Air flow on 197?

Where does a 197 engine gets its outside air from? My 1994 205 had 2 vents on each side in the front. My 197 seems to only have an air intake on the transom. Doesn't seem very efficient to me. Does...

I would agree, my 1994 205 was very nimble but took on water from the bow often if I didn't pay attention. By the way, the 197 nose dives just as much as the 1994 205. The 2nd generation 205 will...

I have owned and skiid behind an IO and I have owned and skiid behind a 1994 205. The 1994 205 is an excellent slalom boat. The wake I think is every bit as good as the 197 I have now. My son liked...
