My Honda dealer is losing Honda line, and is suggesting the Evinrude E-TECs. I could go up to twin 150s ($$) or down to 115s ....... or the Yamaha 115s that I think would do alright too. ...... but how much speed am I going to lose and/or increase gas consumption from my 130s?
The twin 130s (approx 1000 hours) are fully dealer maintained and have alot of life in them, if someone is looking for a great set up (or possibly separately).

Hi Tom, I am interested as to why your friend is loosing Honda agency?
Is it down to the units he is selling, or what? This is not a loaded question, I am just trying to suss where Honda is going. Its not like The Japs to lessen the amount of units they can unload!!!
