    Are you able to give us an idea what this 250 pound 10mph 8ft boat is going to be used for? Any other design parameters (surface piercing cat etc)?

    Bare motor vs Bare motor (no pipes, clutch etc) I would say the zenoah is around half the weight. It is also more compact, higher reving, and capable of more power.
