    Mercury's official release is not until May 18th, I can not talk about or price the engines out of Racing until then.

    The only ones that show they're in stock right now are the 300 Torque Master versions. All others show an availability date of January 2019?????
    Not sure i understand !
    You can only get a 300 Sport XS with torque master Until January 2019, Then the rest will be available.??

    Also do you know the weight of the V8 300 ??

    It will be interesting to see what Merc Racing does...and even the regular 250's for that matter. I've owned 4 SHO's and loved all of them.

    From what they sent me, we can still order all of the 250 and 300xs engines until July 2nd.
    I was just saying all but the Tourque Master 300's are on B/O right now. Hope they just have the date of availability wrong?????

    I think an old 350 Chevy V-8 weigh's about 700 lbs. but not sure.

    That's' what confused me----Can order until July but wont get it until next year !!! Guess that's one way to sell the new V-8 if they become available.

    Are these new 4 stroke Merc motors the ones I've been seeing on TV commercials? Kinda squared off cowling? Advertised as Mercury's new 4 stroke lineup.

    Those are the 3.4L V-6 up to 225HP motors. The 250+ are V-8 and have not been officially released yet.

    Hasn't the demise of 2-strokes been the talk for years and has yet to happen?

    Emissions law are killing them. So it ends up making more economical since to a company to go the 4 stroke route.

    Weight and price is the big questions. Not sure mercury cares much about our little slice of the pie. Racing division seems to be focusing on big multi engine boats and regular mercury will supply 225s for bass boats. May leave a big hole that forces folks to look in other directions.
