yup! basically a brand new take-off with less than an hour of use

Image

did a 100 hr service so i have a baseline of when it was done. this is probably the easiest 4 stroke to service.

Image

and she runs!

Image

all of the engine gauges show on the garmin via the nmea2000 network and a mercury gateway module, if anyone with an older motor(pre-smartcraft) upgrades to a smartcraft capable motor, these are the partnumbers you'll need to let the motor "talk" to your existing n2k network.
- Mercury NMEA Gateway. Part # 84-8M0065208
- SmartCraft harness assembly. Part #: 84-879982T20
- Male to male harness adapter. Part #: 84-892452T01
ordered everything from this site. http://www.veradoclubparts.com/

Looks great on there Aaron, glad it all worked out! What kind of performance penalty do you expect going from the 225 to the 150? I'm actually hoping to do the reverse (150 - 225) in a couple years.

how i primarily run this boat wont change a whole lot. the 225 was just too much for the flatback and WOT i could only get up to about 44 mph before she got real squirrely. the 225 was most happy running around 4200 which was 40mph, which on a flat-bottom boat you cant do all that often. i mostly ran the boat at 30-32mph tuning 32-3500 rpm getting a mere 2.5mpg if im lucky... im hoping for about 43mph WOT, turning 5500, and hoping for 4.5mpg at around 30mph
