    That bullet nose high speed gearcase will not have anything to do with the top end until speeds of over 70mph come into play, and that will never happen on a 189 with a 150.

    ^^^ Correct, in some cases it may even slow you down.

    With all due respect Renegade, The F200 is the same in line 4 as the F150. The SHOs if im not mistaken run V Blocks. The 150 is a four cylinder and the 200+ SHOs are all 6 cylinders. So as far as weight to power when comparing the F200 and the SHO i think its a no brainer.

    It is 15 pounds more of motor and 100 more hp from a 150 to a 250. Move the batteries forward and hold on.The sho 250 is just 505 lbs vrs 490 lbs for the 150/200. If you want power you might as well go for real grunt.

    What I don't understand it, if you look at the yamaha performance bulletin for the F150 and 150 SHO on a maverick 18 hpx, they are almost identical. The boat with the f150 was heavier overall as tested, yet faster to plane and faster 0-30 mph. The SHO had a marginal higher top end speed.

    Those performance bulletins are not reliable nor realistic. They usually are with unrigged boats in the best of conditions with suspect prop choices....and for what it's worth, only a retard would hang the SHO or standard F150 on the HPX or any other poling skiff.
