What's all this about accountants?
I'm an accountant.
I have a 2 stroke 70hp Johnson - noisy, thirsty but goes like a train, hates idling.
I have a 4 stroke 70hp Suzuki - can't hear it, great fuel consumption, idles all day.
If you want to roar around pulling skiers etc., and have deep pockets, get the two stroke
If you like peace & quiet, bit of fishing perhaps, or are tootling around doing safety boat or harbour work - get a 4 stroke.
And stop slagging accountants...we have feelings too you know!
Tax is paid by mortals
