    Does anyone know what price range current outboards are going for? I may possibly be looking to repower a boat (not my current boat) this winter and would like to know what to expect before I start calling around. 250s are most likely what I'd be looking at.

    Jacobsen's gave me the best deal I could find anywhere on Evinrudes as well as a discount because it was a Grady Repower. 10 yr Warranty. Around 14K for 200H.O. G-2. Plus Tax and misc.

    How much cheaper were they than the competition? That's a pretty good deal.

    Suzuki 250’s can be had for 15-16k
    Yamaha’s 18-19k
    Honda 17-18k

    Don’t by mercs or etec’s if you actually ever want to go fishing. They are complete fucking garbage.

    Plus rigging. For 2 stations with gauges budget 4-6k

    Crazy deals from Florida. Oregon dealers are no tax if you are a cash buyer. @DaKanati did new zukes with rigging for 36k if I remember correctly

    I looked into Florida and Oregon and got a better deal here. I really like the G-2. 500 hrs between services. 260 hrs and so far no trouble and 15 gph @ 25kts

    For anybody who puts serious hours on a boat there is no advantage to evinrude. The cost of the oil outpaces the marginal if any fuel savings. I know a few guys, 1 by choice(worst choice of his life, believed the hype) and another by default on a leased boat who charter them. Constant break downs and missed trips. Both will never be associated with those motors again.

    You can have your etec, and 500 hour lower unit services. I will take a well designed Japanese 4stroke that runs to 5,000 hours that I can depend on day in and day out.

    I’m in the buying provess for a pair of Suzuki df200s as we speak. Priced Oregon and Florida. Money to be save is marginal considering prop exchange options etc. I am getting the pair of 200s with drive by wire dual station and a 9.9 highly thrust for 37k.

    Anyone have a Suzuki 9.9? I have been on 2 different boats that have that motor and both sing when trolling. Some kind of harmonics thing with them . Really annoying.

    No singing on mine. Love mine so much, kept it through 3 different boats. Biggest thing for me was I worked on it so I know the motor instead of buying another used and crossing my fingers

    We have a 20hp on ours and have been happy with it for the year we've had it. My only complaint is the throttle doesn't like to stay put and hold a steady speed sometimes. Haven't ever noticed any singing going on. Would certainly take it over the problematic Yamaha we had on the last boat.

    Both boats I was on with the 9.9 were tin boats so maybe that is what it is.

    The harmonics are due to a restricted plate in the intake. I was told you can remove it. My 9.9 doesn't make any noise currently.

    I bought a 9.9 suzy this past spring and I absolutely love it. It doesn't sing to me, although I do have the same issue with keeping a consistent speed while trolling. I found that if i rev it up just past where I want it to be, it will drop a bit and hold at the right speed.

    Even without paying sales tax in Oregon the money saved is marginal??? Yeah, yeah I know you're supposed to pay the tax regardless but......

    Pete's correct. The 9.9 has a restrictor plate that has some issue.

    This is my biggest issue. I've tightened the screw down more than should be possible. I need to get serious about building a remote linkage control so I can run it through a Raspberry Pi or something...
