Default 525 Top Gun?

What do you guys think about the 525's, is that enough power for that size boat?

If 85 MPH doesn't cut it for you, go with more power!

Maybe something like FOUR 540's!

Well, I want 575's, but Mercury really likes them a lot.

Hey Twin Screw,

I have been told by two dealers now that the 525's will run head on all day with the 575's in warmer temperatures. When the air gets cool the 575 are stronger.

Merry Christmas

Thumbs up

Robert:

I have heard that the 525's make more power than the 575's. I like the closed water cooling system too. I'd go with the 525's if I had to do it all over again - BH
