About 20 marine journalists came together Tuesday in the New Orleans area to test six Mercury Marine engines, including a 370-hp TDI diesel sterndrive and what the engine maker says is the first quad joystick application.

The engines, which range from 60 to 370 hp, were rigged on a dozen boats from 16 to 39 feet. Four Verado 300-hp outboards powered the joystick-equipped SeaVee 390.

Soundings executive editor Chris Landry attended event and filed a video report for Soundings’ sister publication, Trade Only, which covers the marine industry.
