how about wiring the boat the right way? Promised features that actually work the way they should? Or am I thinking too big here?

TR2’s I like it, however I’m not sure what the benefit would be over the 1.8 (other than at elevation).

Quick, before it's taken down!! One of the boating mags just leaked a test ride video of the new 26' X model. I think I heard him say 265X!!

Does that mean twin supercharged 1.8ltr engines in a ballast filled surf boat!!

Sorry to say, the board admins will remove this link if they deam it as an official leak. So click fast, click often. If someone knows how to suck down a video off Youtube, please do so, and we can share it locally before the release.

Enjoy!!

2020 Yamaha 265x E Series

Figures!! I would love to see a real red one. I loved the ‘14 242 Limited S. And I think maybe it was 17 had a 242 Limited SE that was actually red.

These “red” boats that are actually white with a red sticker annoy the heck out of me. Lol

That looks sharp! Still looks like a lot of red stickers, though.
