Well..there was no 500 HP Mercury V8 outboard, or a more powerful Verado 400R introduced at the Miami Boat Show yesterday.
Years of speculations about this came to an end. Instead a boxy looking Merc 3.4 liter V6 was all we got.
I am disappointed and suddenly the cleanest EPA approved outboard ever…the 3.4 liter V6 Evinrude G2 is looking extremely good..

Lots of interesting comments here, check them out..

Finally Evinrude Outboards have a new leader and the future looks bright again.

Most people know I was very disappointed with the old top management/marketing at BRP Evinrude Division.
The new leader for Evinrude Outboards is Tracy Crocker and he hit the ground running making changes since almost day one. The old Marketing guy is gone. Improving production quality is top priority and 10 year warranty.
Tracy and Krista Sparks is going to be a good team.
Please watch this video for Evinrude dealers.

Francois Salabert of France.
This is from Leon, Spain.
The first race in the F1-V8 series 1982. This was also Francois first race with the same V8 power as the other two JPS boats driven by Tom Percival and Bob Spalding.
Francois did extremely good and finished second in this race with his brand new #12 Velden Racing/JPS/Johnson V8 3.5 liter 2 stroke looper.
Yes, I was there racing F3 and did little bit better than Francois.
