John, the technology is surely there. hands down Mercury is definitely spending their money on research and development. I guess I would need a brand new 40 ft Boston Whaler center console to run a bunch of those monsters.

Imagine a dock buster that you couldn't see what direction you were headed because the top end never moved,, man O man. Get the heck out of the way!!

It looks like Merc is filling a void now that Seven Marine is no long in production.

Just getting used to the lay of this land.

Yeah, I watched the video earlier this evening. In addition to what you stated, it also has a 2 speed automatic transmission. Incredible!

I just read an article showing a new outboard motor that Mercury is introducing this spring. It is a V 12 that develops 600 HP. The motor stays stationery when making a turn. Only the lower unit rotates. There will be two propellers mounted on the propeller shaft. Maybe Marc could put this on his next Clipper project.
