My 1995 23WA Parker lost its Johnson 200 Oceanrunner on Sunday.. The piston rod went through the sidewall on my last trip of the year.

I am in need a new engine and am on a budget. I'd prefer the workhorse of the industry, a Yamaha, but will consider something else if the price is right.

I am looking for something rebuilt or with low hours possible from the late 90's or newer...

Also, does anyone have any ideas on how much I should be looking to spend and how to finance an expense of this nature.

Christmas is around the corner and I have been a good boy... Does Santa fish in his off time?
I am trying to keep positive because it could of happened in May...

Barnacle Bill can set you right with a GREAT deal on motors, I think he has used ones now and then, but defintely THE SWEETEST deals on new. Hell even finance you with a BB card, first few months are interest free I THINK, not sure but I THINK Hes got a deal like that going on,ask him Im sure hell tell you all about it.

If there such a time bomb why dont you hear any horror storys about them??? Sounds to me like your just a BRP basher. Out off all the ETEC's we sold we had only one back. We have some commercial boats with over 1,000 hours and no problems. Everyone has there personal engine brand they like. You like yam's good for you.

for what it's worth.....
DO NOT BUY USED WITHOUT CHECKING THE ENGINE OUT!!!! beware of these"shady fly by night" wanna be mechanics too....
any and all engines will fail-they're mechanical...no engine is imune to break downs....maintainance is the key to a long life,you can have the best engine made and destroy it in a season by lack of care and services...
