Magazin: Motor Boat & Yachting Russia. Micro-yacht - Grizzly 860 Firestorm
Magazin: Motor Boat & Yachting Russia. Micro-yacht - Grizzly 860 Firestorm Two years ago during the exhibition SPIBS 2014 our familiarity with Grizzly 860 has happened. We just have tested another modification – Grizzly 820 with outboard motor Mercury Verado SCi (Racing) of 350 hp (read the article “Thunder and Lightening” in MBY #1/31, 2015). Since that time “Grizzly Technologies” has faced with an interest of potential purchasers to the same model but with stationary diesel engine. First of all it has been a demand from south regions, namely from the Volga region, where people go on boat for a long distance and have a need in speedsters. In such way Grizlly 860 Firestorm was born – a new flagship, even more comfortable for family rest on water.

Water jets Mercury
Water jets Mercury Water jet outboard motors are traditionally in short supply in Russia. If to talk about Mercury, in official supply there were only two models – of 20 and 40 hp. Nowadays these two-cycle motors discontinue the line, and  can be bought only on demand. Besides not wide range of Russian companies develop this theme at their own risk, exchanging underwater part of traditional motors with screw propeller into foreign  water jet attachments.
Mercury 9.9 - Operational test of Yukon
Mercury 9.9 - Operational test of Yukon To weigh the advantages and disadvantages of the new building or the engine and to give some recommendations to knowledgeable and meticulous reader is possible with no doubt only during long-term operating and navigating test. That is why “KiY” readily responded to the unexpected proposal of the American company «Mercury Marine» to conduct field tests of their new inflatable boat“Mercury 310”with a four-stroke engine of 9.9 hp. This boat was to be used in high-latitude expedition in the Canadian portion of the Yukon River - the fifth largest artery in North America.

Mercury released an outboard six-cylinder Verado engine of 300-hp
Mercury released an outboard six-cylinder Verado engine of 300-hp The standard 6-cylinder Verado models include an electrohydraulic steering.

Only electrical cables, but no cables or rods are connected to the  motor.  Control is made  by "one finger", very smoothly, effortlessly and backlash.
35 hours with Mercury 40 motor
35 hours with Mercury 40 motor 40-horsepower two-stroke Mercury engine has been selected for the next long-term tests on its "measured mile". Fresh model «40ELPTO (2)" had all the modern systems: oil injection, hydrorakes, electric starting, fuel recycling, etc. We stopped on the power of 40 hp for two reasons: the first one is mentioned in the editorial introduction to the number, and the second - is dictated by the permissible capacity on the motor boats - a "Delta-T", which was tested at the same time (see KiY number 184.). Two-stroke rather than a four-stroke model was chosen for reasons of greater affordability and  familiar to ordinary powerboating driver, and most importantly - lower weight, which is important for easy installation on motor boats. Not the last argument was the ability to refuel with AI-92 fuel.
