Talking

Only bad motor Johnson/evinrude put out was the 175-225HP 1998-2002 FICHT motor
they say this was the main reason that OMC went under
they had so many problems with that motor it was unreal, from lower units to fuel injectors sticking

also most mercs are yamaaha's just painted black with merc's electronics

Yeah, I'm not sure on the model, but my dad had twins on one the Sheriff boats and they woreout quick.


Pretty sweet though, on the two cherokees they have, GM gives them free engines with free maintaince. I could only imagine the cost at 2boats x2 engines.

Boat = hole in the water into which you throw money.

Money pit indeed. Me and dad think we have an expensive little thing on our hands when out 115hp outboard needs an overhaul. Then our neighbour weighs in on his boating related expenses. He owns about $4 million worth of boat (3 Cruisers and 2 speedboats) and when we spend $2k on ours he chimes in with "my 60 footer costs $15 000 in diesel to fill up"

Wouldn't have it any other way tho, nothing beats taking a group of mates out for a hot summer day on the water. Long as you accept/embrace the giant money hole thing it's all good.

Since this is the boat thread, I have a question. We need a new prop and have been thinking about getting stainless steel one. Someone told us if we hit something we could screw up the motor vs just dinging up the prop.

Also, we have a 3 blade but are thinking of going to a 4 blade since we hear you can get tighter turns and plane faster. What are your thoughts on this or should we stick with a 3 blade?

We have a Searay with the 5.0 V8 and it is 20 feet long.

An aluminum prop does flex more when you hit bottom. It really depends on what area you are boating in if that is a factor. If you are boating in a deep harbor with clay bed, than it's not really a risk.
