Greetings to everyone.
I've had the privilege to view this forum for many months, but this is my first post/thread.
It is very clear that there are lots of individuals with vast amounts of knowledge and experience in Alaskan Saltwater on this forum.
I'm in need of some advice. I am planning to replace my current outboard marine engines (Evinrude E-Tecs 150s) on my 30 ft Harbercaft KingFisher. To keep it clean.... I have no confidence in these engines and will not purchase E-Tecs again.
Lots of research on Suzukis, Hondas, Yamahas, etc.. have left me without a clear front runner.
Can anyone offer advice or an opinion on good, safe consistent engines that I might put on our boat.
We spend a lot of time in PWS, around Montague Island and Hitchenbrook Island in the summertime going out of Whittier and Seward.
Any advice or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
I would also like to say a great big THANK YOU to all who share their experiences and advice on this blog. Your generosity with your time, knowledge and advice to all who view this forum is greatly, greatly appreciated.
