 You've probably eliminated the best late model 150 4S around in the Merc 150

I've done 396 hrs in 15 months on mine.

 Absolutely trouble free. Good on fuel, and the supposedly underpowered Reefrunner goes really well. That 3 litre block punches above its nominal HP--ya cain't beat cubes? Just on 2 tonne of boat fully fuelled and loaded up just jumps straight on the plane. Stick 300 litres of fuel on the deck plus our gear for the Monties trip and it feels just the same, just uses a little more fuel . Very happy. Would I want more? Well, on those odd glaassy days when you are going a long way and want to cruise over 30 knots, the max 200hp might be nice, but 4500rpm sees around 27 knots, so I'm not exactly slow. Good motors. 

The OP just might have Black Anchor hangover, needs to catch up a bit

Interested in your thoughts on the two Gunnawandai. I've got a 150 Yam but looking at replacing it. I've heard the bigger block of the Merc pops you up on the plane better when loaded down.
