Default merc 350's

has anyone tried em yet? contemplating getting a hull from a friend of mine who's an adjuster just north of galveston. says the market is about to be flooded with boats that got water in the engines, and sustained little or no damage. (before i get a lecture on buying storm damaged boats: he's a childhood friend who wouldnt screw me) would love to hear some feedback other that the dealers. obviously they say the engine is the shit. thanx in advance

i would recommend searching thru some of the post's on www.kingfishconnection.com . being a kingfishing website with members who own everything under the sun. you will find the info that you are looking for. there have been some great debates on this topic with the whole merc vs yam debate.

go to www.Veradoclub.com. The 300's have been VERY reliable. The 350's have not been completely tested yet...

depends on what you want, if you want the fastest out there, go with the vrods, if you want to get out there and back, gowith the yams.

I guarantee rigrunner knows what he's talking about, he just like alot of us are fishing tournaments but he fishes on two boats, one YF with mercs and one Cape with yams......

I've got a few friends running the 350 yams also.....they all have there issues to work out but the merc 300 and 350are too new and still having issues that they haven't worked out yet
