Greek .... any issues with the "serpentine" belt slipping or coming off while "aggressively" throttling the boat ???

Thanks !

Donzi has a pair in a 38ZR that will hit the water for the first time next week, check with the Aqua Toy Store for price details.

LEOPAJM,

I have not had any problem and I'm also not aware of any problems with the pair Cigarette is running in American Muscle. I am completely satisfied with the motors and would highly recommend them. I do remember there was a problem with the belt on the 1050's a couple years ago that Merc was going to release but nothing with the 1075's.

A friend up here has a pair in a new 43 nortech. Seems the trannies may be a little weak but Mercury is addressing that issue(so I am told)

What is the retail cost of a Mer 1075? Warranty? I saw one on display in Charlotte's boat show a couple of weeks ago......pretty impressive looking!
