Yep. Great, lightweight outboard!
I've got a Polarcraft 1751 with a 50 hp Tohatsu TLDI and wouldn't want any more motor.
My buddy runs a 60 tiller on his, it does a good job duck hunting 3 men and a dog. But, Ive always liked to have more power than I needed.
Thanks for the replies. Went with the Yamaha F70. Yamaha is offering a rebate deal this month, now is a good time to save a few coins on a new one
Great choice, you'll have more than enough power with that engine.
Well got it mounted and payed for this week so took it out for the maiden voyage yesterday.
After the painfully slow break in process recommended by Yamaha, 1 hour at 2000 rpm and then another hour at about half throttle, I finally got to lay into it. Topped out at 43 mph with 2 people in the boat, that's as fast as I need to go!
Can't say enough about how pleased I am with it. The thing is so smooth and quiet it's unreal. And very responsive when you touch the throttle. I've never had a outboard that I could feel the power, this one has it. Highly recommend to anyone!
What kind of price tag would one of those go for these days?
I'm curious as I think my 03 40 2 stroke was $3500 or so.
$7100 for the 70 horse. I've heard a hundred bucks a horse and that's about what it shook out to. Hope it lasts me for many years. I've never been a guy that would buy new on something like that but I'm satisfied and the wife didn't kill me so all is well I suppose!
Is that the installed price?
