Well, Mercury just announced their new engines at the Miami International Boat Show: a whopper 350 Verado, a mega-whopper 400R racing Verado, and a huge stern drive. This didn't quite "change the game" for me! I was hoping to see some dramatic innovation in the everyman's horsepower range of, say, 150 to 250, and lighter four-stroke or cleaner two-stroke. I don't know how many customers Mercury sees for these big heavy machines, but I think they forgot about the rest of us!

Anybody want a 350 or 400R Verado on their bass boat?

Very disappointing. The guy announcing was having problems to boot.

The larger engines are probably for the offshore market.

They need to knock about 100lbs off of them if they want to market to the bass boat crowd.

Rich at Hydrilla Gear did just rig up a Bullet 20cc with a 350 Verado though, it will be interesting to see what it will do. I doubt it is any better than a 300xs.

Definitely not an answer to the Evinrude G2. Complacency does not keep consumers.

BRP has done some great things with Evinrude. Sad that you do not have much longer.

I guess we will see, I figure I have at least another 30 years, comparing Evinrude to Mercury is like comparing Lone Star beer to Budweiser
