Default 7 Marine

Anybody got anything to say about these big bubbas? Think the motors and the company will survive the test of time or are boaters way too traditional to go this route?

I think the engines themselves will prove to be outstanding, but I am still pretty skeptical about the longevity of those lowers. I'd also like to see how they're transfering the power from the engines to the lowers...

Wink Time Tests All

With the high cost of these outboards and the condition of the marine performance boat business at this time ,only time and in use results will determine the real long term value of these new outboard engines.
They look as though a lot of time, engineering and money was put into their development, but as we all know that is not always the only formula for success in performance engine power.
Hope for the best for them and wish them good luck and great results in the future!

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar

Several threads on them already, but to my knowledge, they will not be GA until later this summer.
