info request

I've decided to upgrade my dinghy and outboard and am looking for sources in the states. I would like to purchase a 10' AB lite RIB and a 15 HP, 2 stroke Yamaha outboard. I'm currently in the Bahamas and will head back to the states mid month via Florida then up the east coast to Norfolk area.

If anyone knows where I might find thses items at good to excellent prices, I'd appreciate the input.

Thanks

If you're looking for new, buy the outboard in the Bahamas. It is REALLY hard to find a new 2 stroke in the US and the 4's are so much heavier.

Review some of the other threads on this forum, outboards are cheaper in the Bahamas than in the US (Unlike most other stuff).

thanks. I did explore that and all I could find was Yamaha Enduros. Very basic, low end models...50 to 1 oil. I'm told no US dealers will service them.
