Ok dogs it’s time to get a new main motor for my 20’ raider. Currently has a 90 horse 2 stroke mercury on it. She pushes it just fine but is cold blooded as hell. And wanting to get away from 2 stroke oil. I have a 2020 4 stroke 25 horse Yamaha I’m putting on for a kicker”runs flawless”. Looking at a 115 since neither mercury or Yamaha sells a 135 that my boat is rated for. Both brands go from 115 to 150 with nothing in between. So in your opinion what is the best salt water motor. I fish salt 80 percent of the time. Thanks for your input. Good or bad

Service is important unless you don't mind driving. And it looks like the supply train has come in with most brands being back in stock if you call around this year. With salmon season dead on the Westcoast I think finding whatever you want possible. Exciting for you to buy a new motor congrats have fun..when spending that kind of money don't feel bad about asking as many questions necessary from your dealer to make you feel completely comfortable about your purchase. If they roll their eyes or don't have time for you move on to the next dealer..good luck
