Hey Guys,

Does anyone have any knowledge of the performance of the older Yamaha 4-stroke outboards. I am looking at a 1988 9.9hp high thrust 4-stoke to use as a kicker motor on my Montauk. The motor checks out fine, I would just like to know how they compare to todays models.

Howdy, Rhemra.

Except for being a mite heavy at 107lb, the Yammy 9.9 is a fine engine. Smooth and quiet, uses about a gallon a year.

They weigh a ton. I sold off a long shaft version 6 months ago be/c it was not practical for a boat (22') not completely commited to fishing. Too heavy to take on and off. My friend who now owns the engine lists (Proline 21') to the starboard too much of the time to suit me. It is perfectly suited to large offshore fishing boats (e.g. Grady-W). I can't imagine one on a 17' Whaler. .03 David
