Guys, I have been having a terrible time trying to access this site for quite a while now. (Not sure what's going on, but so frustrating I have pretty much given up on THT.)

With 150 hours, that Honda 225 is barely broken in. That engine probably cost them between $17-19K installed, in case that helps you to better understand values.

Bump.

I ordered the bucket of chain along with several other items for delivery to the local WM store.

I never got a call or email - - have not heard word one about my order.

Anybody else?

Smart -- it's definitely worth a comparison, anyway. Like said, the Merc 115 CT is a surprisingly small price differential. But the 90 CT is a VERY solid 2.1L engine.

Again, do you own and/or are you in any way involved with the sale of Evinrude products?

Ken,

Sounds like a neat project.

As others mentioned, the Merc 90 Fourstroke with the Command Thrust (CT) gearcase should be at the top of your list. It has significantly more displacement,...

Wow, you are doing some nice work there.

That's a fairly rare model 15 CC Super Sport, with the rear deck no less. Neat.

By the way, nice truck too. What model is it?

Old G1 ETEC narrative: "Tell them our engines are powerful and lightweight."

Those Calcuttas are very nice. If you can afford it -- lucky you!

The Tideline 235 is interesting too. What is the preferred power on that?

Are you saying that a lightweight 3.4L 175 HP engine doesn't fit that mold? Who sells a higher displacement, lighter weight 175? Who sells a lighter weight 200?

As said, the 175 and 200...

If they continue to follow this approach, in my opinion they are more...

Adma, maybe. But that would be a wide range for one block. Recent precedent doesn't have them trying to cover that much range with a single block. E.g.,

2.1L = 75-115 HP (40HP range);

Adam, you make some good points. But I think many of your comments around the 225 are in the context of twins on larger boats than they are targeting.

Also, the classic 17SS tends to run high in price, in my experience. Maybe because they are more rare?
