I ran the 31st Contender at the Miami Boat show that had a pair of the new 300's on the back. The motors are sweet indeed and will be a great seller for Yamaha. Additionally the new gauge package is outstaning.
Talking with my "source" just today I believe there has been a slight delay as the motors will not be flowing into dealerships until late May. I know one boat builder that has 13 on order for sold boats. They will get them in the first shipment.
