For me I would prefer outboards just because by having the motors out of the water when your wet slipped like me it stops a lot of growth, corrosion, and just wear from being in the water
You're 100% right that's why I was phrasing it below 35 feet. The 430 is sweet and at a reasonable $800K! Haha
I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure the 25sc is simply the 24 SD with an outboard setup. But I haven't looked over the exact specifications

Yes not sure why they wouldn't make fillers for the bow. The 262 has them and it's not that much different. Sorry guys but I'll take a i/o salt water edition and a swim platform before the outboard. They have a 5 year warranty and I would just upgrade after 5 years or before and see what improvements come out. If you want quiet The new ones are very quiet. Storage I don't think there is a shortage of storage on these boats. I just wish the had storage asking the sides to stuff towels and things in. I know they want clean lines inside and out but that is one big thing I miss from our Crownline.

If I'm on a freshwater lake I'm not even considering an outboard (unless you're fishing... a lot).

Down in Florida I wouldn't consider in I/O. Definitely outboards in the salt. Looking at this rig right here: https://www.seaveeboats.com/center-cons ... y-edition/

...but i love to fish.

Near Buffalo I'd get your R7 and in a few years you find you're spending more time in Bonita Springs then sell the R7 and get something that fits your needs down there.

Liquid if you like seavee check out nortech. It's a thing of beauty.

That's the fun of not being in a rush to order. Summer is a long way off, and I have the pleasure to attend a national boat show and weigh all options.
Honestly, I want to buy a boat that I will own for years to come. Too much depreciation to stomach.
I did make one decision though, and that was to put a deposit down on a Loadmaster custom trailer build later this spring. So if I want to tow down there, I'll have a trailer that's solid.

Notech is in a different league then that other center console. Or a cigarette?

If in salt with a sterndrive, definitely OceanX outdrive or similar, and no raw water cooling! Replacing the heat exchanger in a closed-loop cooling system is a pain, but not as much as a new engine.
