  1. Thanks to all for replies. Going to go with the same batteries former owner had installed. Talked with him this morning and he had no issues .
  2. Need to replace my batteries. VP manual says NOT to use deep cycle batteries on EFI as it will cause problems with EFI engines. Previous owner had replaced original batteries with dual purpose Starting /Deep Cycle batteries and things seem to be ok. Is this something I should be concerned about or just go ahead with new dual purpose batteries. Any and all information greatly appreciated.
  3. Looking at a 2012 - 310 with 5.7 Volvo Penta DP's with the Axius Joystick option. Does anyone have any experience with this system. Good or Bad. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks In advance

    Bravo 3 prop exhaust on muffs

    whaler New to this forum and computer stuff so please be patient with me as I learn. I've always had straight drive inboards until now so looking for info on I/O's. Anyway I had my Bravo 3's on muffs yesterday for pre launch engine warm up and only had water exiting through gimbal housing exhaust ports only. Nothing through the props. Is this normal.
