My 150 merc was almost perfect except for the plastic exhaust ring. What if your prop was bent after it left Mercury? Is that Mercury 's fault? If your prop is a problem, call Mercury. They may...

Well said. I have none of these issues and I probably run my boat harder than most.

I'd like some video of a pontoon in true 3' waves. I haven't been on pontoon in those conditions but be hard to imagine waves not rolling over front deck. Report back on how it does.

Make sure you retorque the prop nut. I usually have to retorque at least once or I get vibration/noise.

That wide hull footprint also hurts rough water ride. There's reason many center console offshore rigs have sides that narrow down to make hull skinny on bottom. My personal experience in boats from...

He had a 1997 fiberglass and a 2014 crestliner so between that and YouTube he has all the answers. I'd rely on someone's word that stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night over this guy. Still...
