Default Outboard Motors

I have a small 18 foot fishing boat that I would like to put a new motor on. I'm looking for 75 to 90 hp. I would buy used if the motor was in decent shape and newer model, but I'm probably looking for something a little more trouble free and maybe with a warranty.
Does anybody know a place with good prices on one or does anyone on the board have one for sale?

I'm not brand specific.

2 stroke 90 HP Yamaha cannot be beat. Light, dependable... Shop the dealers, check the net, its boat show time and they are dealing

It's a small center console Wellcraft that had an Evinrude on it. It will handle the weight no problem. The motor is junk and I would like to put something new in rather than pay to rebuild the old one.
I'll check out the Yami, I figured somebody would post a link to great deal somewhere.
I'm in no hurry though, I got the boat for almost nothing and would like to fix her up to do some fishing and let my teenage boy use it.

How do I figure that out? I had someone ask me what size shaft I need, I guess your talking where the motor ends up in the water kinda like an x-dim. for a stern drive?
