I'm considering the purchase of a boat with a 2002 Merc. 115 2-stroke. I was checking out the manufacturer's decal placed on the mounting bracket which contains the year, serial number, model etc. when I noticed small "void" wording at various places across the decal.
I asked the seller who said he had no idea. He further stated that he's the original owner (I've verified) and he's never had any work done on the engine beyond a tune-up.
I currently own the identical engine (2004) and checked for similar wording on that sticker-nothing.
Anyone have any ideas why "void" may be printed on the decal?
