It is funny we have some who are complaining that consumers have more than one option for propulsion!

Outdrives are great...unless you leave the boat in the water full time which I know you do. Then they are just a hassle. And outboard brackets and trim rams similarly corrode and attract growth...you wouldn't believe what I've seen in the Keys on some CCs :o.

Yea I agree two Yamaha 425’s would be a better choice. 

Lol no!  You can almost hang 3 Mercury 450Rs on the back of it for what 2 of those pigs weigh. 
 

That boat would be beautiful without those outboards hanging off the back,  but if I kept it in salt water that’s what I would want.

Mercury is innovating their asses off. The new 150 is rock solid. The new 300 V8 is bad $^&, and the 450R at under 700lbs is crazy. Meanwhile Yamaha releases the 425 and almost 1000lbs lol.

IF  IF  O B was as reliable as the inboard engines ?  Then the weight difference is larger. A O B is complete package.  The I / O is to weigh ALL the drive components Engine to prop. No contest because of the massive shafts & cooling and  lower unit.

Yea I agree the 450r’s are badass racing engines. The Yamaha 425’s aren’t built to be a racing engine. They are built to have a lot of torque and push big offshore fishing boats.

Just when the I/O, outboarrd thing was dying down, here we go.

We’re just having fun now. OP has checked out and moved on to other forums to trash Volvo. I hope he gets a long block from one of the places mentioned and gets back on the water,  but I doubt we will ever know.
