Reviewed briefly (with the 225hp model) in MBM Aug 2001 issue. The feature I really like is the flushing system - a port high on the engine to which a hose is connected. Simple really - is it a first? No more messing around with muffs.

Thanks for the replies. Interestingly, this motor is not to be available--or is not yet announced--in Canada. A dealer in British Columbia called his national distributor and was told that there is no F60. The F60 is listed, however, in the 2002 USA catalog. I live right near the border and shop both countries, sometimes taking advantage of the different currency values.

The system you described for the Yamaha is an old one. The use to put this port near the impeller for years now. Anyway I am not sure if the impeller gets damaged due to running dry. Have in mind that the water flow by that port is LESS than the one by the mufs. I always use the mufs instead.
