TheHisway is on a distinguished road
, i had a 9.9 yamaha 1993 build. took a knockdown in the palmico sound 1 mile west of the outer banks. washed 1200 ft onto a shoal. the motor filled with water and the transmission linkage snapped upon impact with a shoal moments later. however once the wind subsided a little over 40 hours later... the motor started and spun the prop just enough to get me to head into the waves with a lost rudder. i now have a honda 8 and i must say the yamaha was much more quiet. i would say buy used
Even on my best day against nature, its a draw.
