You didn't mention how much you paid, but I hope it wasn't much. Sounds like you just bought yourself a project. My 15' tri-hull has a 100 HP Merc and it tops out around 32 MPH. You have a bigger boat and a smaller motor - you do the math!The Merc in-line 6 engines are very reliable provided that they are properly cared for. Lack of proper care and use can kill them in no time flat. Make DARNED sure that you don't hook up the battery cables backwards or you will be spending several hundred dollars on new ignition components.
