mmm your first post was
I purchased a new mercury 150 4 stroke about 4 months ago. This is the all new, non-verado unit. So far, it has been outstanding. Quiet, fuel efficient and plenty of power/speed.
What sets it apart from other four strokes. Large 3 litre displacement, simple single cam design with a timing chain (no belts to change or valves to adjust). All maintenance can be done by the owner... Oil changes are dead simple.
now please forgive me if I am wrong but I see no mention what side of the pond and that your post could be irrelevant and misleading to the original poster as you stated in your last post.
Clyde, your responses are not consistent with what I expect from a "trade member" on this board. Fortunately, I don't live in Scotland. The magazine article you quoted was a review of a different engine.
Hard to compete if you are ignorant of what the competition is offering. If your business relies on lottery funds and juicy contracts for business, Darwin will take care of it.
ok first of all. When someone in the Uk finishes a post with a name it does tend to be their name i.e. in my case Dave.
next: when did I say we are reliant on lottery funds etc. do you just make things up or try and mislead people on purpose? FYI we have all ready done more than we did last year and still have another 3 months to go (feb 1st year end) and it looks like we will have grown by over 50% of which the vast majority comes from leisure users. Oh and FYI I would love to have more "juicy contracts with business as they would be juicy
re the review: The review is less than a year old as relates not to your engine but most importantly to the original posters question as a very rough guide. The fact that you dont trust reviews is your business but that does not mean that others would not find it interesting.
Being ignorant: lol. dealers speak to each other all the time ( and in some cases to often) about what is good and bad about the ranges they sell new and it is their comments I have passed on and I think it is fair to say they dont expect to sell that many as stand alone units.
They do think it will sell though as mercury in fairness have signed up many of the boat makers and they will be sold as package.
