Not hard at all. It's not like having to pour. Be right back. Gotta pour me some coffee. I'll need to concentrate, take one hour to pour and a bit longer to dispose of my old coffee.

I think "practically all" is what he meant, lol. Maybe Yam will release the failure rates then? We are all just worried sick about those Yams, you know? After all, what is up with Yamaha outboards?

I hope that history remembers 7 Marine kindly for the impressive hp gap created and the motivation to get Merc there.

The perfect storm created the 4 stroke market. The EPA requirements meant that very few manufacturers had the 2 stroke tech needed to stay in compliance. OMC was going bankrupt, but owned the FICHT...

How long until Alloyboy can't ignore the urge to respond with the ultimate irony. This is making THT great again. Set the trap.

I respect that. I would consider resale too if I flipped equipment often, I just tend to hang on to things.

Perhaps one, just one, 4 stroke manufacturer will finally come out with an outboard that is as easy to maintain for a lift-kept boat like my G1 has for over a dozen years for me.

Please BRP, do not make them quiet as a Vrod or require maintenance like a 4 stroke just to try to fit in.

2 complaints seem to fly on the internet regarding G2.
1) Because being a 2 stroke,...

My father had a 1985 with a 225 high output (240ish hp). It cruised easy in high 30s, WOT around 55 but the hull didn't seem safe at that speed.

I would feel like I hit the lottery if I was in the market, found my ideal hull, and it had G1. Enjoy. I sometimes wish it were louder though to drown out the music the kids choose at times.

Dark thighs matter. White meat is for feel-good, guilt blockers like salad. Like a good steak, fat is taste.

The resale will be garbage compared to other models of Yamaha. Less than 200 hours? Unless you are printing money, run that sucker for years until it forces you to repower.

Enjoy the boat.

You may have other reasons to tow more than a half mile though, such as service, hurricane evac, etc. Food for thought.
