Mercury makes jet drive engine/drive packages. They have a special offer of adding four more years to their warranty coverage for those sales over these fall/winter months.

Well, we know Yamaha won't be part of that offer! So that leaves Checkmate, Sea-Doo, and Sugarsand?

Dunno about that. 250hp sounds like seabuddy is talking about an OB powerhead / jet drive combo. I think the NW outfits use mostly Detroit blocks (same as an I/O), not the OB powerheads so much.

Kelly,

I was talking more about the Fishy NW types. Quite a few smaller buiders out there still use the sportjet

I'd much rather have them reduce the price by the retail price of the extended warranty after I negotiate my best price. But that's just me as I think extended warranties are a waste of $$.

RETAIL!

Those things cost them nothing... There is a big mark-up and profit on extended warranties.

Why would they offer a retail value?

If they don't want me to think that they are being rediculously cheap, then retail price of it. I am almost embarrassed, well actually emberrassed, by the current Sea Ray promotion.

This is a Mercury promotion. Sea Ray stopped making Jet Drive powered Boats some time back.
