I’ve always been a Merc man, but my last boat had a Yammie, and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Probably the way I’d go on my next one.

I’m a Merc guy, but ran a Yamaha. I’ve blown em both up.  Whatever I get next will be a Four Stroke. I’m afraid that two strokes are going the way of the DoDo bird and parts are going to get a lot harder to get in the years to come.

You are right Wes! Our fearless leader at Morristown Marine has been working on my 2003 175HP Johnson and his mechanic has had a really tough time finding parts. Your DoDo reference is spot on. Go with a 4-stroke.

+1 on Merc.  A 150 or 175 would go nicely on that Triton you have in mind.  The business model behind outboard engines will drive the market to 4-strokes exclusively.  No money and no time for maintaining duplicate supply chains.  It's just the smart move.
