Default aquacraft reo 51 with fugi 28 help

Just purchased a used boat and would like to know why these fugi motors are considered a poor motor.I have repaired the cracked exhaust/welded and bent to exit the boat nice and square.Guy I bought this from says it was a pain to break in but runs great now and hauls.

Just different compared to a Zenoah, I have not seen anything good about them.

Compared to the others like the Zenoah's, RCMK's and even the CY/Sikk's, they're junk. It's a bad conversion of a plane motor and it doesn't haul. This must be your first gas boat.
It's not just the engine itself in that boat but the rest of it from the really bad flex cable setup to the poorly placed exhaust.

Good talking to you tonight. I don't know if I was any help or not. We'll get together when the water thaws and play with our toys.
