The fella in the camp next to us has a hydrasports with twin 250 etecs, he loves them. He was just sayin that the oil ain't cheap for them.

My only experience with etec was on ohface's boat, but I was very impressed.

I'm a 2 stroke fan, but the 4 strokes are great these days.
I have a 4 stroke 115 and love it...EXCEPT for having to bring it in for an oil change once a year. Getting pricey.

I just changed the oil on our Yamaha 115. It was really easy.

You can either change oil or burn it.

If you're talking overall performance I agree. It's a more reliable motor too. The think I love about the 2 stroke is that it will launch your arse out of the water. Do I need that? No but it's fun as hell and i like it


Yeti weren't you surprised at how bad the hole shot was with the 250 sho? Extremely similar to your setup is the way I remember you describing it.

I wouldn't call it bad. I was just very underwhelmed. Seemed just like my f250

If you want to get high on smoke every morning go ahead and get you a mercury, at least when you are broke down you will be fricked up
