    Hi all, I recently purchased 19'6" classic aquasport. Very nice boat but now I need a new motor. I don't want to spend more than 10k and need a 150 hp. Gonna be used in saltwater. Which manufacture do you recommend as far as performance and value. Yamaha mercury Suzuki Honda or what? Thanks

    Yamaha, Suzuki or Evinrude. The evinrude is my favorite but the 4 strokes arent bad except for maintenance.

    I thought the 4 stroke was supposed to be low maintenance

    4 strokes actually require more maintenance than 2 strokes, they need oil changes, valve adjustments, etc. With emissions how they are its getting harder and harder to buy 2 stroke engines.

    Honda all the way! That's what we have for our 14 footer. Reliable and efficiently, just like their cars.

    Also 4 strokes don't have as good of a hole shot as 2 strokes.

    My 1991 Mercury 175 has been a great motor! I've had it & the boat six years.


    Have you looked at remanufactured motors? You can get a much better deal & they come with warranties.

    Years ago I found a company that sold remanufactured motors & always wondered about them. Then I stumbled on the same company selling them on ebay.

    I've heard nothing but good things about the Evinrude E-Tecs and know a few people who have repowered with those rather than going 4 stroke. I'd probably go Yamaha for a four stroke. You could go with a Mercury Verado in a 150 too, although I don' t know too much about them. And probably not going to get one for under 10k. A 150 in general may be a little stretch at that price although I haven't really priced new outboards much. I have a 2001 90hp Yamaha 2 stroke on my 18' Sea Pro. It's been good when the carbs aren't getting gunked up. I'd probably replace with a 115 E-Tec if I had to repower right now.
