Re: 2 stroke vs 4 stroke outboard in Caribbean

It started on the second pull out of the box, idles dead quiet and just gets one of us on plane at 1/4 throttle (max allowed during this break-in time).


Great info, thanks! -C

Any ideas on storing the outboard (upright) below deck while cruising . Photo if possible please.

Thanks Andy

SO thanks to all the great information posted in this thread. I got my hands on a used, good condition 2-stroke Nissan 8HP!
