    Within the next year/ Year and half I think I am going to be in the market for an Outboard. I want to upgrade from my 50. I am going to be looking for a 70-90 HP, preferably a 90. I know its a lot of searching and being in the right place at the right time, but I wondered if anyone had any tips or places to check for good deals on good used Outboards? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If possible try to find yourself a 90 hp 4 Stroke Yamaha, you won't be sorry. I know that's not really answering your question, just my 2 bits.

    Check the outboard classified over on bass boat centeral, or boat trader on line. Lots of deals to be found on both. I have the Mercury Tracker 2003 90hp ELPTO 2 cycle, and even tho I prefer smaller hp outboards I love the Merc 90's. Reliable, rugged, easy to service and easy on fuel.
