I swear that I got the only one in the country that was in stock. All the marinas online said out of stock, back ordered, or floating on some barge somewhere. Good luck.

If you don't mind me asking how much does it weigh? The only downside I can see with my little 8 horse Yamaha 4 cycle is it seems to weigh a l lot more than a 8 horse 2 cycle. Getting it on and off my transom for this old man is quite the chore! Oh I can carry it along but lifting it up is the hard part!

Again beautiful motor!

Heck that's not much more proportionally than my 8 horse Yamaha! I could look it up but mine feels like it's about 100 lbs.!

Thanks for responding!

It is the lightest outboard in it's class. I would have preferred the F N R shift to be on the tiller handle like some but those motors were pushing 200 + pounds and I was concerned with weight. Plus none of them were in stock..anywhere in the states. I even tried to order one from Singapore but had troubles with the money transfer so searched for any 30 hp in stock in the states. This one came up from Tennessee I believe.

It's older than that. I bought it used but don't recall the age. But it still feels like 100 lbs!

Sounds about right! Thanks for looking.

I dropped mine off at the local marina to get serviced. Maybe next time I'll do it myself .

She's on and ready for some tooling around at 1/2 and 3/4 throttle to finish out the break in period.
Got just a bit of wiring to clean up before she's ready for the water.

It should move her pretty good, especially compared to the old 20.
And being a 4 stroke, will troll WAY down for you.
Real quiet too!

Have fun.

Thats what I call Sweet  :thumbup_smilie:  Out of curiosity what kind of $$$$ ? I'd like to switch out a 40HP 2 stroke to like  40-60 4 stroke on a 16' Lund.
