Default Yamaha

I bought a Alumacraft 10 years ago with a 115 Yama on it. A couple months later I was at Dana Point CA dock an 90% of the ocean going boats had a Yama on it. I was stunned.

I spend a few weeks every year fishing everglades/florida keys and Biscayne bay areas. 70% run Yamaha, 15% Mercury, 15% Suzuki. Suzuki seems to be dominating the repower market down there because they are cheaper than the rest. Also beginning to see a lot of new merc V8 motors. I'm not partial to any motor brand but the older Yamaha's I've seen seem to be in best condition. I think their corrosion protection is best.

HRG

An aside.......

Why is the Lund Pro Guide 2075 (essentially the same boat) rated up to a 250hp, while the 205 is only rated to a 200hp?


I am between these two boats and I am leaning towards the 205 with a 200SHO. Although, there is a Lund dealer near me that will put a 'Hammer on if I choose.

However, the cost difference is roughly $8,000-$10,000 between the two. I do not believe the Lund is that much better!

To answer you question, as I look at it.....some people believe levi's are the only jeans to buy, and cost more than say wrangler. Both are jeans, both do the particular job intended. Same with a Chevy vs cadillac, for some people perception is everything. I have a son-in-law who is all about the brand name. Now before someone jumps down my neck and cries "what about resale"........resale percentages of original retail on similar models are very close. It's your money, spend it as you wish.

You and I think alike. My dealer, when asked about which motor to put on the back of my boat, he simply said "If you put on a Yamaha or Honda, I will not see you again, if you put on a Merc or Etec, I will be seeing you within a year when you have a problem. Those are the engines he sold at the time, and that was 2010. Some things don't change much.
