I know 4-strokes are the big thing in outboards right now, but when someone is searching for a good dependable 2-3hp outboard, no one brings up the Johnson/Evinrude motors? I've got a major preference to these motors since they deliver alot of power for the size. The big advantage they have over any other 3hp motor is they are 2cyl. I run mine on a 75:1 oil mix and its just happy. I use mine on a 14' jonboat and even with 2 people in it, it will still plane off and move. For the most part, they can be had for under $500 in good shape.
