Etec 115 vs Yam 115

Anybody had experience of both of these engines as a single on a 5.5m boat?

I'm familiar with Etecs slaes pitch etc and know the strenghts of the carbed 100.

Not exactly, but close -I have a 90 E-TEC on my 5.4 Searider. Love it, and wouldn't consider a carbed motor nowadays. I haven't had it long, but the E-TEC does seem to live up to its billing, IME.

Search around, you should be able to easily enough find some threads on this.

The Yam 115 is not a carb, personally I'd go for the Yam, not a fan of etecs

Only just got my 115 etec but I can say it is superb and I certainly have no complaints! I have a 5.5M rib and with the etec it is well balanced (167kg on the transom). I think the 115 Yam is >190Kg hence alot a weight for a 5.5M rib!!

according to the dealer she will do +50mph at wot. Based on my experience to-date this is unlikely to be wide of the mark!
The etec 115 (V-4) has unbelievable acceleration and is relatively quiet despite being a two-stroke. The dealer, who is also a Honda dealer, stated it would outperform the Honda 115 (4-stroke) in all departments including fuel economy!!

Agree with Daveboy about the etec, cann't comment about the Yamaha.
Dave you should get the 50mph, I have with 5 up and half a tank of juice(80 litre) it was flat calm. So far very economical will have to do some more thorough checks this summer.

That's impressive our Delta 5.5 with the Yam 100 4 st & 4 blade prop will just do 32 knots WOT. I'm researching it as my project boat will be a Delta 5.5 with an etec 115 on the back. I personally feel the Yam 115 would be too heavy for that boat, even with the 100 its a bit stern down
