most use 500ml, and some use 1000ml.

all depends on room and if you want the weight.

For heat racing, you can go as small as a 250ml bag, though most go with 500ml.

500ml is ideal - I would leave the 1000ml for bigger boats with twins or similar. Consider also that a 1000ml bag filled ads around 2 pounds of weight to a boat.

Stick with 1. You need to bring your boat in sooner than that to check for over-heating, parts coming loose etc Plus the weight issue. JMO
