Question

I am scheduled to have one of these motors hung on the back of my pro-v tomorrow morning at 8:30 AM. In the words of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," Did I choose wisely??

In my opinion, Yes! Yamaha makes an excellent motor. I own one myself.

Congratulations and enjoy your new outboard. smile.gif

Good fishing

196TH,

I just bought the exact same motor last month. So far, about 50 hours or so, it's been everything I expected--and more. It's extremely quite at every rpm level, with the exception of wide open--where it's still a bit smoother than other 90/100 hp's I've sat next to. I personally feel it's very quick out of the hole, and it pushes my Crestliner 1750 Fish hawk and myself at 42mph. With a partner, she cruises at 38. She doesn't troll down past 2.5mph yet, but she's on a downward trend, and fellow users tell me she'll soon settle in at 1.8, or so. The most pleasant surprise so far has been the outstanding gas mileage. I'm getting 6 or 7 mpg easily. I've only used a tank and a half of fuel so far, and my new graph shows 191 miles of travel. We chose wisely.

P.s. My technician spent almost 45 minutes with me when I picked her up at the dealer. He was very thorough in his explanation of do's and dont's--particularly in regards to break in period. This really helped, and you should insist on this.

Good luck!

Just a ? on yamahas. With back trolling do you find that they go to one side more than the other? My 40hp marnier does and no way to change this.Im refering to the tiller style.
thanks

My Yamaha has an adjustable tension lever for the steering, so I can tighten it up a little bit when I am back trolling.

You can also play with the trim and tilt a little bit, as I find a little different tilt to the motor helps "balance" it out better.

Good fishing.

I agree, the steering tension lever prevents unwanted "travel", but trimming up a bit (you'll have to experiment)makes tracking very straight and true.

I have been running a Yamaha 80 4 stroke and have been very happy with it. I think you will be amazed at the overall performance and fuel efficiency. Good Fishing!!

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.
    • Andre.y
      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
