Well, an extended warranty is a great value, and from our experience with different companies, we have always found the Mercury to be the best. Since we are a Mercury dealer, and you will most likely be taking your boat to a Mercury dealer, I would recommend you go that route. Some of the other companies, or the repair facilities you take you boat to may require you to pay the bill yourself, and then get re-imbursed. As with anything, you should check out all options, and this board is a great way to do it!
As far as pricing goes, All Mercury dealers have to sell at the list price, legally extended warranty cannot be discounted.
