Not sure why you thought they were bigger. Not sure they make power effortlessly, but they are efficient and they make great torque.

Have you experienced support from Big Blue versus Ilmor in the last 12 -18 months. From my limited inquiries the Ilmor owners are hugely more happy about support than the Merc owners.

Again, that is limited input, and I agree that there are way more places to get Merc worked on. But on the other hand, personal care is personal care.

Quad , 2 will be enough.

I think I will just push out of the slip, throw the hook out, and put the generator on. We can tie up at the end of the cove and retrieve golf balls for those that can't make the shot over the cove.

If they were'nt the same price as the merc 600 and had a konrad drive. It would probably be the best bang for the buck between 600-700 reliable horsepower, but still have to deal with big blue resale, time will even things out. I still think the merc 525 and save the 10k per side and get 550hp reliable, great motor and great resale, and 600's only run 3-4mph faster and have a blower and require premium fuel.

Did you decide whether or not to put a pair of 625s in one of your Nortech's coming?
