I'm getting the impression that the Evinrude might be a bit of a Marmite engine.
I can see the weight advantage of the larger models, but at 50/60hp they are a similar weight to the 4-stroke alternatives. Is the extra torque really that noticeable, and is there a fuel consumption (including oil cost) penalty?
The no servicing for 3 years is attractive, but are they as reliable as the Yam/Suzi/Honda engines?
One more thing, I can't find prices online. Every dealer just says 'call for best prices'. Are they comparatively expensive, or is it just a case of they'll do all manner of deals to shift them?
