the Mercruiser is not for me unfortunatly the sterndrives are terrible and i just cant take the risk of the engine or leg going wrong, the yanmar's that i have looked at always seem to corrode a lot, have you noticed this? and ofcourse they have the same sterndrives as the Mercruiser.
what price did you get on your yamaha?
how long did it take to arrive?
yanmar are a joke, what has the person done? i hope he gets new engines. i have never seen them corrode like that, they all seem to disintergrate if they are over the age of 5 years or 3,500hrs.
thanks again for your help
