Default Mercury 1200's?

Why don't I see any in the new 2008 model boats coming out?

Really the 1075's don't have one either, I think that is 90 days? And the 850 is 6 months? I'm pretty sure you don't get any kind of warranty of a year or more until you get down to the 700 package.

No warranty and most people don't want the hassle of race gas when the 1075's run on 93 octane.

Well 112 octane wouldn't hold me back if I was paying upwards of 1 mil for a boat. to each his own i guess

reliable low horsepower = more time on the water with less headaches even though you won't have the bragging rights. Just make some chit up at the end of the day at the bar.

It's not about money. You can by 1200 hp that runs on pump gas from just about any credible engine builder. It's not the cost of fuel but the inconvience to find it when boating
