To all,

JK put the thread on fire with this question and we kindly ASK him to post the answer too.
As far as the 200, one thing I know for sure. You must replace the oil every 40 hours of work time. This procedure can not be accomplished when the boat is in the water. It has to be on the trailor.
Thus, replace the engine oil BEFORE your vacation departure. Otherwise.......

Replace the oil?? On a 2 stroke???! Sorry Michael but now I'm puzzled. The HPDI is a 2 stroke engine so no engine oil. What are you referring too?

Yamaha

I'm sure Yam build the mercs to . I think Yamaha , Mercury, Mariner and mercruiser are all from the same company.

HPDi

I have used a 150hp on a 6.5m Tornado and it was a fantastic package. Quiet, odour free as 2 stroke get and very responsive.

A friend (who used to work for Delta) had a 200 hpdi on his 6.5m rib and reported it was best thing he had driven at that power range. Confirm 1ltr / mile at crusing speeds, however, it is a 2 stroke and will drink oil as it goes which can be expensive unless you buy in a commercial drum.

As for Yam as a make, I would take one if I could fin d the preimuim, long-term ease of ownership and reliability are cost that are worth accepting.

Are you sure the Yam 200 / 225hp 4 stroke is too slow for you!?!?
Not much difference in the weight!
Very nice!

yam manufacture

I had the impression that Yamaha build the block for Mariner / Mercury, not sure about the leg, but most of the other components are then down to the brand.

This was certainly the case for 40 - 60hp older models.

Alan,

I'm referring to the latest model of Yamaha. The 4 stroke one. Sorry for the confusion.

It is not evinrude or mercury.

the 200 hpi is a good engine, It provides a good power output and has a fairly steady tick over. The 225 optimax is my fevered but the injectors tend to be a little flimsy in my experience. The 225 ficht is a really good engine but is fairly complex in terms of the engine management system. Even so they have the best fuel economy for around and have a very high power out put, more than the 225 they claim.

Who does produce yamy now

Honda use the mercury leg and spray them silver the woman on the stand at ribex was explaining to me why their legs are better than mercury Ha Ha
