@200HP Outboard

Hi all

Not been on for ages, years in fact, life and lack of spare cash have just got in the way of going boating.

The Nashers Revenge has been hardly used for 3yrs, but has also been wrapped up well.

She does however need a new engine, which is part of the reason I stopped using her so much in the first place, so itís sadly time to move on my beloved DT200EFI with itís fantastic sound, sub 200Kg weight, and relatively easy to work on electronics.

I have two constraints, budget and weight, both obviously, so Iím looking for a 200HP small block 2-stroke such as a first generation ETEC or Yamaha HPDi.

If anyone has something available, or knows of something that could be suitable please let me know.

Thanks

Nasher.

Hi Nasher, there's a 225 Evinrude for sale over on Boatmad, Sam1cats is selling for 400 quid, might be worth a look see. I don't know anything about it but noticed it yesterday. I think he may also have a 300 but I might have got that wrong.

Welcome back btw.

Welcome back nasher.

Would you consider 150hp? Have details of 2000 Evinrude Ficht with full service?

You should sent a note to the guys at Clyde Outboard Services and Yampower in case they know of anyone who's repowering this year.

Thanks Guys.

I do want to look at something along the lines of an ETEC or HPDI, the DT200EFI is actually quite fuel efficient at lower speeds, and if I think spending a few hundred quid on another really old engine that I don't know the history of could be worse than persisting with the DT which I know really well.

I know I said I'm on a budget, but I'm talking £2-5K, so still nowhere near new engine money.

I'll try Clyde and Yampower as well as a Quinquari who always seam to have a few used ETECs about, and will have a look on Boatmad.
I'm in no rush to do it this season even, so can bide my time for the right deal.

The Ocean is a really heavy hull, being commercial based, so I'd really like to stick with a 200, but have to watch the weight.

Nasher.
