I'm sorry If this comes off as a flame but I've waited with big expectations on this package.

The drive looks sweet. The engine would look better in the Merc blue. Doesn't really matter......only a few OSO'ers will be able to afford the combo anyway

Let me get this straight........

Everyone has been waiting and waiting for Mercury to develop a drive that will handle mid range hp, and you guys are complaining about what it looks like??

I think it looks alot better than missing an entire weekend because of a piece of chit busted Bravo!

Very nice option. Does the 850 still get a #6?
