thank you guys so so much.
Yes this is what I was told by my merc service guy, he said 220 on the NA's and 260 on the FI's.
I just found that so weird to have such a large difference in HP from Carb to FI.
The other weird thing is that I read a boating review of the 3100 SE 2003 model, same as mine.
They talked about how the motors were 220 HP, carburated with some sort of special quick start feature, but more importantly, they referred to the vessel having B2 drives.
They talked about how the boats top speed was in the mid 30's yet the article did not mention any options for B3's or 260HP motors, etc.
It was very confusing. And for sure my boat will go faster than that as I had it up to 44 MPH at one point in my very limited time of using it.
My wife and I just got the boat and have had it out two weekends in a row and stayed over night in it tied up to some friends last weekend. It was below freezing and I bought it winterized so all we did was de-winterize the gen and motors and left the systems alone. We used some little space heaters to keep warm below at night.
In the day in the thirties, we were down to t-shirts inside the canvas, it was very warm and lovely.
We love this Maxum boat and cant wait to get it all figured out and have fun with it next year.
OMG! I have so much to do. Antiquated GPS, some gauges that dont work, not so hot sound system, update TV and install one up top and in aft bunk for the kids, etc etc.
Thanks for the help guys,
Mike and Lara
