opti 200

Hi all.

Would like some more input from you knowledgeable lot!
As I've just got my hands on an opti 200 I'm already wondering how I can lighten it? The bloody cowl weighs a ton in itself so thinking of taking a mould from the original and fabricating my own lightweight version.
Also wondering if the powerhead fits on an offshore mid? Plus maybe a CLE box?
Any other tips would be much appreciated!

The newer version of the 200 have a lighter cowling but they are not cheap.

Also it will not fit a MOD midsection

you would almost certainly be able to retrofit a 300 alien cowl
