I don't think you can wear out a Merc verado. The one we have spends more time in the shop then running. It has 20 hours on the motor and 3 of 5 times the alarm goes off. I owned Yamaha,Suzuki, Mercury, and Honda. I would buy a Yamaha, Honda, or Suzuki again.The Verado would make a greatanchor.

115 Yamaha on my 18' 1300 # Shipoke.

Sips gas, no oil to add

Super Quiet. When "No Waking" its like being on a sail boat.

Starts up like a car

Pushes boat 42mph, but I cruise at 30

Purchased from Posner. Great people

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">I have a 250 Verado on my 24 center console <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on">Everglades</st1:place> and it?s great. The boat planes out in a couple seconds from a dead stop. I?ve had no issues with the motor; I bought it new in 2006. I actually have to turn and look at the motor when it?s idling to ensure it?s still on it?s that quiet.
