I have never represented myself as an expert on anything on this forum........Like I said before Mike....get over yourself.....get a reality check.

MPH 120, your absouloutly right about TOTAL MARINE. I also got there prices right before I went down to THUNDER, and was real close with going with them, but elected to go with EICKERT on ly for the fuel injection and resale. I will probably in 2 or 3 years move up and get THUNDERS 42 or 49 and then look at those guys again. They do everything right, are honest, will be more established at that time and I wont have to worry about resale. ALL THE PARTS ARE THE SAME, for the money. This is where I will be getting my boat serviced, and just purchased the drives IMCO SC from them, they gave me a deal I couldnt refuse. You also made a great choice.

Just to throw a little water on the fire, I kind of compare engine builders to restaurants. Most of them buy the same ingredients, usualy from the same suppliers. But you know you go to one place and the meal is just so-so, maybe even lousy. Then you go to the next place, maybe it's just a storefront with 10 tables, or it could even be a big chain that is managed real well. Same ingredients, but the food is fantastic.

I was in the engine business for a brief while, and I will tell you it is not easy.

Paul Pfaff (Pfaff Engines) is very personable and talks to you like a human, and has the time to spend with you on the phone or in person. No pressure and everything is laid out on the table for you.
