There are a select few who know of the countless motor troubles I've had on my papaws 20 year old boat. I have finally decided to bite the bullet and get rid of it and buy anew one. However I need help deciding what outboard should power my boat. I want a boat with a 150 hp. Best bang to my buck. Should I do an e-etc, merc optimax, or a Yamaha? Any first-hand details on cost efficiency, fuel consumption, top end speed and maintenance are greatly welcome!
