So let's say the twin E-TEC 150s weighed in at 836LB.

A single Merc 300 weighs 527LB. Twin Merc 150s at 910LB is 74LB...

Diesel outboards aren't anything new, they're just not very common, at least here in the US.

Perhaps the most well-known is https://www.oxe-diesel.com/ and they have multiple models.

What...no...

So you're saying that HD pickups with 30,000LB tow capacities should (or do) weigh 30,000LB or more themselves with a GCWR of 60,000LB? For a pickup? Not sure where you got that idea,...

So, who else makes 2-strokes on par with the E-TEC? Nobody. There was no competition in that market and they still struggled with sales. There's no less competition now because they weren't...

The higher the engine load and/or the more throttle you give it the longer the computer will hold a lower gear, don't want it to shift too soon, bog, and then just end up downshifting again. ...

My time is worth something, that's why I walk into the dealer knowing what I can and will pay, I give them one or two sheets of paper that basically guarantee what I can get the vehicle for, and they...

You misread/misunderstood what I said, perhaps because I wasn't clear. By the time you have an electric drum brake setup worthy of boat trailer use (galvanized, etc) it'll cost just as much as...

Invoice price is not dealer cost. Dealerships would like you to think it is and then feed you the "I've got 10 mouths to feed at home!" line. Rest assured, dealers make profits selling vehicles at or...

Not sure what you mean? I haven't done business with any dealer that has done that, but I've seen sales contracts that have shown doc fees of $999 which is insane. A dealer claims to be giving you...

MSRP is a useless figure because there is no way of knowing what the markup is. 10% off MSRP on one vehicle would be a better deal than 10% off MSRP on a different one. I only deal based on invoice...

You didn't say if it was 4WD or not. If it's not 4WD then watch out for slick ramps. If you're going to be going into the bays, running the ICW, or any other area that is affected by tides then I'd...
