After being without a boat for a few years and recently retired I thought I would buy a good used boat. I have been checking Craig's list Wisconsin. By far most of the boats have either an Evinrude or Johnson motor. I know they are both made by Evinrude. I am sure Mercury,Yamaha,Honda,Mariner and others are good units as well and have been around for a long time especially Mercury. Does anyone have a reason why they are more popular?
