Lots of opinions on this subject, expand the post back through last year using the little box up in the right hand corner "show topics from the last xxxxx" and start to read -- then if you have specific questions either expand a previous post you read with your own thread or post a new post with your questions or thoughts.

Hi freak. Can't comment on all of 'em, but I have a new 2002 Mercury 3 cylinder 40 hp EO hangin' on my 1972 sport. My search was made easily because not many companies make a 40 in the short shaft that is not a tiller. I can't comment on longevity, but she is silky and strong so far. It is heavy at 204lb. The 2 cylinder is less so, but that one is only available in the 20 inch shaft. As far as "best" goes, I think all these motors will work well for ya if you take care of 'em.

Hmmmmm. Whalerfreak posted on 6/9/01 "I own a Honda 40 and it is great on my Sport 15."

Now it's "buying a new boat and I am lost."

I wish people who don't really know things would quit posting their "knowledge" on this site. I'm not an expert on anything when it comes to this stuff and I like learning as much as I can from this site. It is frustrating reading trying filter out the BS from the truth. This is in reference to whalerfreak45s comment on a separate performance thread and the like...........

" definetly think the honda is better. i own a 40 honda which is basiclly the same as the fifty and it outperforms anything on the water."
