Would the hood of your......

.....Mercury fit a Mariner Optimax ? I'm looking at a 135 Opti Mariner but don't like the hood - I know - I'm a d**k head, however could I put a Merc hood on the Mariner and how much would a new hood be ?

Don't encourage him for Christ's sake Louise - he'll be trying to fit a Searider hull to that poofy French boat next

I do agree about the engine aesthetics, though. Mercs look a lot sweeter than Mariners, that's for sure. Probably why they charge 3% more for them!

Shouldn't you be fitting some sort of crap French engine in keeping with your boat MeMe, maybe a Citroen or Renualt then you could rename the boat to Sophia or Zanadoo or some other silly crap name.
