    Default anyone else see CC buying indmar?

    Mercruiser tooled their own engines. Copied the GM 6.2L LS blocks, same bore and stroke, cam in block, overhead valve configuration.

    Marine specific engines. They are stout.

    Mercruiser has stated that the new GM LT based engines are unnecessary for marine use with all the complications of direct injection.

    I tend to agree. The GM LS engines are outstanding for power and durability. So they picked a good engine to copy.

    I think mercruiser is the heyday powertrain.

    I donít think they have currently have a 1.7 transmission available, but perhaps easy to make one.

    All speculation until SC announces a drivetrain change.

    heyday uses both mercury and PCM, although their newest model only uses mercury

    Seems like an odd acquisition to me since they don't even use their engines at present.

    There's nothing I love more than seeing giant companies buy other giant companies in a space where shit it already absurdly overpriced.
    Anybody ever wondered if correct craft charges too much, this pretty much says yes, yes they do

    Yea - those that dominate a market segment will dictate the price and try to control the direction of the segment. I see this all the time in software and a company flush with cash. Reminds me of Brunswick Boats buying everything up a little while back.

    Family owned and operated - someone got paid big time . . . . Good for them.

    im not sure if they get any IP with the purchase, but they will definitely get some cost savings. It gives them more negotiating power with the suppliers, which drives their costs down, so hopefully the consumer cost stays the same. It could go either way tho, but usually companies try making money on the cost side, vs just jacking prices.

    Skier's Choice has not had any discussions with Mercruiser and is not changing to them. We are excited about our future with Indmar and Ford. We think PCM's involvement will benefit all involved.
