I may be in the market for a new(er) boat and motor towards the end of the year. I don't think I'll be able to go NEW but probably something from the year 2000 on up. I'm interested in some opinions on motors. I know some of this is personal preference but still would like to hear some thoughts. I'll be looking for something most likely in the 75HP to 115HP range. My main considerations are reliability, longevity, & fuel economy, so I'm thinking of the possibility of a 4 stroke. I really don't know much about them though. Will they last as long as a 2 stroke? How would the fuel economy differ from an optimax or the E-tec (although I've talked to a few unsatisfied customers)? Thanks for the help.
