    How is everyone doing? New to the forum and have a question.
    I'm going to buy a new boat in a couple months, well new to me, and I'm looking into a mini daycruiser style. Now I like the idea and have seen some with the I/O combo witch I would prefer to have and the rest are jet setups. Now with the jet setup, I have looked at some Daytona mini daycruisers with jets and they have a chevy 350 powering them, now I'm used to jet boats having a big block in them. My concern is will a 20ft Daytona with a 350 jet setup pull the boat with 6 people in it or more? I'm just asking because if there aren't any I/O setups like I want I might settle for the jet setup and I just want to feel that if it has a 350 the boat won't struggle loaded down
