My vote would be for the Stratos w/a Mercury. My last boat was that same model Stratos and I loved it, but was not too happy w/the Yamaha. I've got a Ranger now and it can't be beat in my humble opinion.

Buy a Ranger ;)....anyways back to the question I would get the Stratos over the Nitro. Do you know what kind of Mercury it is. The Mercury Optimax or any DI (direct injected) motors are typically alot better on fuel usage therefore easier on the pocket and run much cleaner than say an EFI or an older 2 stroke carb motor or are these motors 4 strokes? Motor choice is a pretty important part of the equation when buying a boat..at least IMO.
