Which one? yamaha 75hp or Evinrude 75 etec

Hello guys,

I need your advice again
I have found 2 nice second hand outboards.
First, Yamaha 75hp 2 storke from 2012
Second, Evinrude 75hp e-tec from 2011

The price for them is the same...
Which of them I should take? I have Avon searider 5.4

Thanks a lot for your tips.

RIBase
I'd go Etec, the 75hp has a strong reputation for punching way above its weight.


.....sh1t happens.......

No no no PD..
Yam 75. Bullet proof hence the RNLI use em and u know it will work every time.
Also SR s are ideal for 120 kgs of yam. Not the 145 dry weight of a etec. They have a narrow hull and will be unbalanced with this overweight unreliable bit evinrude junk.
Even the new YAmaha four stroke 70s are only 119 kgs so im am suprised that the etec is so much heavier when the etec blurb bleats on about being so light!!
With these new G2 varients they are tring to reinvent the wheel so to speak. They should concentrate making the current stock more reliable..

Whats a tidy 10 year old Yam 75 worth 3k poss ( 5k when new)
What about an old etec ? Scrap poss as nothing would work on it.
Nasty etecs!��
This bloke felt so strongly about the unreliability etc he wrote a song!!

Weight is the more important issue with the SR..25 kgs more than a old proven workhorse is not moving forward with technology at all.. More unreliable and expensive two stroke oil. Its a little more economical than the yam but half the time it will have a lap top plugged into it trying to make the thing run right.
Etecs don't run if its too hot or too cold
If the Spark plugs are 5 degrees out.
If the Battery cable isn't gold plated and done up with a 500lb torque wrench

so

Workshop or playtime??

As an occasional boater I'd always go for the Yamaha. For me they're better known. spares might be more readily available and they have a reputation for being bulletproof. My personal favourites seem to be Mercury/Mariner but I've also had Chrysler,Yamaha and a Tohatsu.
Each to his own but I dislike too much technology, I prefer old school reliability .

Only ever owned one Yam outboard and it had to go. Every visit to the dealer, all he ever said was "sorry part has been deleted","sorry part has been deleted", "sorry part has been deleted", "sorry part has been deleted"...........got sick of having to get parts made for it !
