Optimizing the performance of Boston Whaler boats

I got my Outrage 18 from the mechanic after he installed a Yamaha 150 HPDI. I am very pleased with the performance, especially [the reduction in] fuel consumption compared to the former Mercury 150-HP carbureted engine. The Yamaha 150 HPDI is 77-lbs heavier than the old engine, so looks like a battery relocation is next.

A fellow local to me, Tony in Omena Bay, has an OUTRAGE 18 with a Yamaha 150-HP HPDI engine. I looks like a very good combination. I am sure you will be very pleased with the performance. At 150-HP you have the OUTRAGE 18 at its maximum rated power.
Thank you for the fuel-water separator suggestion. I do have one in place, especially after mechanic told horror stories of water getting into injectors and the damage it can cause. I have witnessed too many people run water into engines, which could have been prevented with a separator.
