I didn't photoshop the picture, those were on a See Vee 39. If See Vee put the 300 label on them I don't know.

Don't forget disposal cost/tax for the waste oil the service center will charge you.

By the way, where is the oil drail hole on the Verado's ??? Is it servicable while the boat is water ?

ArFactory re-badged Verado 250/275's to say 300 just to create some noise for the show but will be released soon or ____?
ECM's dont lie.. Neither do the product id/S/N plates.. Those are 275's as is the 300 in the booth..

Guys ... there are plenty of "test mules" runnin around on Grady Whites and Contenders down there right now ... The Outboard wars are really starting to heat up ! BUT , a little patience will go a long way here , as AVAILABILTY may be a bit down the road on some of this stuff ... especially of concern are the lower units holding up ... but they're getting there .....

Most any auto parts store will recycle your oil for free. The boat has to be out of the water to drain the oil just like changing the oil on a bravo outdrive.

Also you do not have to use the Mercury oil. Most all the SKA guys with Verado's are using Mobil 1 which is less than the Merc stuff.

Part of the what makes the Verado's good is the whole package as a system. The throttles and steering are car like, easy to use and work, no cable to worry about and very very reliable.

[QUOTE=marylandmark;2029340]Good eye there Scott B. You would think a company the size of Merc could have done a better job perpetrating a 300. They are in bed with Reggie right? (ps- I like beakers; just stirring the pot as it is 17 degrees in MD... )




Actually the banner over the Fountain both in Miami read "Fountain Mercury"

I notice Merc is introducing a new 200 hp 4 cylinder Verado and will still have the 200hp 6 cylinder Verado. Seems a little strange. I guess lighter weight is the goal,but to get the same horsepower rating with 4 cylinders instead of 6, wouldn't they have to turn the boost way up? Looks like the 4 cyl 200 would be highly stressed,or maybe the 6 cyl 200 is low stressed.

The 4 cyl 200 is a pretty interesing package.. All of the 4 strokes are overweight, it's good to see Merc is working on solutions.. I didnt look at the ECM on the display one though, maybe it's really a 125??

Yes, there are test mules down here, seen a few already. Merc 300 will not be available until August, the Yammie 350's are suposedly in the warehouse now and ready to ship...

I did look at the S/N tag on the display "300" however..



Rather closely
