Most are pretty sketchy.
Get references, or walk.

I got a good reference about Jacos, but they only sell Mercury , which would be my 3rd choice.
thanks

Jacos, C&O, are reliable, but there's a bunch that try to ship motors from Honk Kong be very careful with them.

I would not have it any other way , does not matter , they do not have the motor I need,

I have checked with multiple online dealers, have not found a 175 or 200 hp long shaft motor.

guess I will just have to wait it out frown

I bought a Merc from Jaco on the recommendation from the Merc tech that put it on for me. Very pleased. With both. If you don't know Joe at Town and Country Marine in Hallsville, you need to meet him.

Thanks for the Reply's Finally found a motor from Boating Specialists out of Ventura Ca,
The motor was shipped to Nautical Mile in Flint, ( hiway 155 south of Tyler),
There was a mixup on the key switch, so will be waiting on that part.
Should be back on the water soon.


Steve , Are you " the Prop " guy ?

if so, what prop would you recommend for a 2000 Bluewave 22ft CC, Matched with Yamaha 4 stroke , inline 4 , 200 hp ?

thanks

Tunnel or not?
Get with Josh, powertech makes some really good CC props, but it's a whole different setup with or without tunnel.
