Buying an outboard (22 seafarer)
I do not know anything about engines... I intend to buy a new engine with a nice warranty, but I have no idea where to start. 1) what brand? 2) what size motor?
BOAT- 22 Seafarer, LOA 21'8", LWL 18'4", BEAM 7'5", DISPLACEMENT 2400 lbs
THANK YOU!!! Everyone who posted their thoughts, I really appreciate your help. It turns out I went with a SUZUKI 4-stroke, DF9.9. Its got an electric start (and pull start), its got a battery charging coil as well as the proper shaft length of 20". I'll update with my results after launch - thanks again!!!
LAUNCH!!! 6/17/2006 WOW!!! This engine has changed my life.. I cannot believe what a piece of garbage my old motor was! Docking is an absolute DREAM, and its light --- not to mention that the electric start is AWESOME!!!
