Mercruiser 3.7LX

I just wanted to let you all know that, in spite of people being afraid of these engines and thinking they are too small for such a big boat, that these actually perform quite well. My boat cruises at 24 MPH while burning only 10GPH. It also takes very little time to plane out versus my friend's 28 Regal with twin 5.0LX's. I recently (well last summer, as it's winter right now) had 10 adults on it to go for an "idling cruise" around Sandusky Bay, when one of the guys said..."punch it and let's see what this bi**h can do! I said that it had 10 adults, 2 four cylinders, and no working trim tabs, that it probably wouldn't do much. He said to go ahead anyway...I did. His response? "Wow! This thing's fast. And, you didn't even have to re-position people!"
