    Boat Outboard needed

    If anyone knows of any good deals on New Outboards - in the 115-175hp range
    OR - a known good used late model motor in same HP range

    Just found out my E-Tech 200HO has corrosion issues and could be 6K to fix.
    Thinking - could be wasting coin on it if other issues develop in future as it is 11 years old and has been in salt water permanently all this 11 years (have done less than 600 hours but)

    Models I am considering at this point are

    EVINRUDE G2 150 or 175
    Honda BF135 or 150

    Time for a drink :-((((((((((((

    Talk to the boat dealers over here. Some of the water taxis trade their old motors regularly.

    I hear ya
    But to be fair - my Evenrude did do 10+ years - whilst sitting FULL time on mooring in SALT water - never flushed with saltaway or fresh water - I also was not crash hot about servicing it on regular basis :-(
    Few around me here in Sounds have the E-Tec 90's on Sutees - very happy chappies

    What ever you decide on make the move before the warmer weather arrives and your bargaining power is diminished, plus the drop in the $ starts to show.
