New engine

Well newish..

I am acquiring a replacement engine for my 5m Rib, I have been offered a 2002 75hp Yamaha PTT with 100 genuine hrs and a 1yr warranty.

Anyone got experience of these engines. Is that a good deal or what?

I'm also hoping it'll be a bit more responsive than the 1988 - DT65

Neb, asuming its a good price and been looked after then go for it. The Yam should give you many years of trouble free cruising. The slightly bigger versions 85/90 are known to run like a well oiled sewing machine.
