  1. New 505 lb Mercury V8 4 strokes

    That 300 with the 20" shaft would be perfect on the 2300 HPS! Plus you can get DTS!
  2. HPS 250 vs 300

    Thanks for the info. The 300 then is really too long and also adds an additional 57 lbs on the transom. I'll never understand why they don't offer the SHO with DTS.
  3. Trolling motor mounting

    I honestly don't believe the glassed-in mounting plate is thick enough to have enough threads to hold a trolling motor. Personally, I would through bolt it with either a backing plate or large S.S. fender washers on each bolt.
  4. HPS 250 vs 300

    Sorry to revive an old thread; but, I was wondering if anything has changed in reference to the 300 shaft length. I thought the F300 NCA was shipped from Yamaha without a lower unit. The manufacturer (in this case MBG), installs the required gear case. Won't a 20" SHO lower bolt onto a F300 NCA? Thinking of ordering a 2300 HPS and don't want to go back to cable controls. On a side note, funny how Merc can build the VRod in 4 different colors with three different shaft sizes and Yamaha just recently introduced white (300 only) and no 20" shaft. And no one could possibly want digital shift & throttle on their SHO, right? A 2300 HPS would SCREAM with a 300 VRod on it. Unfortunately, it would hurt the draft too much I think.
