merc 150 4 stroke prices

hey peeps,

I am considering putting one of these on a new rib. i fancy fitting it all myself as i enjoyed rigging them up in the past. probably going on a ribcraft 6.4 at this stage.

i seen a thread a few weeks ago with someone who found good deals....i can't find it via searching.

failing that, anywhere worth looking into?

cheers

If you want a warranty I don't think you can DIY

My trusted mechanic is Winsor Marine and they should be able to advise.

You may be able to rig it yourself but will need a PDI from a main dealer to be eligible for the warranty. I suggest contacting your local main dealer and asking a question.

Could be a tad underpowered for a 6.4 RC as heavy layup.. 200 would be better!!
Rig yourself Dealer to PDI... Mine was pre PDI'D before I picked it up!

The Max rating is 175, 150 should be ample.

Ok, Ribcraft is rated to 150 (i THINK) which is a lighter craft the the 6.4. Worth asking RC what they will actually take.
I have NO experience in the 6.4 or the 150/200 but it does sound a tad underpowered..

You can order it with a sooz 140 or 175, I don't want either.

The rc site says 175hp Max and 90 min for the 6.4. The difference with a merc 150 and a sooz 175 is circa 3k street prices, too much for comfort for me.

If the sooz was decent money I'd consider it but it is OTT for me.

appreciate the applies either way.

cheers
