re: Outboards: 2 stroke vs. 4 stroke


The hardest holeshot I've ever experienced with a fishing boat was an 18' aluminum center console with a 90 yammy 4 stroke.

Stupidly quick holeshot.

In my opinion, and I'm speaking from a freshwater perspective, if you're going with a four stroke get the Yamaha. They've had a much better track record than Mercury (Verado and its 2,000 moving parts) when it comes to higher horsepower 4 stroke engines. I'm admittedly a Yamaha guy (had an '04 150 and now a '09 200 - both bulletproof) but Mercury makes a very good 2 stroke engine and I wouldn't hesitate to buy one depending upon the boat/deal. If I was going to rank 2 strokes it would be 1a. Yam 1b. Merc d. Evinrude. To my knowledge Yamaha doesn't make 2 stroke engines above 175hp. 200hp and up are 4 stroke (SHO).
