RE: RE:NEW BOAT

Give the 270 a shot! The 220 is way to small for your engine. You could even run a Prather 275 or maby a 280. Homelights have lots of torque and can turn a pretty large prop.

Good luck!

I saw a guy buying a few and asked him if he liked them. He told me that they ran good and were easy to tune.

I see them for sale and wonder if they are any good too! I know the price is right!
