I can't help but think this is great news for anyone in the business. I bet my dealer, who also sells Merc, is secretly happy about it.

I think they should be close to $30K less than what I just paid after tax. Seriously, I wouldn't pay more than $10K knowing it is at best a lease that you will need to dump as it gets harder to find...

Funny. I was just thinking about running the piss out of mine like a 4 stroke making oil just for the hell of it until warranty is up. Instead of "babying" it, I might make it feel like it went to...

I hope you heal wherever the big, bad Evinrude touched you. WTF is wrong with some of you people.

Shot in the dark, but maybe Mercury will rebrand them. The research is done, facilities and employees in place. Nothing left to do but keep producing and warranty parts.

Wow. All gravy is a description of how she eats. I don't mind fat adults. Chit, I'd put myself in that category. But groups of spring break age kids wearing kinis carrying an extra 50-100 lbs? WTF?

Good luck. Something tells me this venture is about a decade late though. When 557s hit the market, the Yam 350 was the closest competitor. Now with factory Mercs putting out 450 with warranties, the...

I replaced my 3 inch diameter speedometer with a Bluetooth head unit. I cant remember the brand. Boss makes an identical model. It pushes 4 speakers, 6.5 inch loud enough to hear while cruising.
