Jeff,
Thanks for your input. My dealer here in Utah always said the same thing. When I talked to him about it at the boat show he mentioned a concern about purchasing a boat with the 8.1. That they don't make it anymore and any future maintenance will be tricky and costly. That scares me some. I like the 45 but have concerns about the 6.0 handling it.

Anyone in Utah/Colorado with a 45 that has the 6.0 in it?
