Well not me but my outboard. My old 86 70 Yamaha needed a rest so I got a newer 97 to help it out. Went over to New Hampshire today and picked it up. After the ride home it was on and running in an hour. Runs sweet and will try it on the lake in the morning.

Those are awesome outboards! I ran the starch out of a 1996 for years and years, never had a hiccup.

Had an '84 model 70hp Yammy on my previous boat (1550 Glasstream) .... boat is dust, but the motor is still tickin' according to the last report I got from the new owner. They are tough little dudes ... you should get many years of good performance from yours.

Way to go. I put a 1996 40 HP 4 cylinder mercury on my old boat a few weeks ago. Now swapping it over to tiller handle. So have to pick up some Rivets to fill in the side console rivets holes.

Always ways nice to upgrade motors or boats. I recently upgraded a 1999 Mercury 90 to a 2007 optimax 150 and love it. If you like yours as much as I like mine you will be one happy fishermen.thanks for sharing

Good deal on the swap. I run an '88 150 mariner that is thirsty. I'd like to get into a newer motor with better fuel economy. Motor runs great so I continue to feed it. One day....

I here you on the gas. I often feel the same way.

I bought a 96 Yamaha 75hp off a friend's Express tin boat that got t-boned when a lady ran a stop sign. The only thing not destroyed was the 75 (non-oil injected). It gave me 20 years of bullet-proof service and is still going strong for the guy I sold the rig to. The only thing I ever had an issue with was one carb being a little slow to perform when it had been setting up. I started running Stabil and Seafoam in my fuel and that issue went away.

I hope you have many years of great service.

When I was shopping for my new rig, it came down to Yamaha and Suzuki. I bought the Suzuki because Yamaha didn't build a 140hp. My 1st Yamaha was bought in 1984 and was the 1st one I ever saw on KY lake.

I think envy is supposed to be a sin but I sure do envy the fishery you folks have up there. Some of the nicest fish I get to see each season. I had no idea you had redears like that.
