HONDAs!!! My neighbor has a pair of 225 Honda 4 strokes on the back of his world cat. Ran 100 miles out to the canyon, trolled 6 hours then ran home. Used 154 gallons of gas. At trolling speeds they only burn 2.5 gallons an hour. They are the quietest smoothest running engines I have ever seen.

Would you be interested in selling your OMC V8's? if so how much?



Thanks

When I re-power the OMC's will be sold. They have less than 50 hours. Between 5000.00 and 7000.00 for the pair. I need to replace them with something that will push my 12000lb boat. Any suggestions?
