Thanks for the info, keep it coming on other ribs/engines as well.

I do find it really strange that this info doesn't appear clearly on the respective websites.

Anyone know what the Ribeye warranty is?

Be careful with the conditions on the Mercury & Mariner 5 Year Warranty.

You have to be spot on with the servicing and witerising at a Merc or Mariner dealer. The hours are restricted to 500 I Think.

Is it possible to pay extra and have a dealer warranty like you used to do on cars?

Na, hours are only limited for commercial users. I think they are very good on their warranty. I have done claims for engines with no service history and never had a problem. They are getting more hot on it these days particually on major components. But i would say they are pretty good. They usually ask for the info from ecu's to check the have not been running on water, overheating etc etc. I have heard Honda are really hot on that sort of thing but probably just from one persons experience!

I have a 2008 Valiant.. (chosen for other reasons) and they proclaim this

"New 10 Year Valiant Fabric Warranty

For 2008 Valiant has Increased their Warranty on Akron PU Fabric to 10 years on Fabric and air holding seams. This Warranty is understood to be the Industries longest Guarantee. "

I can confirm their tube work looks and is excellent HTH
