Doesn't a Mercury 300 produce 300hp anywhere? Not even at the crank?

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.

Dirk

PS, I'm always a happy1, but never "grumpy"

You don't think that at 300hp, it might just be listed in the High Perf catalogue!

Nah - It's just for cruising!

OK Dirk ... You win!

I didn't know that there was another catalogue. I shall look out for it at Southampton.

Regards,

Chris.
