Yanmar 300hps coupled to presumably something other than a Bravo 3x leg!

'Cos the combination of the Yanmar 300hp & the Bravo 3 or 3x leg is not noted for its longetivity

The Yanmar is popular cos its light weight (comparitively). Dunno about Mercruisers but the only RIB I ever came across with one in was a "brick outhouse" Delta. Definately not a racing machine!
