    The Evinrude would be a V-6 outboard rated 150 hp at the prop.-----That translates to 105 HP " jet power " ---yes jets are inefficient.----What do you know about the Yamaha 115 HP rating method ?

    The 115 HP Yamaha jet appears to be less displacement than the current 115 HP prop drive motor.-----Therefor ( don't quote me ) it would seem the Yamaha jet would be equivalent to about an 80 HP prop drive motor.-----This is from a few minutes online research.-----I would say that the EVINRUDE would be faster with 105 HP " jet power "----Jets have benefits but they are less efficient.------If you are boating in deep water a jet is not a good option.
