I have a B3 outdrive on similar sized boat although lighter. My SeaRay 280 Slx is about 29 ft weighs 7000 lbs dry with 350 Merc and has a 9 ft beam. The one huge benefit of the B3 is the counter rotating props buried some 40 inches below the water. Tie this up to an automotive type block and the torque and speed is outrageous. I am man enough to tell u that I backed off the throttle at 4000 rpm and 38 mph in a two foot chop. The draw back of this outdrive is the wake it produces - even at 5-6 mph I sometimes get called out on the radio in no wake zones.
