Strongly considering repowering my '98 Sailfish 272. Any members out there with a similar boat who have repowered recently? I'm considering Suzuki and Mercury (Yamaha is a bit too pricey, at least from my local GW dealership) and prefer electronic shift. I have 225s now and prefer to stick with that power. My luck, Suzuki doesn't make electronic shift in a 225hp. Mercury definitely has the weight advantage at only about 50 total lbs more than my old 2 strokes. Suzuki 200s would be around 80lbs heavier and Suzuki 250's close to 300lbs heavier. I believe my boat is rated for 225s so I'd rather not exceed that hp. The new Merc V6s just came out last year. Anyone have experience with them? One disadvantage with Merc is that in white, it'll be at least a six month wait. Any thoughts?
