Would like to here some thoughts that anyone has on this
new engine Merc announced at show todat. the V350
A few other details are leaking out from the boatbuilders and such. Some details:

1. it's a new engine and not just a software dialup of the 300. It has new heads, new supercharger and other internal parts changes....no change in boost pressure.
2. It is the same displacement as all other 6 cyl verados.
3. It will burn 91 mandatory and carry the same warr as the XS 300 (2 yr).
4. some changes to the gearcase - I assume more strength
5. and it is WILD looking....look for pics here on the start of the show with another surprise that will blow you away.
6. about the same weight as any othe 6 cyl verado (635)
ne.
Has anyone heard an official date we can get these for consumer use?

Thanks, I might be getting a boat built and wondering if I should wait for these, or use the 300s. Just trying to figure out the timeline.
