    If it's such "ground breaking technology" why does it only come with the same "standard 3 year warranty" as my crappy 20 year old automotive based 7.4 liter sterndrive :)

    Wasn't the 3.7 literally a HALF of a 7.4?

    That was a "ground up" design by Merc also? I had one in my '88 Regal. Not a bad motor, despite that wacky charging system.
