Fried my old one. If anyone could point me in the direction of a good deal, I'd be eternally grateful. I just need a 6 hp, not too concerned about 2 or 4 stroke. Don't need an alternator, the solar panel works great for the bats! I'm in the Baltimore/ Washington area, so I could pick up around there. I've seen some internet deals but don't want to limit myself to that.
Can't wait to hear from y'all!

What ever you get make sure it's not a 15 inch if its for a sailboat. I did once. When ever the boat rocked over the waves it would leave the water and scream. It will drive you nuts. Long shafts for sailboats - at least 20 inches.

Be aware the four-stroke motors will be much heavier than the two-stroke models. Also, the advice about the long shaft is a good one.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
