My evinrude ate a piston and we are stripping it down right now, my mechanic friend who has worked on about all the outboards out there likes both etec and yamahas. I did some work for a local yamaha dealer and stopped in today on what a 115 4 stroke $8500 and maybe 500 in misc parts. So if my powerhead is toast (God willing) and I can convince the "ole lady" we will be repowered

Sorry to hear that Doug! Ain't that a nasty sound?

This is an older 'Rude though isn't it? Not the new-fangled E-Tec jobbie?

1994 not the etec model, I am not bad mouthing evinrudes because I was looking at an etec, the Massachusetts environmental cops run etecs and they love them. I am still going to get a hard number on the etec but from what different dealers have told me the yamaha numbers I was given are pretty good

I have been finding the Yamaha's about $500 less than the Etec (on the 150) plus I can use the same cables and controls. I think I'l stil go Etec though. I want the extra "pop" and don't want the weight! From everything I've heard, the Yamahas are good engines as well...

only got a 40hp etec (not like the big big boys toys)but can't fault it.Its as good as the blurb states,i even prefer in to the honda 4/stroke i had before. my only gripe nearest evinrude dealer/service is 80 miles away,thats what you get for living in south wales,a small price to pay.if i was you i would go for it!

On the 115 there only 33 lbs differents. Just need my fat dive buddy lose some weight and then he'll lose some lead. Maybe better idea to go 150

I own an E-Tec 150 HO instead of an Johnson 140 (Suzuki) since 8 months.
excellent, power is awesome ;-) , speed increased from 40 to 49 knots .

I love my tec, everytime I start it and hear the brubble of it I could spend 20 Euros to Evinrude/BRP ;-) .

LOL... That sounds like a quote from an E-Tec brochure! You're not a dealer are you?

I haven't had any time to pursue this this week, but will drag the boat to a couple of dealers next week to firm up trade in prices and then, hopefully, get an order in!
