HELP, I'M LOOKING AT BUYING A BOAT THAT HAS a 2004 Evinrude 200hp Direct Injection motor. I know that BRP bought OMC in 2000 and shut down manufacturing until they built a new factory and renewed all tolerances before they restarted production.
My question is ...I guess in 2004 the Evinrude under BRP was still using the Ficht injection, but, are these engines better than they were under OMC build?? I've heard they are far superior to the OMC's builds and are good engines.
I really like the boat but, it's not priced with the option to re power as an option.
Any you guy's "in the know" can give me any advice?? The seller say's the engine runs great and has 460hours.
I love the smell and sound of a 2 stroke in the mornings.
