Mercury F60 EFI engine mounts

I was just wondering how long people would expect said engine mounts to last?

Mine need replacing. The engines just 2 years old and covered 2500nmi (that must be about 200hrs running time). My steering was really sloppy over the four days I spent at RIBEX and I don't think the extra movement helped the mounts but that was only 4 days.

They should'nt have gone after two years, unless the boat gets alot of heavy use like a lifeboat. My mounts are on the way out but my engine is 12 years old. If its the rubber mounts that are worn out it's an engine off job and there quite simple to replace. If the top mounts have come loose there very time consuming (read expensive) to tighten/ replace. What sort of warranty have you got on your engine? I would speak to your local Merc/ Mariner dealer or whoever fitted the engine.
Good luck, at least its the end of the season.
