Any comments?

Does anyone have any experience of this engine (2003 model)
I've heard different views so far and wonder if anyone would care to comment. ???

i just got one!!!! the saltwater edition

will let you know when i get it on a transom.

Seems to be confusion over pick up from two to four cylinders.

I'm not an expert on the 115, but apparently the one that picks up on the carbs is'nt very good.

mercury optimax 115

Used the new 115 optimax on a 6.2 metre Valiant in October, i thought it was a great engine. It had more power and grunt than the Yamaha 115 two stroke, better fuel economy and very quite.

The new Mariner / Mercury 115 Optimax is a 3 cylinder (in line) 1500cc block.

Will be collecting mine on Saturday..............should push the boat along a little faster than the current one.
