This is cool .... or not....?

"Letís Rumble. This creates an unmistakable throaty rumble thatís been tweaked to impress friends and neighbors and call attention to the new outboards Ė to say nothing of the boatís proud owner. And when it is toggled off, the outboards sounded even quieter than we initially thought. Itís a system that Mercury says has never been offered on an outboard before".

It wouldn't be a Mercury if it didn't sound like a Harley Davidson idling into your fishing hole.



I hate photobucket.

Yes


From what I am reading its only on a Verado edition, Pro XS specifically mentions sportier exhaust sound. Verado mentions advanced sound control.

I could be wrong.

So now we have sound control? That's just flippin' perfect. Goes to the point I make over and over on this forum. For many, catching fish is secondary to looking good trying.

Can someone explain to me how this makes boating safer? Oh hell, just explain to me how it make no difference at all and that it's not promoting unsafe behavior.

What does sound control of the exhaust have to do with safety?

It's not always about fishing. Sometimes people just want to ride around and have fun.
Kind of like the comment "you cant catch fish at 90mph", seems its only the people with the slower boats who say it.
