re: Outboards: 2 stroke vs. 4 stroke (Posted on 7/11/13 at 3:37 pm to LouisianaChessie)
2 stroke is cheaper & lighter. 4 stroke is quieter
I have decided to hang on to my boat for another year but will likely be repowering it again in a few months. If you are in the market for a lightly used 250 pro xs *30 hrs*, let me know & I'll cut you one hell of a deal...

good to know, I've just been told by mechanics they don't hold up to harsh south la conditions, had a couple buddies that had them on bass boats and got rid of em bc they had nothing but problems, you probly take better care of your shite than they do though

The oil is pretty expensive but after the first 10 hours or so on the engine it barely uses any. It also helps keep less wear and tear on the engine (so I'm told). My boat when filled up weights like 8500 lbs. I run my twin etecs at 4200 rpms, cruise at 38 mph. And get 3.5 mpg.
