Yamaha will be introducing a 150 4-stroke soon. You may want to take a serious look at the specs before buying any other motor. I've had Honda's and was as happy with them, as I am with my Yamaha's. Good luck.

If your going to put a pump on it you might as well go with the honda 200hp. It weighs the same as the 130hp. The differecne is the 130 has been tuned down. At least that is what the dealers I talked to told me. More HP is better. If the weight is the same then I may be something to think about. Just my thoughts if it's honda's your considering.

Thinking about upgrading the motor on my 1995 19' Alumaweld Formula Vee. Currently have a Honda 90 and spend most of time in bay and river and on nice days in the ocean out of Winchester Bay. Thinking about putting a Honda 130 on the boat. Salemans says the boat can handle it fine and won't lower transom much. Any advice.
