Why is it so commonly accepted that just because a two stroke is lighter the pollution it produces is okay. In an estuary I would say four stroke all the way.

Unfortunately I own a two stroke and wish I could afford a four stroke. The oil sheen I see it leave behind sometimes makes me sad.

I owned a yam auto lube for 3 years, never saw a single thing come out of it. I am sure there was as I pured a gallon or so of oil into the tank, but never saw any, and I looked all the time. Never smoked either...

The 50 yammie is 50D. I have a Mariner 40ML with tiller and remote connections. There is a 55BE also. All awaiting mostly cosmetic works and looking at the power heads less than 100 hours each. I'm toying with the idea of selling the lot this year + my Valiant 450, to finance something else. But just an idea at the moment.

And that is a Yam, as listed above by the OP

Etecs are a sweet motor.
