I am looking to repower a 22Ft 1985 Revenge Cuddy. I have twin 90 JOhnsons on it right now, and am looking at twin 115 Yamaha's. Problem is that I'm in California and would have to go with 4 strokes which weigh 418 LBS each. I would go with twin 100's but they don't make this size with counter rotating props. Any thoughts?

I was just talking to my Yamaha mechanic last week about putting twin 90s on my
outrage. He said I would have to go to Reno to get them. Probably save a little on taxes also.

SF: Take a look at Mercurys' 115 four stroke. Same engine as Yamaha, but for some reason it's only 386LB. Bass Pro sells them for $7100 each, if they have an Outdoor Adventure world in your area.

Tom, I just saw a price list from a Merc Dealer in FL who sells 2001 oil injected, Power Trim Merc 90HP 2 strokes for $4500.
You can have them shipped to you, in original box, for about $150 each and save the sales tax besides. There is a saltwater version that is $200 more. Your Yamaha controls can be used. This is the best price I've seen so far on engines. The same engine in 75HP version is $4300.

I would go with 115's, if you can. I have them on my 22 revenge and the boat will fly. My only problem right now is that they are Johnsons. I think that problem should be fixed soon. The four strokes would give you great fuel economy and added HP. I doubt the weight would matter much.

Thanks Larry but I was just talking. My Yammies are running fine. I need hydraulic steering and my bottom paint removed for my next project.
