4strokes are for fishing/trolling and people who do long distance.
4 strokes are also for people who like to still be able to talk to each other when cruising at 25 -30 knts, go for a Honda

Why Honda ? Far heavier than the F150 Merc, terrible corrosion issues, much more expensive! It's a no brainer. Get the new Merc from Turbo Diesel. That's impartial too, I'm not on commission...yet

You could probably buy a 150hp Honda with 4 wheels and a boot thrown in for the same money - that's "marine" for ya!

When did 'retail price' ever come into it?

If I was in the market for a new 150, I'd be looking at 4-strokes from Merc, Yam & Soozook along with the Opti & e-tec 2-strokes. (Basically, everything except Honda). Price would be a major determinant, as these motors are all very good. Optis used to be a fair bit cheaper than the others a few years ago, but the gap appears to have closed somewhat in recent times, which makes the decision tougher. With the Opti, a stainless prop & Smartcraft gauges were included as standard back in 2007, while these would have been extras on the others - may have changed since though.
