Anyway, pleased to have made you smile this morning. It's always better to have a happy know-it-all rather than a grumpy one
I think the only place an early 300 Merc produced that much horsepower was in the minds of the marketing dept.
Infact, the latest HP525EFI Mercruiser produces 500hp, it says so in their catalogue. And have you seen the size of an American horse, more like a pony.
PS, I'm always a happy1, but never "grumpy"
