    They would like any business be trying to minimise their costs.You could put money on it that running those 4 strokes over the etecs is cheaper overall for them with the usage and hours they do. For the average joe like us i think it would be personal preference which way you'd go.

    What's the biggest issue people have with smell in your experience mate?Do they get ill?Sea sick? Fumes don't bother me at all and don't even notice to be honest even in my old tech outboard. I would have thought in the big cities and towns their would be sufficient qualified,competent outboard mechanics to deal with E-techs at a reasonable distance from most peoples homes.If you live away from those areas then i wouod think you would have to travel. In regards to taking the word of any tv host,sales person.......I agree that theres plenty of gullible people out there and you would be an idiot not to do your own research. Im betting they're would be a high percentage of boaties that dont even put 50 hours a year on their engines. Cheers.

    I wasn't offended mate.Just found it amusing how spending a whole minute pre-mixing is seen as a big deal by some that's all.

    Lol.Im still in the Jurassic period then mixing my own oil.You blokes make it sound like it takes half a day to mix the oil with fuel and need a massive factory to store the oil in.lol. If i bought a new engine etec would be my choice too.Second hand either would suffice.

    Cheers guys,the fantastic weather and time spent with my boy made not catching anything worthwhile insignificant.I reckon if your 23 year old son wants to go out fishing with you instead of hanging with his friends you've done something right as a parent.

    Nice boat mate.That trailer looks like its a little small with your boat overhanging the rear like that but obviously does the job.

    One thing i know is its always better to flush your engine,wash trailer,boat etc if possible before the sea water dries leaving caked on salt behind. The easiest is washing/flushing all above at ramp on launch/retrieval.
