Thumbs up

I caught a sneak preview some where on the net and you could not even tell the motor was running. They were testing it on the back of a center console. I think the preview was on the Diamond Marine website. Very impressive piece from Mercury Marine.

My neighbor has Hondas on the back of his boat, when he is out fishing he never turns them off. You don't know they're running and they barely sip the gas.

There is a video on the Merc site. They are driving a bass boat down some channel in Florida (?). The driver is talking normally and you can NOT hear the engine. Of course, you also can't hear any water splash, but it's impressivly quiet.

Here is the link that I spoke of and I stand corrected as it came from the Mecury site. Notice it is being tested as an SOB.

Wow, that looks bad-azz.
If it's as reliable as they say it is, we could have a winner.

Looks cool, but I have to predict failure on this one.
