Still shopping for an outboard for my 13' Whaler. Leaning toward a 40hp Honda. If you have had one, or one like it, what has been your experience?
Lots of guys around here use Yamaha outboards.,,
My buddy just put a new 40 evinrude on his boat. He loves it. Since Bombardier acquired OMC which made evinrude johnson omc. They corrected the problems with the fuel injection system that fouled the prior units.
They have nice warren-tees on these evinrude johnson o/b's now so they are better. Not seeing any 40 hp honda's round here.
They are both a bit hard to start. They do have electric start, but take a bit of cranking, and some warm up time. They are very quiet, and real good on gas. 4 days of trolling Salmon on 13 gal of gas!
Gotta agree. Honda makes a good one. 40 HP on a 13' Whaler Wow. We've had one for years with a 35 and it's MORE than enough. Good luck, it's a great little boat.
That 40Hp. Honda 4-stroke is gonna weigh about the same as a 70Hp. John-Rude.BUT,,, at Idle/low speed, U can sneak up on ANYTHING.THEY ARE QUIET
