Default 2800sx Next Steps

My 2800sx Christmas gift to myself from Bravo 1 arrived in Jersey a few days ago. After 5 hours of cleaning the 3K miles of road dust, it truly looked brand new and the craftsmanship was first rate Few photos after the cleaning and now need to start looking for some power. Focusing on used low hour Verado's 300HP+ first to see what's out there.

Chuck, I wouldn't rule out a pair of Mercury 300xs's or Mercury 250xs's set at 24" centers on hyd jack plates. The Verados are so user friendly with the DTS and electrohyd. Steering but the roosting hp will still be the 2 Stroke motors. Even a pair of 300 Pro Max's will make the 28 an awesome rig!

Good points Jup. I will not rule out the 300xs although the wifey has gotten used to the quietness of the 4 strokes

Quietness? Serious?
Just please don't be offended if a couple of us try to have sex with it.
(Yeah, knarloid, Drop, Ram, etc....... you know who I mean.) Not Bruce- he just wants to wrench on it.
Just kidding guys. No need to share this with the wives.

He could scavenge the 400R off the back and then would only need a second counter rotator 400 for his 2800Sx Outboard...and just slap a 300xs to the BRX....
