    ive got a 7 1/2 evenrude and it started smoking a day ago. i dont think i made the gas to rich except there might have been some excess but I put a 1/2 gallon of gas with no oil in it and it smoked again after coming back off the river. i dont know if theres a bad lower unit or what. any suggestions or anybody know a cheap place to take it in evansville or henderson

    There is a fairly new place in Henderson that works on boats. They left a flyer on my truck one night while I was fishing. If you want the number send me a PM and I'll send it to ya. I don't know anything about them though. It might be worth a phone call.
