I assume another pair of Merc's finest, which flavor this time around.

I want to know about this Bertram? Is there a thread on it?

Pete, glad you're getting your hands greasy, it'll wash off some of the waxy buildup.
AXA? isn't he doing the trawler thing?

As of this a.m. my non-classic hull and deck were still in the molds.


That's a pretty stout stringer system there, Formula should have had them do their FasTec series for them. Glad to see the new purchase came together for you.

AXA has settled into a Formula 37 PC with some big Merc gasser power and a porcelain flush ****ter. Rumor has it she is a handful up around 27 on the GPS, but if you get up on the wheel you can drive thru to 28.395 on a good day.

You're an OSO troll, leave to freshen the cocktail and Poof, here you is.

So when is the new addition due to be delivered?

This could begin to resemble the old Ball Buster thread.

yes, being in the right place at the right time is a skill of mine...
and with Cary waiting patiently on power for who knows how long, and you taking a couple seasons off to change those couplers, we got notin' but time and space

3 weeks build time, bla bla bla early May?
gotta get moving on the trailer which takes 2 weeks. Today.
Had interest in the new Mercs on mine but between the headaches of finding someone who knows what they are doing to rig it, and the unknown ETA on the motors, I just went Yamaha factory rig.

EDIT: There's nothing too high-tech current cutting-edge about those Yamahas, and they are fairly ugly to look at...
The new Mercs and even the G2's make 10% more torque on 10% less fuel HP for HP
but they are a well-known proven commodity that can find service virtually anywhere if needed.
Lots of tales of them going 7-10000 hours strong on nothing but oil changes, timing belts, and water pumps.
I did get the 6 year warranty. Again nothing special as they are all offering extended coverage promos of varying lengths at any time.
