I stood next to one of the Merc 150s the other day and it looks HUGE.

Maybe it was just the height it was sitting at as the rib was on a trailer but the first thing that struck me was its size.

Yea get what you mean Alan but having stood beside it on trailer it's imposing. But I think it's the smooth curves plus of course the black

it is a cracking looking engine for sure and certainly looks the biz on that yellow RC.

also interested in performance info on a rib. my old 100 mariner efi 4 stroke was very very frugal but it did lack torque, sure this will not be the same with the capacity.

cheers
