Me well, I'm well impressed with my Suzi 140 DF. Totally silent on tickover, economical and accelerates great. Also not annoyingly loud on a cruise.

For me I will never willingly buy anything but a 4 stroke in the future.

A bolt holding my alternator sheared today thing is this is located near the drive belt for the compressor so lucky not to damage that or worse still have it bust completely twice its happened now .


Still love Optis and am going to upgrade to a 175 hp at the end of season .

Now my Etec well it just made me alot as my son and I came back from Portsmouth today.

Sorry about that, a minor crisis erupted around me as I was trying to post a sensible point, I just deleted it in the absence of conjoined thinking trouble is, I cant remember what my point was now

I love my 150 opti, and my Suzi 6hp 4 stroke works fine as an aux - and I have used it in real conditions to prove the point. Slow and steady away from danger. Cheaper than SeaStart....
