If you want anything resembling performance, go with the Merc 300xs's. The old dependability gap has narrowed to insignificance as well.

Those new Merc's are stout, economical and will give you a much higher speed ceiling to work with.

Cool. They sound good. Wonder if you can make them louder.

Still like my 300XS's
What are the torque curves and max rpm hp rpm numbers? This would make the decision for me on which motor I would choose for a particular boat.

There is a brand new 38 Fountain at my marina two lifts over from me. It has 3 of the new mercs on it and wow, they're BIG! Not really any room to fish over the back. It looks like it would be hard to pull a big fish in from the rear of the boat or work your line around the back of the motors.

The boat is on a 12K lift and it's struggling....

My boss is repowering his 39' Midnight with 3 Verado's. He had two Optimax on there before (underpowered).

I'm looking forward to hearing how he likes these motors and I know he'll give me an honest assessment.
