Since you agree with the rest of my list and state its correct. You may start researching hearing aids. You could probably find a black one so you can color coordinate with your boat.

My ProXS DID bring down the hot neighbor the other day when I was washing the boat. She said she heard my motor... Too bad she wouldn't have heard the yamis :smoking

Now, to get this thread back on track I will address your statement like this: I don't give a ratz **** about Louisiana and South America and Commercial fisherman with their Japanese anchors. In the world of v6 2 stroke outboard engines, Mercury is king. The 135/150/175 Opti's in particuar are extremely reliable. Everyone has anectdotal evidence about "a friend" who's Merc blew up but I know of at least 3 Yamaha's that have blown powerheads in the 4 years that I have owned my 175 Proxs. I've had to replace a few coils and it's never left me stranded nor did the 135 opti I owned for 3 years before that.
Now if you want to argue about smaller engines then I will offer no resistance. If you want to argue about 4 strokes then go right ahead because putting a 4 stroke on a flats boat is **** and I can't argue with **** or people who choose an engine based on how much noise it does or doesn't make.(sorry old guys, just ribbing you a bit)

Well the last few times i was in Venice pulling crab pots and workin on the skrimp boats (2 weeks ago)......... i didnt see one Etec at Venice marina.I think most of the captains that were using "any" motor during the "over hyped" oil spill pretty much canned them after they were done working for BP....and now most if not all are running all new boats with variuos types of new motors on them.Bp pretty much paid all the captains (both inshore and offshore guides) some serious cash. Enough cash to were they are all sporting new Lake and Bay Bay boats ...and the offshore guys are sporting Yella Fin 36 with trips and new 30 something foot Invincibles.
