Standard? Nothing's standard! Hell, the tach is $163.
Ah! Hours, I'd forgotten about that one. Probably be more useful than the rest I'd guess, since I don't imagine I'd drag it down to the dealer just to check the hours!
Bought a trim gauge for the Merc, not realizing that it didn't have a sender.
Maybe I'll leave it mounted and see it it gets hooked up. Don't really think it's too much use though, Trim is about the feel of the boat. The question was what to fill that hole with.
Wife doesn't know yet, but I'm planning on the 90.
Still sort of having 2nd thoughts, as one of the techs pointed out that the old 80 hp was more like a 65 hp measured at the propshaft like new engines vs. the flywheel. The 75 is actually a small bump in output. I'm rationalizing just a tad to justify the 90. It's only $800 more. But to the wife, it's just $800 more. Funny how it's so different depending on how you say it!
I suspect she thinks a 40 or 50 would be enough
