I currently own a bombard aerotec 380 with a Yam 15hp 2 stroke short (37kg). I am selling the Yam 15hp to upgrade as the max rating for my aerotec 380 is a 25hp.
My dilemma is this......do i go for the Yam 25hp 2 stroke short (50kg) good used condition from a dealer/12 months warranty, or do i go for a mercury 20hp 4 stroke short (52kg) brand new from a dealer/5 years warranty. The dealer tells me that the mercury is being used by a lot of race teams and is the engine to have in this class and is also performing better than some 30hp. Ive compared all the pro's and con's of 2 and 4 stroke and still cant decide. I am looking for some much needed advice and knowledge/experience on this issue....where better to look than Ribnet forum
