  • 241 overpowered, overweight?

    Hello to all. My name is Bill and I'm new to this site. Got some Questions. I got a 93 241 that I'm fixing up. I bought the hull without the motors. I just picked up a pair of 2002 ox66's 250's in mint condition. My questions are: Too much power and stress on hull? and are they too much weight? the hull is notched. Any opinions appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Your hull is only rated for 400 hp, so Insurance / Coast Guard may have something to say re putting 500 on it.

    Re weight, I'm sure others will chime in.

      If your transom is solid and youve done a battery relocate you should be ok. If you get on the mako fb page there is a 241 with twin 225 or 250 ox66 motors and he hasnt mentioned any issues. His name is Nick

        Yeah, that was a concern of mine. When I looked at the boat originally It had the older carbureted version of Yamaha 250's on it but I just wanted the hull. These motors are almost a drop on fit as they came with all rigging, controls, etc. Hope I don't have to get a 30" shaft and just run one motor. Thanks for your input gmcauliffe.

          Thanks 231 Mike for the lead, Ill check it out. I'm definitely excited about this boat. The motors came off a hydrasports 26 vector we ran it 50 mph on the river, he said he was pushing over 8k pounds.

            long ago one of my buddies had a 241 with twin 225 black max's and it was a fishing machine and would run well into the 50's with a full tower. My only issue with the boat was lack of baffles in the fuel tank. with 250's you should be cruising!

              Well I got the motors sitting in the garage. Photos coming soon. I plan to use Imgur for photos. I'm hoping to splash this 241 in one year

                I use Flicker to put up my photos. I think the 200, 225 and 250 Yamaha 2 stroke outboards all weighed about the same. I think you'll be close to 60 mph at top speed with that setup. Good luck with your project.
