we use one battery, 1000cca, it is on a ski boat so only runs twin bilge pumps, starting and trim
have had no problems, it actually out performs the 225HO Evinrude Vindicator we had on the boat previously, and uses a s##t load less fuel

Ha ha ha!

Actually we're up against the 200HO, not sure if it's the Vindicator or not, but it's the ETEC one anyway and I think it's the torque from the 3.3 litre block that gives at advantage, plus of course the extra horsepower from the 10% tolerance rule that helps as well. We are obviously looking at any possibility and XS200 is flavour of the month - unfortunately there seems to ber only 1 around at the moment, and it is priced accordingly!


Dave, I might give you a call!
