Re: Any experience with Mercury 3.0 TKS with alpha sterndrive?
Dale--I believe that motor is discontinued, or soon to be, due to emissions regs. Might not matter as an individual powering or repowering a boat, but as a builder, it may be a concern.
I have run this motor in a lot of small boats. Its reliable, dead simple, fuel-spark-air type motor. At one point there was an issue with the carburetors starving for fuel in high speed/banked turns. But that was some time ago.
There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.
