Mercury 300xs didn't come into production until 2006 2007. Mercury 300x was been manufactured in 2004.

If they have the Sportmaster lower units, check for water in them. Every 3.0 Sportmaster will get water in it without after market billet seals..... thank Merc Racing for that.

I hate that idiots do **** like that. You are BUYING a airline ticket and taking the time and money to come look and it's not even close to what they say.

People don't give a rats A$$ about other peoples time or money.
