at that price why would you not investigate a few guys on the board to get you a rebuild price... like Tommy from Chief, Eddie Young, JCRP, Mark from Precision, Dean..or even Jassmeister perf engines..to me it would be less coin, possibly better parts..tell me what Im missing. And to ask 95k is just ludicrist....Thanks Jeff

Merc Racing told me $23k per when i talked to them last week. It's full rebuild with 6 mo. warranty. They also told me adjust valves with every oil change (25 hours), change drive oil (25 hrs) and the engine should go 150 hours.

The engines HAVE BEEN AWESOME. GREAT RELIABILITY.
Jeremy you have a killer 46 Rough Rider but since purchase you have bought a new Manning trailer, done a 95K rebuild and bought a F650 to pull it after letting your old F450 go for 12K.......You must have 200K into that boat after taxes, insurance, maintenance, truck and trailer......all after how many hours of use? 40-50 at best?

JB, I was on the phone with Randy at Cobra (a certified Mercury dealer for 25+ years) when you posted and told him about it. He said he would rebuild them, do all the upgrades, give you a 6 months warranty....all for $26.000.00 each. With a guarantee that $26,000.00 each is all you will pay, no up selling or surprises.
