282 will become famous soon enough
Model Owned: 2011 SFx

Default It was a 28AT

28 with blue/silver splashed on the side, 496HO and I pulled that and put a 525 merc blue motor in it. Super cool boat on a myco tripple axle trailer. Really nice, just as the family grew the boat style changed with it. I have to find a pic.

Had an awesome maiden voyage on the Barracuda CC last Sunday..It's quite a bit different than a performance boat! You feel a lot more chop and wakes with the shallow deadrise. Spinning a crappy aluminum prop and dragging a T-Top and full fuel tank/gear I was seeing a blistering 41MPH GPS. Mmmm..time for jack plate and a SS prop.....

Starting to enjoy my center console! Completed a small gelcoat repair, ordered a LED T-Top light, bought a semi-custom boat cover. Cleaned up some wiring inside the console, etc. Gonna look into a stainless steel prop to eek out some more speed. If the weather is good, I may go for a boat ride on Sunday!

Suzuki's are great motors. I had one on a fishing rig and loved it. The only thing I disliked about, if you can say that, is it was so quiet at idle I would forget to shut it off when we would get to a new spot. I finally got in the habit of checking for a pee stream to double check.

My Verado 300 Pro was quieter than the Suzuki. Sometimes I would forget that I already started the motor!! The DF 140 is a real lightweight performer! It only weights 410 lbs, DOHC with 4 valves/cylinder, multi point sequential electronic fuel injection, performance lightweight cowl with large air induction, revs to 6200 rpm & more.
