Agreed, that's why I'm wondering, plus, 22k per side....not to mention other upgrades etc...every 70hrs, that's absurd...at 1075, 1200-1400s are lasting ATLEAST that long now...

Don't go with the "it's the cost of boating" I've had 1350s that have lasted with no issue few years ago...there's no reason to spend absurd amounts because merc decided you need to.

I'm just curious how the hydraulics are holding up.
