The math as I see it: Currently spending $1000 tops annually on boat gas. Presumed savings: 30% or $300 plus $150 on oil. (Yamaha says 40% fuel... )
Cost of engine, less trade, including tax, installation etc.: $11,677.00
So, in only 25.9 years, it'll pay for itself!
But I'll be spewing cleaner stuff, be quieter, and (hopefully) nice and reliable.
Mostly, I am also looking forward to a greater range... for delivering cakes to friends that are further away and the like!
