looking for a new 225 or 200 or 175 hp motor , e-tec, zuki, merc. don't really care but a good warranty would be nice. Anyone with any good ideas would be much appreciated!!! Motors with rebates or money off or a slightly used motor would also be considered, thanks!

Third for Whalen's Marine. I know many people on this site who have dealt with Whalen's and they all have good things to say about Doug Whalen, the crew at his business and Suzuki outboards.

I agree, call Doug for the best price and best service on the Zukis!:thumbup:

But if you want a 2-stroke go with the E Tec. I just rigged a 2009 225 HO on my 23' walkaround and the figgin thing will blow you away! If you have any ?s about the E Tecs just give me a shout cause I spent countless hours researching the E Tecs.

I no longer work with Whalen's Marine, However still I recommend the Suzuki. I have been working with these engines specificly for several years now and they are second to none.

If your decision comes down to the Zuke 175hp or 200hp, I would recommend the 175HP.

It is much lighter engine with one heck of a punch. This allows your boat to have a more efficiant over-all power to weight ratio.

It also features a Battery Isolater system that is great for boats with (2)dual or more batteries.(Most fishing boats do)

Just my two cents:thumbup:

I have a 250 HP E Tec and love it. With the jack plate up, trim tabs down it will plane off in 16” of water. Starts quickly every time, can have a conversation without screaming, great on fuel & not too bad on oil consumption.

Thanks for all the help guys, I really appreciate it. Does anyone have any leads on any 175hp used Zukis or evinrudes up to about 3 years old I guess. If someone wants to power up their boat with a bigger engine I might want their lesser hp motor!!!! Call me at 1-757-724-8686, THANKS AGAIN JASON b.
