    Nitpicking on my part, but ...

    "A rotating disc ... never needs replacing."
    I have doubts Mercury. Mechanical moving parts eventually have a life-span. Due to multiple factors.

    "Inherently quiet ... reed valve system deep within the crankcase."
    Another minor issue on my part. With explosions going on the piston chamber, and Jet-Prop exhaust, I was unaware that the reed valves were noisy too.
