I've been searching for months for a 75hp 2 stroke Merc to replace my 2009 50hp Merc 2 stroke. I built a hardsided aluminum blind on my boat last year and the 50 just doesn't cut it with 2 or more people and my 2011 Lowe 1760sc is rated for a 75hp but I don't want a 4 stroke because I don't think that would really out perform the 50. So back to my topic I see Tohatsu actually makes a 2 stroke and I was wondering if any one has any experience with there mid range 2 stroke. I've never owned any thing but a Merc and I don't want to buy new but I'm afraid I'll run out of time before the season gets here and I've sold the 50 and won't be able to fish once it's gone. As far as overpowering like the thread below mine I've been told that the State Parks personal in Utah are sticklers for obeying the manufactures tag.
