I've had more trouble with the Merc on my Lund than I think I should. I have a buddy that repowered his houseboat with twin Honda's that didn't make it to 1000 hours.
Not sure what I would buy if I were looking today. I know Captain Nemo likes his Suzuki's, but their service network leaves a lot to be desired. Same with Yamaha.
Guess I just need to win that Power Ball. Then I can just repower when I have trouble.......
Pretty boat by the way. I'd love to have a Ranger.
Hope your buddy finds a new home for it soon.
