a 4 stroker that large will cost you big bucks, I am thinking at least $7000. Outboard motor prices are out of this world in pricing now, but the newer 4 strokers with EFI are superb. I rode on a big 27 footer with 2 225 Yamaha 4 strokers and they were powerfull and quiet. Great engines. Jack.

Unless you need to replace it for other reasons I would kepp the 2 stroke...  I would say new 4 stroke 150 is 8-9k easy. :D

Cost is true

The cost is higher bbut the saving in fuel if you use the boat is a lot.

A friend has a 115 2-stroke and me a 90 4-stroke.  If we go out on a trip he burns 1/3 to 1/2 more fuel than I do.  On a 150 mile round trip it adds up.

the new mercury optimax and evinrude e-tec get better fuel mileage then the 4-strokes. and they don't weigh near as much and run faster.
