Looking at a new boat. Choices are 150 l 4 stroke or a 150 optimax? Price is basically the same. Will be on a 19!ft aluminum bass boat. A lot of no wake run time with occasional river runs. Thanks for any help you can offer

I am not real familiar with the 4 strokes except what I have heard but I have had 2 strokes for years....and 2 strokes don't like the long low rpm run times at all. I believe the 4 stroke would be much better for that application from what I have heard.
