Well, Andre has bravely volunteered to fit not one, but two of Mercury's new Verado outboards to one of Parker's 9m RIBs. Can't remember what size though.

Time to visit Poland I think!

I wouldn´t hold your breath for that delivery time. Mercury can´t deliver them fast enough for the USA market, and they´ve just been launched in Australia!!

Also heard a rumour that they are experiencing gear box problems, but it is just a rumour so we´ll have to wait and see!!!!!!!!!!!!

And then of course there is the cost of them, $20k I´ve been told!
