Thanks for all the replies and help, guys. As luck would have it, I came across a '99 Merc (2 stroke) 4 hp that a guy just needed to get rid of. Even had long shaft. Purrs!! :)
Maybe I need to ask for more things on here. lol
Recently purchased '87 C-16 with same model Evinrude 4. It runs fine, but looking to upgrade to a 4 stroke. What suggestions do you sailing vets have as a replacement? Will be used in salt water and fresh. Thanks.
