    Default Any Verado owners out there?

    Been researching 4 stroke outboards lately....

    I've always been a Honda and Yammy guy, but the Mercury Verado looks like a heckuva motor; quiet, powerful and efficient.

    The fact that it has a digitally controlled throttle and shifter is a bit concerning. I read that this has to be all laptop installed by a Merc Verado tech. I'm wondering if this is simply too much technology.

    I can get my hands on a great deal (60% off) on a non-current crate Verado 150hp...
    'Course those Smartcraft controls are spendy too.

    Advice appreciated!
