is it a good engine to live with, starting, smooth tickover and quiet running, do you waterski with it? What year is it?
Can't remember the year but I will have a look tonight. Yep its 4 cylinder, a lot quieter than the mercury 90 I had before. Starts well and ticks over I'm really pleased with it. They come with a guage for revs, overheating, oil warning re low etc and trim control, all you need really.
Easy to work on I'm really happy with it. Can be thirsty at WOT but fine when cruising at around 4000 rpm
I don't waterski, but its pushing a 7m aluminium rib and will make 33mph 2 up with 240 litres of fuel on board. Best speed so far was about 35mph with half the fuel, so no big difference
Hope that helps
