    Hi,

    I am a barefooter and saw everyone is telling me to go with a big single instead of a small twin. So, has anyone ever had a single 300 e-tec on a 20ft dyne? What for top end, handling, please let me know!

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Yep, had one last year on our team's single rig.

    Brutal hole shot and plenty of top end. On a single engine boat propped to pull skiers you won't see much difference in top end between a 225 and a 300, but on the low end the 300 E-Tec is really strong. We ran a 15 Rebel 3 blade and the boat did about 46 mph and we pulled 8 couples off the dock with it.

    Its a great motor but for personal use the 225 E-Tec is everything you'd need.

    I have a 250 etec on my 20 ft dyne. I have a 17 pitch rebel that will push the boat at 54 mph with 6 people on board. I have pulled 5 footers at 45mph and still had a little left. I love this motor. I have always been a merc guy but, nothing is better then etec. The 250 is the best. My opinion only.

    P.S. we have pulled 7 couples with this boat. bit of a hard hit but had the power to do it. probably could do one more.

    300 would be total overkill for just straight barefooting. I keep referencing the older outboard barefoot ski boats, Matercraft, Sanger, Centurion, etc... None of them had twins, and I do not think any of them had anything bigger than a 200 from the factory. Twins and triples are set up for ski teams pulling lots and lots and lots of skiers, pyramids, etc... I am sure the 225 or the 250 would rock! Just like the other guys said.
