True, but is anything you buy secondhand ideal! I was tempted by the 4 stroke on the back, that bottle rack could be removed and another jockey put in it's place.

That was my thoughts exactly .

Iam on it in the morning

Boat may not be quite as tidy as the other one but engine will keep the value up better .

Value aside still not sure which engine is the best to have .
The mariner is 30 kilo lighter and 5 hp more so would have the edge on performance .
Just how much more fuel the mariner is going to use is the question , and what is the actual cost of that over a season . Bearing in mind the other boat wioth the mariner is at least £500 cheaper and more like a grand if I get a deal.
That dealer is unlikely to drop much off his selling price

As a "rule of thumb" if you calculate that petrol is f'ng expensive but not as dear as beer and that outboards drink petrol not beer. Then times it by the cost of the boat, you'll end up with a hang over.

Doh why didn't I think of that When I heven't seen you for a week or two I forget just how f***in clever you are .

I guess what my post meant was
What I said was , forgetting the cost which engine will give the most fun

Oh shit why am I asking ho would choose a 2000 mariner 75 over a 2005 suzuki 70 , I bet nobody stands up and says I

But as rule of a pisco git the price per litre of Jack Daniels when compared to beer is 4 times as much , but cost alone should not be the criteria when the piscosity is many times greater .

So is Jack Daniels the 4 stroke of fine Liquor ,
