I'm in the market for a new 4 stroke outboard, somewhere in the range of 150-200HP. I searched and couldn't find any threads on this subject, so here goes. I'm looking for opinions on the differences between brands as well as pros/cons for each brand. I feel it's better to hear from the owners rather than listen to the salesmen...the brand they sell is always the best.
Please comment on any horsepower as someone else may also find this thread useful. I am specifically interested in Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki and Mercury, but please chime in if I should be considering another.
