Just get a quote from your local bass pro if your local dealer is priced too high.

Amazing how different everyone thinks. I changed my build specs from the 200 Zuke within hours of introduction at Miami. Never even asked what it cost, I was more determined to support the new, long awaited, long anticipated, American muscle product to finally come to the table.... Iím tired of seeing bad ass American built boats to depend on the Japanese or Canadians to power them. Atleast Iíll lay my head down at night knowing I did my part to help contribute to the new economy. Whether the motor ends up a winner or a loser..... Iíve already jumped, so weíre all gonna see if my parachute opens.

You are right it is amazing. What I was saying is that the quote I got from the dealer was really high and that I need to keep shopping dealers for a better price, because I am not blind to getting taken advantage of. But if it turns out to be the same money I am going with 300 hp in zuke or G2.

Someone who used to race with a local dealer was telling me last night that Mercury is working on a v8

A V8 would certainly be interesting.

that's interesting. That's going to be one heck of a heavy crank shaft.
