest.
Suzuki Lean Burn Control System for better fuel economy
Streamline Gear Case for better performance

Also what is the price of a Suzuki 90A vs Honda 90?

Suzuki rate power at the flywheel and honda at the prop. So Honda is more powerful!

Honda has Blast technology.

Suzuki is great but when it comes to specifically the 90 HP range, I think both have pros and cons. None of which you will actually notice.

BTW, do you know Sharks board have been using Honda motors on some of their boats?
