Best engine

Well its happened!.The thieving b@@@___s have taken my engine and i am now looking to replace it.The rib is a 7 meter ring rib and had a 150 four stroke on the back.I am now thinking that a larger unit might serve me better but am unsure as to the best make.Would the Evinrude be a good choice or is there a better make out there?.Thanks in advance

Speak to Ian at Liverpool Powerboats. Top bloke. He's a big fan of Etecs, but is also an agent for Yam and Suz.

Perhaps you could consider moving to avoid losing the next one. Anywhere would do!

RIBase
Definately worth looking at some sort of tracker-system. Seems these larger engines are being exported to Europe so chances or recovery are slim.

Was it taken off the water or from storage? Friend lost his 200 4 stroke off the mooring on the straits in October.
