That Tideline looks nice!

That Scout is big but I'm not digging the styling on the windows. Not that I could afford those windows!

Roughly 670-700 pounds, depending on shaft length.

I'm blaming Yamaha for no big new Mercury. Their competition didn't have anything to compete with what they already have.
Come on Yammie. Turn up the power on the behemoth and lets get this going!.

I've always been a yamaha guy, but after sea trialing some mercs out there and seeing the tech, I would have no problem putting 2 mercs on my next boat and saving $10k.

I mean my Yamaha 300 doesn't even come with steering assist....

Yamaha guy here as well and can not disagree. This time last year when the boat was being built I was nervous that we wouldn't have engines because of the Yamaha back orders on 300s. It was then I realized I wouldn't hesitate to slap some Mercs on.

That is a little out of line for an oil change. That would be a total 100 hour service if you needed lower unit service too etc etc. Even then doable at $500 or less in most markets.

All doable DIY style for $150 or less per engine. Although someone with 6 engines is most likely limited in skill set to just turning a key or pushing a binnacle start button in this case and crossing his fingers.

Let me help you. It's Miami. Miami is full of weirdos. Miami is visited annually by millions of weirdos.

not completely out of line, my every other service is $900 with water pump for my yamaha 300hp. Probably going to start doing it myself on next boat.

Miami is fun. I was just there last week. Itís always fun and has about the nicest water anywhere in the US. People are scared of Miami because they live in bubbles. Miami has all types of people and cultures but itís definitely fun if you like boating or life in general.

That guy with the heart outfit is from up North, he forgot that down here is 80 degrees and forgot to pack his summer clothes and decided to just wear his underwear.
