Come on, you know you want a nice new Mercruiser in that U22. Sure that underpowered romantic flat head sound is perfect. The simplicity of fixing it with a hammer and screw driver. Sure it can blow a gasket faster than your wife after she finds out you bought another boat. But a new engine can have its own hell. Like all that safety crap that can make you break down for little reason. Or over power and a loss of the true feel and smell of the classic boat experience. Not to mention at boat shows, not all that respected. Should they be? What if you take modern power and at least attempt to make it appear to be period. Painted the correct color.. That sort of thing. I will say that I wont own an outboard boat without modern power. But a U22? So bring it on. Let your secret desire for modern power out! You know what to do!
