Re: What to look for (or look out for) in small outboard
Spend the $300... when it blows up, expect to spend another $300 the following year, either rebuilding it, or replacing it.
I'm on my 3rd motor in 3 years, with 1 rebuild in between. They might be bulletproof, but they aren't fuel-proof (pun intended).
