I wouldn't get too hung up on new. There are some great used boats around 5m for 9k or less.

I've had a look at the mariner 60hp outboards as there seem to be some very good deals around on them (around 3.5k new) for the two stroke but it seems to me that 2 stroke is 100kg and 4 is only 112kg. Would that amount really make a huge difference.

What difference in fuel consumption would there be between the two as they are quite small engines. Does anybody have any fuel consumption data for either of them.

Thanks

Andy

Depending on boat-

1 Litre per n mile 2 stroke - 60hp

.5 litre per n mile 4 stroke - 60hp

We have 60hp Mariners normally in stock @ 2500 ish, normally under 10 hours use, these normally go out on a fully kitted up 5m Humber, Roller Trailer, A frame etc for 9995

Sounds like a great price for the mariner, is that for the 2 or 4 stroke.

How do you think the weight difference would affect a small boat.

Thanks

Hi Andy

2 Stroke, weight difference would have minimal effect.

Keith @ Llyn Marine is doing great deal on E- Tecs - http://www.llynmarine.co.uk/evinrude-e-tec.html mention my name for good deal.

hi Andy

You may want to take a look at Liverpool Power Boats. The 5mt aircraft ribs have been in production for years. They have been used as rescue boats for many local companys on the Mersey and rest of uk, seem to be bullet proof!. I know he's got three in stock now, one without console. he is also one of the biggest etec dealers.....Give me a pm and I will send you some picys if you want.....
