[QUOTE=punt66;3668035]I couldnt live without a boat! Treat them right and buy correctly then you wont have a money pit. Stay away from any outboard older then 1990. Johnson/evinrude are the most reliable.[/QUOTE
Agree with everything except the Johnson/Evinrude thing. Had a johnson on my last boat......had some issues. New boat Yamaha four stroke f150.....best engine I have ever owned. Quiet, instant start evrytime, awesome fuel efficiency.......I know, I wish it was "made in the USA" too.
