I have a friend from outside that leaves his 21' Starcraft here all year & comes up to fish halibut & silvers 2 weeks a year.
He's looking to repower from 2 older 40 hp Yamahas to a single engine & found a 2004 130 hp 4 stroke Honda. Before he left for Montana Friday he made a verbal deal on the motor pending my physical inspection of it tomorrow (Monday).
Anything in particular to look for on these? Were there any particular problems with them? I'm a fair mechanic but not an outboard guy.
How are they on fuel?
It doesn't have a prop, so suggested props for this setup (6 people & gear)?
I want him to have dependable power because there's nothing worse than having a boat in your yard that you can use for nothing but the price of gas 50 weeks a year that you don't trust
