    Default Inboard or outboard jet - Alabama jet novice seeking advice.

    Hey - thanks for all of the recommendations provide on boats.

    Quick question regarding inboards or outboards? If you get something sucked up into an inboard - is it easy to clean out? Say it gets past the stomp grate. Are impellers easy to change out? Can you do it while the boat is in the water or beached?

    I don't know, looking for recommendations.

    Right now I am eaning towards a Extreme Shallow 1875 with the 160HP Yamaha - was just wondering how big of a pickle I'd be in if I'm remote and suck something in the jet.

    THanks!

    The Yamaha unit in the 1875 Jetcraft XS has a jet cleanout that you can stick your arm in to pull stuff out. So if something gets past the stompgrate, you should be able to get it out through the cleanout hole.

    I have a 2005 Evinrude 250 on my boat. I love it! It is a bit lighter than an inboard and you don't have it taking up valuable boat space. But like anything else you give up a few things like better fuel economy, although the outboards are getting better.
