Mikkeg205 ,Yes, you read that correctly a 190/197 with 310 hp and 1:1 trans is a dog. In my opinion they are underpowered for what should be a sporty boat. I had the same drivetrain in my 99 SportStar(95-97 ProStar Hull) and it was a rocket. The newer boats are heavier with a larger wetted surface creating more drag(improving tracking and wake though). I would only consider a 190/197 with PowerSlot and/or higher output motor.
