    Which one? 226 SSI vs 243 VRX

    Sorry, I do not like jet drives. The twin drive rotax engines are much louder at the helm than the 5.7. My kids did never hit the outdrive jumping off the back. The drive on 226 Chaparral is almost 2 1/2 feet back of your swim platform edge. As for fuel, the rotax engines Will consume a lot more than the 5.7. Down the road you can add a tower. If you are like most of us, will want a bigger boat in 3 to 5 years. Good Luck
