Good day all,
I need a new outboard
for my 8 ft fiberglass
dink. I use this only to get from my dock
to my mooring
, about 1/2 mile ( 1 KM ). I had an old gamefisher I bought for $100US, that was fine but I am getting tired of fixing it. I only need 3 or 3 1/2 Hp. I was considering buying
or Suzuki but they all seem to be $900 to $1000. So I came across these cheap
Chinese outboards that come under various names. Example below. Anyone had any experience with these? Considering my limited use I am assuming these would be sufficient. Let me know your thoughts.
Before anyone mentions it, yes I can row instead. If I am alone I always row. However with a couple guests and gear
and if the wind
is against me rowing a flat bottom dink is not so much fun anymore.
