Exactly.

Also, doesn't Merc renew the warranty once the total has been done?

Example: You take the 1075/850 to some guy who "says" he can rebuild it for much less than Mercury. You agree and proceed, and the engine fails after say 10-15 hours. Merc will fix it again without cost if they had done the work vs. being up chit creek with the other guy, right?

If you do the Mercury refresh.
Parts are covered for 180 days on the 850 and 90 on the 1075.
Labor comes with a 30 day warranty.

Yes, you get the same warranty as when they are new. And don't forget the 25% discount to orginal purchaser. This will get the price down competive with a sterling rebuild, but with a warranty. Also merc tends to replace alot more parts than most other engine shops.

Question

I know there are quite a few OSO'ers with Merc 700's that have been in and running for at least two seasons. I would like to hear from some of those users as to where they are now on engine hours and what they expect from here on in?

Regards,
Ray @ Raylar
