Thanks again for all your thoughts and opinions..........your knowledge is giving me the best chance at success for my application!
I just watched a Russian video on youtube where an Evinrude ETEC 60 was pitted against a Suzuki DF50 four stroke...The Suzuki won!

I watched a pig flying past pulling against a dodo. The pig was on ice and the dodo was propped correctly and won.

I've seen that vid. There's no comparison.There's not even a suggestion that the etec was at full throttle,that they were the same boat,or that they were correctly propped or that they were racing apart from a generic 'vs' in the title.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
