Re: Sican Out board

There is some company advertising Chinese made OB's down here that look good and are very reasonably priced. However, as a charter boat we can not have an unreliable OB, period. So I emailed them to see if they wanted to put one into the hard charter boat service with us as a test at a discounted price. Not even the simplest reply of no. I'm not taking a chance on that company, no matter how cheap the OB.
You might wish to contact the company or distributor and see if you get any reply before you put any money out. It would be really unfortunate to have your OB out of commission because of a little, inexpensive part you can't get.
