Not for you

My Opti is not a good combination with the Searider. Its too heavy and fkks up the balance of these great boats same goes for ETEC and Merc/Mariner 2 or 4 stroke 90's . For me it's a Yammie 2 stroke 90 or 70 or 4 stroke 70 (extremely light) in that order. If I had to go 4 stroke 90 then i'd put a Suzuki on unless somebody is making a lighter one nowadays.

Plenty of people on here will tell you I'm wrong I wont argue with them.

Wow, I'm truly stunned by the quality of that. Didn't come from CAN trailers did it?

Opti 75 and 90 are fat, heavy old beasts. Get something lighter!
