    2022 Sea Ray 230 SPX

    Hi everyone this is Ruth with Peters Marine. This 230 SPX was originally bought from us. It's about as close to getting a new boat as you can get without the new boat price tag. Fresh water use ONLY, as well! To view more pictures and get more information click the link below! :)...

    Outboard & battery switch

    Can I exclude the big lead from a Suzuki DF140 from the battery switch I am installing without unintended consequences? Repowered Searay has one engine and one battery. Switch is solely to prevent parasitic drain. Intent is to retain power tilt in "off" position. EG, could I turn off outboard if...

    Women hate outboards?

    Do girls and women dislike 4-stroke outboards as much as 2-strokes? I'm serious, I thought my 21' ski Hydrostream with the injected 220 hp Merc outboard was the functional ultimate. Light, easy to tow, planed instantly, started and idled well, smelled some, didn't hold a course well but we were...

    Two-stroke requiem

    Somehow I thought I might have a new 2-stroke again. Not in the USA at least. Two barely smokers survived with drilled cranks and stuff like the Mercury Optimax's trick alloy but Mercury has a full line of these Chinese Verado 4-strokes so Optimax is gone and Carl Kiekhaefer is turning over in...

    Any owners of a new 320 DA OB?

    Anyone purchase or taken a lengthy ride on a new 320 DA w/outboards? Hard to find performance and test data with the triple 250s. Other than losing most the swim platform it seems like a winner for Bahama runs from Florida?

    2008 West Marine Zodiac with Suzuki Outboard

    2008 West Marine 11.5' Zodiac has high pressure floor, wood bench seat, oars. The zodiac is just a bit too big for towing behind our boat so we need to get rid of her. It comes with a '87 Suzuki DT9.9 2 stroke outboard that runs great. The engine cover was painted by the previous owner and...

    possible choke stuck

    I just purchased a 1988 sea ray seville 16ft with a 100hp o/b. I took it out for the 1st time the other day and it ran great. Then anchored for a few hours, tried to start it and the battery went dead. Is it possible the choke is stuck now. Put a new battery in it and it will start and idle and...
