I'd be more than happy to. How about we fly out on the 15th for 4 days, or won't the handbrake allow it?????

Well, how about it then?

Getting back on topic, this is is the V8 rumour

Quote:
Yamaha has scheduled a media event at its booth on the show floor at 1 p.m. on Feb. 15, where I'm betting it will pull the tarp off a prototype of its forthcoming V8 outboard, which may hit the market in 2008. Without revealing any details Yamaha boasted about this project last year, saying a pair of these giant outboards would replace triple 250s on a boat like the Grady-White Express 360 (http://www.gradywhite.com/360/) , which puts it in the 350-hp range. Yamaha was testing with Intrepid in the Keys last summer, and the buzz then was that the powerhead is based on a 4.4-liter V8 block Yamaha manufactures for Ford, increased to 5.0 liters. Optional twin-prop drive would offer the blade area required to move heavy boats.
