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.
This new ship here is fitted according to the reported increase of knowledge among mankind. Namely, she is cumbered end to end with bells and trumpets and clocks and wires. It has been told to me she can call voices out of the air or the waters to con the ship while her crew sleep. But sleep though lightly. It has not yet been told to me that the sea has ceased to be the sea.--Rudyard Kipling
