    Thank You....I look forward to your future comments. I'm thinking of the new 197 Islander with the Mercury 4Stroke. Tough to find a 197 with the Mercury150, so i look forward to your performance numbers.

    Hey chris

    Sorry I did not get back to you sooner. Did not see message.

    I have only taken engine out once - last Friday but what a huge difference in the sound that alone is worth it to me. My son says the new 150 at wot is like the old optimax 175 at idle. Based on that one ride for about 30 minutes I liked the new engine better than the old one. It seems much smoother. I really did not notice any less performance except maybeattop end. However I think I need to go down a pitch on the prop. Based on my one ride I would do it again.

    I got what I considered a good deal, total of 7 years merc warranty' mounted , rigged out the door for 12,400. I may take it out this weekend if it warms up and if remember will follow up after break in.

    Let me know what you end up pulling the trigger on and if you are happy as well.
