Well, we went and looked at the Yamaha today. It is about 4 or so years old, and is a 55 hp 2 stroke. It was winterized when taken off the boat about 2 years ago, and has been sitting covered since.
Does anyone know if this is the same transom weight as the yamaha 50? Would a 55 be too much for my 4 meter? 5 hp is a lawnmower, so I doubt it would be too insanely much more?
The guy wants between 1700 and 1900 American for it. Do you guys think this is a good deal? It is basically broken in, has 15 maybe 20 hours on it.
It does not have power trim or tilt that I can see, is this a big disadvantage?
