Ray..I think the point is whether someone has a 300 hp boat or a 1300 hp boat, they have what they can afford, the cost of service isn't the real issue, the issue is that if you have a boat, you want to be able to jump in, turn the key and go boating. If you having the valves adjusted, drives serviced, the motor refreshed or whatever..the boat is not available to go for a boat ride. Even mor eimportant when your around the great lakes and have a shorter season. The thought of DEPENDABLE big power has people fascinated.

Spoke to Fred in great detail for some time in Miami.He said 200 min 250max and would depend on driving habits and % of full power used.They have tested at Mercs plant forgot how many gallons of fuel was used but the total was scary!! There dynos can handle full power 24hrs a day because of the cooling towers that cool the superheated water from the brake.. They give a 1 yr warranty which tells the true story.

The motors are the real deal. LONG rebuild intervals and 1 yr warranty at over 1300 hp on pump fuel with a stronger drive... We ordered a pile of them at the Miami Show.

Seems like more sarcasm from Ray. As someone who is thinking about a set. I can tell you that I am concerned about how long they will run before rebuild.
I also spoke with Fred at length. He wouldn't give me an exact hr. number. But said valve adjustment and maintainance would be 1/2 of 1075's. And total time before rebuild would be 3 times the 1075, with a minimum of 250hrs.
Most people I know of are getting about 125 hrs before any lifter issues. So I think 300 is a no brainer. We all know Merc is conservative with their numbers.
Also, these motors had been run many, many hard hrs in Mercs test mule boat before the show. They are also being run in a couple of other boats that I know of now. So, Most of the bugs will be worked out before given to the public. IMO

Sweet i dig looking at your parts room pics!..

I think everyone cares about rebuilds and money, I cant think of anyone that i know of substantial wealth that doesnt weigh out the spending of big money, if they threw it away on whims, they wouldn't have that wealth. Merc hit a grand slam home run with this pkg.

Gino, I think the 400cc implant has a longer rebuild interval!

I am kind of a visual type of guy, maybe we need to start a comparison thread.

They're just like your engines once you have the 400's you want the 600's then the 800's.
