Just pulled the trigger on a pair of these for the Ottercraft. It wasn’t really in my immediate plans but things sort of led me down this path. I was doing maintenance on my 2006 Honda 150’s and decided I was going to take off the injectors and have the injector doc do their thing, as the starboard motor was running a bit rough at idle. Kind of on a whim I decided to do a compression test on them first. Port engine perfect, starboard engine good except for 1 dead hole. Faaaaaak. I called around to check on rebuild and new powerheads and was disturbed by potential costs and time frames to get it done. Being underpowered anyway I decided to look for some bigger used motors. Found a decent deal on some older lower hour Honda 225’s in Oregon but after internet searches on these motors and consult with Goatram I decided against them. Now I don’t really get depressed but according to my wife I was in a funk and a bit moody. I kept thinking the rest of my fishing season was going down the toilet. I finally decided to check on new repower costs and went into a bit of a tailspin for a couple more days. After talking to the family and some soul searching I decided to do it. I have to tell you I gave 3 WA dealers a shot as well as 3 Oregon dealers. Two Oregon dealers were neck and neck but they both were substantially cheaper than WA dealers even with me doing the rigging in the Wa quotes. Sportcraft Marine in Milwaukee Ore beat the best WA quote by a good amount with complete rigging included. Props to Sportcraft Marine. They seem very knowledgeable about their products and easy to deal with. Now the trigger is pulled I am pretty pumped to be getting a well powered boat in time for Summer Kings. I will be towing the boat down to Sportcraft a week from this coming Thursday!
