Erm.... having seen some of the crap salesmen come out with does anyone know if Mercury actually give their sales guys any training on it?
Might be worth asking a marine engineer or a dealer's mechanic. I've seen (on older mercs) differences including stainless driveshafts rather than mild steel. Could this be the case on the saltwater opti's?
I should point out I've never worked on an opti so all of this is conjecture but it's always worth finding out small details-they can make a massive difference if your leg won't come off for service!
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
