Fantastic! Glad to hear how well the 25 does. Perfect for you and the kids. Have a great summer!

So what was the final build hours to launch?

Have not totaled this month yet but right around 1020 hrs. Kinda high for a zip, minus the stereo, trailer modifications, stainless and outboard repair quite a bit less.

Congratulations and great pictures! :D

Everything would be perfect except that it looks like you're out of gas.

Congratulations! Can't wait to see the video.

Thank you! It was definitely low but plenty for a systems check.

Thanks matt! I am very impressed with the 25hp! I am keeping it, all doubts about wether or not it would "cut it" are gone.....

Thanks Mike, i am super pleased with the outboard, my younger brother is a marine tech at a local dealer, when i told him about the year/make/model of outboard i am running his eyes lit up! He said those are the strongest running two stroke models merc ever made and would outrun any other make of the same hp during the mid 90's to early 2000's..... dumb luck i guess but I'll take it!
