If I was shopping right now, I'd talk to Eddie Young. From what I have read, he will build you a motor then make sure it runs "right" in your boat.

That is what I was getting at, glad somebody agrees with me. I can't believe the people that just say mercury is the best without even giving thought to any of the other stuff out there
